So far, Iceland’s ally Germany and the executives of the EU have proposed a quota system which seeks to evenly distribute the migrants across EU; however, it has been vetoed by the majority of nations. This policy, called the Königsteiner key, has only been semi-successful in Germany because although many people have found shelter in Germany, many others reside in anti-Muslim locations or have been treated inhumanely across their treacherous journey in countries such as Hungary where people were treated as prisoners. It also does not distribute the migrants among Germany in a long term manner as it only uses the tax revenue and population of each city. Iceland has had a growing amount of immigration, which is increasing by around 1.5% annually.

...needs for other countries by utilizing its abundant renewable energy. Due to both social and economic reasons, countries have the obligation to convince their government leaders that climate change is happening at a drastic rate and institute policies now regarding clean energy for the welfare of their people and as mandated by the Kyoto Protocol. According to many experts, one being Bill McKibben, even though the carbon budget takes place, a total of 565 gigatons of Carbon is being used. Although this may seem productive in the short term, the long term losses far outweigh the short term gains. Farming lands will become arid; storms will devastate relief funds; territory wars will exacerbate; economic growth will severely slow down. If we carry out immediate change, consumers will save money in the long term, and renewable energy will help invigorate the job market.

- The Syrian Civil War is a four sided ongoing armed battle, which started in spring 2011. The War has caused unrest throughout the whole country, surrounding countries, and the world because it has caused the biggest refugee crisis since World War Two. President Obama announced last year that the United States will take in 10,000 Syrian refugees and many people believe that the number should be raised to 100,000. The humanitarian side of United States citizens wants to allow these people into our country, but according to Jessica Vaughan, director of the Center for Immigration Studies, 62% of Americans are on the logical side saying no to the motion (“Intelligence Squared”)....

- Right now the U.S. is facing a dilemma of whether they should or should not go to war against ISIS or the Islamic State (ISIL). This writer believes the U.S. should not go to war against ISIS. The reasons for this are simple. For one, going to war against ISIS or ISIL might validate what they are trying to accomplish. This is to get the moderates and turn them into extremists, thus spreading their influence and power globally. The second reason is going to war against them will leave the U.S open to inside attacks.... [tags: United States, World War II, Al-Qaeda]

- Stop U.S. Drone Attacks on ISIS and Syria Today, the technological innovation of drones, has become an increasingly controversial topic. In the war against ISIS, and terrorist targets in Syria, drone attacks have replaced on the ground combat as the primary fighting mechanism of The United States Military. Evidence presented for and against the continuation of U.S. drone attacks on ISIS and Syria are both valid and compelling, but the evidence against U.S. drone attacks resonates more clearly with a humanitarian outlook, as drone attacks against ISIS in occupied Syria have concluded in multitudes of civilian injury and death....

- Where is the humanity in today’s society. America’s status as a “nation of immigrants” is being put to the test. The conflict of immigration has been a fight for many years. But in recent times, it has come up as a big social issue in America. Many political figures have been debating over whether America should close its borders to the Syrian refugees or rather welcome the Syrian refugees who are in desperate need of asylum. Many believe it is better if the Syrian refugees were not allowed into the United States as they are considered to be a “potential threat” to the American society / people....

- At first glance, this chart can be a little deceiving. Without evaluating it too closely, it looks like Clinton voters think that ISIS/Radical Islam pose a great threat to the US. However, when looking at this information based on the demographics of our survey respondents, it makes more sense. The Northern Virginia/DC/Maryland area overwhelmingly is democratic. Therefore, the vast majority of our respondents are Clinton supporters. Looking at it from this lens, we can see that this question has a higher response of Clinton voters than any other voters....

Some of the refugees are fleeing to Europe and they are allowed inside to live in Europe and the United States is being pressured to allow more of those refugees to come to this country. Syrian refugees should not be admitted to the United States because the United States has many domestic problems of their own, there might be terrorists and extremists that pretend to be refugees that get into this country, and it will cost a lot to pay for those refugees that fled with nothing....

- What is Syria. Syria is a country located in the middle-east, and is the main source of refugees that are spreading across the world today. I’ve done a lot of research over the past few weeks over the Syrian refugee crisis. I’ve found the Al-Assad family has led Syria for over 46 years. Hafiz Al-Assad led from 1971-2000, and then Bashar Al-Assad from 2000 to present day. I also discovered that in 2011 many neighboring Middle Eastern countries had revolutions, over throwing their ruthless dictatorships.... [tags: Europe, Middle East, Turkey, Syria]
