Compassion literally means to suffer with, to suffer together, to share in the suffering. If you want to understand real compassion for refugees, look to Israel.
In the 1950s, Israel took in the Mizrachi Jews of the Middle East at a time when the country did not have enough food for everyone to have three meals a day. Compassion literally meant going hungry to absorb refugees who had lived in their homelands for a thousand years and were thrown out in a virtual single night.
Contrast that with the virtue-signaling liberals denouncing President Trump’s refugee policy. What suffering are they going to incur in order to absorb people who largely are not refugees in any legal sense but rather economic migrants?
The answer is simple. None.
