Countries like Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and the UAE denied asylum to refugees. However, Saudi Arabia offered to build 200 mosques for them in Germany.
The precise number of mosques is one mosque for every 100 refugees who entered Germany.
Even though the Gulf Arab states did not provide asylum, they provided homes to 500,000 Syrians who are already there as workers.
An estimated amount of $900 million was given by rich individuals to maintain the refugee camps round the Syrian border.
The biggest concern of Gulf states is that if they allow refugees to enter, there is a chance that Syrians loyal to Bashar al-Assad enter as well.
Another concern deals with the change in demographics. There is fear that foreign nationals could outnumber the citizens.
The offer of Saudi Arabia to build mosques has to be reviewed by German federal authorities.
