The four-year-old Civil War in Iraq and Syria has displaced more than 3 million people in Iraq and more than half of the 23 million Syrian population have fled their homes. Syrian refugees looked to Europe for a better future and asylum, but the border countries of the European Union like Greece, Hungary and Slovakia have refused to take in the refugees, leading many to undertake a dangerous journey across seas to reach countries like Turkey, Germany, etc. that are willing to take them in.

Many countries in the European Union believe that taking in Syrian refugees will make their country an Islamic state, as Muslims have a higher reproductive rate. But how much of this is true? How much do we know about the refugee crisis? The refugee crisis has showcased the world how divided it can be and how humanitarian concerns are limited to just citizens of the country, not politicians. This video explains the European refugee crisis and Syria in 6 minutes and leaves a powerful impression on the viewer.
