We reported earlier about horrific pictures of children who drowned trying to escape Syria making the rounds on social media. Today another picture is condemning the world for its inaction:

More from the Daily Mail:
Little Galip, five, and Aylan Kurdi, three, were on an overcrowded dinghy filled with refugees fleeing the war in Syria when it capsized shortly into the crossing to the Greek island of Kos.
Pictures of Aylan’s limp body in the sand and of it being carried by a local gendarme has come to epitomise the crisis engulfing Europe as a tide of humanity flees the horrors in the Middle East.
Another mother was pictured grief-stricken after losing two of her children, aged nine and 11.
Aylan and Galip, who were not wearing lifejackets, did not stand a chance when the boat overturned in the dead of night 30 minutes after it set off from the holiday resort of Bodrum in Turkey.
All 16 passengers were flung into the Mediterranean, and despite the calm water, Galip and Aylan drowned.
Their lifeless bodies, still clad in tiny T-shirts and shorts, washed up on the beach in Bodrum today and boatmen alerted the authorities.
A heartbreaking photograph of a Turkish gendarme cradling one of the boys in his arms emerged shortly after the tragedy and video footage showed the body of the second.
This is a terrible atrocity, but it must be asked where the Muslim world is. With 57 states and trillions of dollars in GDP, no one is willing to do something about Syria?
