Egyptian Billionaire offers Island for Syrian refugees


An Egyptian Billionaire by the name of Naguib Sawiris, who is said to be worth up to $2.9 billion dollars has made an offer on the table for the solution of the Syrian refugee situation happening in Europe. He made the following Tweet with details:

It might seem impossible to ever be put into action, but at least it’s the thought that counts considering that all of the Gulf nations are not accepting any Syrian refugees.

You certainly got that right, Mr. Sawiris.  Mr. Sawiris went into further details by saying

“It’s feasible. You have dozens of islands which are deserted and could accommodate hundreds of thousands.” 


Mr. Sawiris said that an island from Greece or Italy could be worth up to $10-100 million.

It is not certain whether Greece or Italy have taken up the offer or if they ever will. It definitely would put in a strange situation and at the same time for these countries on if they agree or not.
