Will 2006 be the year that Arabs and Muslims finally start treating Palestinians like human beings? Don’t bet on it. In fact, they enjoy the most rights and privileges in one unduly vilified country. Hint: It starts with and “I”, ends with an “L”, and has and “S-R-A-E” in the middle.
It has long been documented that other Muslim and Arab nations don’t really give a whit about the Palestinians personally. They just want them as a political weapon to use against Israel (read: “the Jews”). Most in refugee camps are kept their by their Syrian, Lebanese, Jordanian, Egyptian and even Palestinian “hosts.”
Now here’s more documentation–coming from leftist, pro-Palestinian “reporter” (term used VERY loosely here) Kevin Sites, of Yahoo. We object to the fact that Yahoo even uses Sites, openly biased and very left-wing on all issues Middle East and probably all issues period. His Yahoo “Kevin Sites in the Hot Zone” reports are openly dedicated to Treasonatrix Barbie, and he links to her far-left group, Civic Worldwide–which hates everything American, Western, Christian, Israeli, Jewish, non-Communist, non-Muslim, etc., and openly aids and abets America’s enemies.
That said, even Sites provides some important quotes in his latest one-sided, sob-story dispatch about Palestinian “refugees” in Lebanon. We beg to differ with his statement about “Palestinians forced to leave their homes after the creation of Israel in 1948.” In fact, Palestinians were urged to stay by Israel, but chose to leave at the insistence of Arab Muslim nations who immediately went to war against Israel. The Palestinians made the wrong gamble, choosing abandonment, and they lost.
And they keep losing, at the hands of their Arab Muslims brethren.
Here are the important quotes that world needs to, yet again, take notice of, from Sites’ piece:
Muna Farid, who just added a third floor to her “refugee camp house” (three floors is not refugee squalor, sorry), told sites this:
The Lebanese government doesn’t treat us like human beings. I can’t begin to describe how sad I am.
Along with employment restrictions, there are also legal codes that prevent Palestinian children from attending Lebanese schools. With their concentration in these refugee ghettos, most Palestinians here live in limbo, caught between the dream of returning to their Palestinian homeland and the nightmare of their current status as non-citizens.
When will Lebanon (and Syria, Jordan, Egypt, and all the other Arab and Muslim nations who house them) absorb Palestinians and allow them the full equal rights that they get in Israel, just like Israel did for the million Jews kicked out of their homes in Arab Muslim countries? Answer: Never. At least, not until Israel and the Jews are wiped off the face of the map.
And then, they’re coming for America and the rest of the West, too.
