Journalist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown has called Arab countries “filthy rich”, saying that she “loathes” them more than any Western government. Ms Alibhai-Brown claimed countries bordering Afghanistan have so far failed to pull their weight to support refugees escaping the Taliban. The slamming came after a new terror threat from ISIS was announced yesterday, which targets people at Kabul airport trying to flee from Afghanistan.
Speaking on Jeremy Vine on Five programme, Ms Alibhai-Brown said: “I also want to say this-all these filthy rich Arab countries
“Who sit and watch every time there’s a crisis.
“They are underpopulated.”
She went on: “There are places that are under-populated.
“I can tell you I loathe them more than I’ve ever loathed any Western government.
“Now they have been shocking through the centuries.”
The slapdown came after the US has warned crowds trying to access Kabul airport to leave the area, as Britain, Australia, and New Zealand were alerted of a terrorist attack.
All four countries asked that people no longer attempt to travel to the airport.
However, countless refugees still remain in Kabul trying to flee, unaware of this terror threat.
Muslim countries have shut doors on the refugees from Afghanistan.
Data from the UN Refugee Agency showed Iran already hosts 3.38 million refugees from Afghanistan.
Pakistan, being the host of the largest numbers of Afghan refugees, have simply refused to accept any more refugees this time.

According to the UNHCR database, Pakistan has 1.4 million registered Afghan refugees.
Both Prime Minister Imran Khan and Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi have responded to the crisis with “we can’t take more”.
So far, only Iran has so far fallen into line with the guidelines from the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and set up tents at its shared border with Afghanistan to welcome refugees.
The UAE and Saudi Arabia have agreed to let only 5,000 refugees use their countries as a humanitarian corridor to reach any third country, and only following pressure from the United States – which latest data has shown to have opened its doors to over 50,000 refugees.
