Every day we see pictures of dead refugees in the sea, we hear about ISIS (The “Islamic” state) and their atrocities committed against minorities and everyone who does not condone their form of ultra-orthodox Salafism. We hear about densely populated areas bombed by barrel bombs, we hear about the al-Assad forces committing war crimes and about refugees fleeing war and met by European police with rubber bullets and tear gas.
