Even without that doubling during the 1910s, Syria's population has still increased 10-fold in less than a century.

As to birth rate, it is declining but it is still above replacement levels:

You are forgetting that with dwindling water reserves and resources (and consequently fading topsoil), the regional populations should already be in a long decline.

So don't expect compassion from math-savvy individuals towards Syrian families with lots of children. The most rational syrian families would voluntarily have 1 child per family - they are the ones perhaps worth saving. Compassion is saved for the chimpanzees and gorillas who are getting extinct and not a single humanitarian sheds a single tear about it lately. It is all about the prolific breeders.
