Fact Check: Syrian refugees travelling to non Muslim Countries

News Claim: An image widely shared on social media showing a large number of Syrian refugees travelling to New Zealand to seek asylum.

Viral News Today: The distance from #Syria to UAE is only 2,637 kilometers, there is no natural barrier in between. Only land is land, it can be reached by walking.

The distance from Syria to New Zealand is 16,115 kilometers, there is a very big ocean in the middle...!!*

Without any aircraft or sailing, walking is impossible.

Yet, all these Muslims who call themselves war victims, helpless, helpless, completely poor refugees, go six and a half times far away from New Zealand without going to UAE.

They also get ships / boats to go, they also get ration and water on the way.

Ever wondered why and how this happens.

Just think that when there are 56 Islamic countries in the world out of 7 very rich (Gulf countries), why do any Muslim refugees go to non Islamic country instead of such Islamic country...??

′′ Muslim refugees are not a compulsion but a thoughtful conspiracy.

Understand in time otherwise they will explain themselves like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Syria, Turkey.
