The Hard Way Home

My big brother Paul’s new documentary on the terrrible plight of Iraqi refugees has been released. Paul says’s he is “arguing that helping the refugees is not just a humanitarian cause,
it’s critical to national security. These 2 million refugees are the
bulk of the educated middle class of Iraq. If they collapse into
poverty and continue to fail to send their children to school, Iraq
will remain wrecked for a generation, and there will be a new vast pool
of semi-educated, angry and hopeless refugees in the Middle East
alongside the Palestinians.”

The documentary, and issue, is being picked up in a number of places including:
