Of course, the image of Syrian refugees flow toward the west European countries, particularly Germany and the disruption of these ways fully "east" toward the Gulf states seem strange and remarkable, is not in line with the ties that bind the peoples of the region, not to mention the geographical proximity.
It is worth mentioning that Saudi Arabia hosts more than half a million Syrians for a long time on its territory, and the UAE more than 150 thousand Syrians living as and worked for years in the two countries, the Gulf states, why the doors remain closed in this difficult circumstance? And why up about 350 thousand Syrian refugees this year to the European continent, and refugees and one up to the Gulf?
The Gulf states, which support most of them are still uprisings of the so-called Arab Spring, especially in Libya and Egypt and Syria, and provided money and weapons to the revolutionaries against their governments have tightened their procedures regarding refugees from some Arab countries, including Syria, for fear of transmission of "contagion" to it.

British famous writer Robert Fisk and attacked strongly Gulf states, wondered in an article published in the newspaper "The Independent" British secret of the keenness of many Syrians to resort to the European continent, instead of going to the rich Gulf states, despite the fact that many of them look at us as "infidels? ".

It can be said that the Syrian refugees are risking their lives and their families to reach European shores, and they sneak into European countries and arrange their situation. They are doing it all on their own and did not go to them European countries did not let them to it.
Similarly, refugees do not cut Mufazat and deserts towards the border into Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states, and they did not ride the Red Sea to reach the Empty Quarter desert, for many reasons, the most important of Europe that alternative is available, a committee promised for them and their children more than others.
