‘Kick Them Out’: Syrian Women Tell Europe to Send Men Home to Rebuild Country

Victoria Friedman, Breitbart, December 26, 2018

Syrian women are complaining that there are not enough men to rebuild the county, and have told Europe and other Western countries that have absorbed their young men to “kick them out” and send them home.


“Look around, you just see women. The university, on the street, in cafes, just women,” students Safaa and Sheima told Sommarström.

Another student, Lina, also noted the disproportion of the country’s population, shattering the liberal illusion that the migrant waves of 2015 were comprised of women and children fleeing war.

To solve the problem, the young student said that the Syrian government should issue an amnesty to men who left the country to avoid military service so that they can help rebuild the country, pointing the finger at Western nations that took in all the young male Syrians.

“The solution is to kick them out and get them to Syria where they can start building the country again,” said Lina.

{snip} before the conflict started eight years ago, just over four per cent of households in Syria were economically led by women; now, the figure is just over 22 per cent, according to a survey by Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy.

Some of the young women have seen this as a positive; much like women entering the workforce en masse in the West during the Great War and World War Two, the dearth of men has allowed the position of women to progress in the Muslim country.


However others, like recent graduate Nabiha, this that some types of work are “not suitable for women.”

Many young women also said they fear not being able to marry and have a family because there are not enough men.
