A refugee's call to the West: ‘We will not forget: no-one helped Syrians; they’ve only helped Assad’

The Zaatari refugee camp near Mafraq, 8km from the Jordanian-Syrian border, is home to more than 80,000 Syrians

 “When Isis was created Europe and America directly got together with Nato and entered into Syria. But for three years Assad has massacred his people. And no one moved. Why?”
 I've just seen Kevin Ovenden, a former assistant to the Assad supporting George Galloway, write this:

 "The people fleeing to Europe are overwhelmingly from Syria, where Western policy has helped ensure social collapse in large parts of the country."

 It's very much the lie that Western support for the opposition rather than the lack of it has destroyed Syria and created the refugee crisis that makes Syrians so bitter about the West.
