    None of the gulf states are accepting them because of fear of syrian reprisals (meaning terrorism) and no return dates. In those countries you dont get to live there without a work vusa, when the work is done you go home. You dont assimulate there. In the USA we expect people to
    assimulate and speak english. The gulf states are majority the sme religion as the majority of the refugees.
