Billionaire Offers To Buy Island For Syrian Refugees

An Egyptian billionaire thinks that he might be able to single-handedly solve the Syrian refugee crisis. He wants to buy an island for refugees to flee to. Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola (Think Tank), Jimmy Dore, (The Jimmy Dore Show Podcast), and Brian Unger (All Things Considered), hosts of the The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“With no sustainable solution for Europe’s migrant crisis in sight, an Egyptian billionaire has stepped forward with a plan of his own.

  1. Naguib Sawiris you will be BLESSED magnanimously for buying an island for the refugees…Now all we need is a country that is willing to sell an island to re-locate refugees to!

  2. Am I the ONLY person that thinks this generous offer is amazing??? and who appreciates it? If I was a billionaire I would buy the island myself for the refugees. I hope it happens for the refugees sake.
