By the end of 2017 there could as many as 3 million refugees living throughout Europe (Calamur). This is an enormous change for the population, especially for states taking in larger number of refugees or states with already low populations. To help illustrate, as of September, the Syrian refugees represent 0.11% of the European population while they represent 25% of the Lebanon population (Bajenkal).

Without the cease of the civil war there will be continued turmoil and death (Rohr). When the civil war is ended, Syrians can return home and rebuild their country with the help of the United Nations. This is the only long term solution that will keep the refugees from leaving Syria. If it gets to it, and all non-Islamic State Syrians leave, the country will be ruled by the Islamic State which will only provide them with more resources and capabilities which would affect the entire world. If there is not an end to the civil war we will all witness a huge change within
