London - Former Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks says that Great Britain must extend a humanitarian gesture along the lines of Kindertransport in doing its part to help aid the refugee crisis currently ongoing in Europe.

THEGUARDIAN.com (http://bit.ly/1VD9fCd) reports that Lord Sacks made his comments during an interview on BBC2’s Newsnight on Thursday, saying, “Europe is being tested as it has not been tested since the second world war … The European Union was created as a way of saying that we recognize human rights, after the catastrophe of two world wars and the Holocaust, and it’s very chilling to see some of these scenarios being re-enacted.”

Sacks said that with a collaborative effort from churches, religious groups, and charities he believes the UK could take in as many as 10,000 refugees and that “we would all be better for doing that.”

It was much easier with children who could share another child's bedroom and about whom you didn't have to worry about safety, than with whole families. Somebody has to come up with a workable plan on what to do with them one they arrive. I am not against it, I just think it is a nice idea, but the logistics are difficult.

To #2- Get real, will you! Those rich Arab countries could care less about Arab refugees. As Clark Gable stated at the end of the movie "Gone With the Wind", "quite frankly, they don't give a d--n".

Why,so they can grow up to be home grown terrorists? England has plenty of those already.

Let Europe who let in only a handful of Jewish refugee from Hitler's Germany do the same. Let in only a few Arab refugees, like only children and not their parents, let them stand and watch the other Arab countries also not admit any Arabs.

Let us see the world as it really is, a hateful place.
