005 – False Hopes

(under construction)

The Muslim world refuses to take the Palestinians Arabs in. They do this so that the Palestinian problem would fester and overwhelm Israel.

…the fifth factor was the call by the Arab governments to the inhabitants of Palestine to evacuate it (Palestine) and leave for the bordering Arab countries. Since 1948, it is we who have demanded the return of the refugees, while it is we who made them leave. We brought disaster upon a million Arab refugees by inviting them and bringing pressure on them to leave. We have accustomed them to begging…we have participated in lowering their morale and social level…Then we exploited them in executing crimes of murder, arson and throwing stones upon men, women and children…all this in the service of political purposes…

— Khaled el-Azm, Syrian prime minister after the 1948 War, in his 1972 memoirs, published in 1973..

The Muslim world is using the Palestinian Arabs as a ploy. So far it is working. In 1948, much of the world supported Israel. Now much of the world blames Israel.

To expect the Arabs to take in the Palestinians is a False Hope

They have set up protocols which demand that no Arab state naturalize any Palestinian at all.  The official reason is to maintain their claim on Palestine.  They are condemned to be a stateless people.

In 1950, the UN set up the United Nations Relief and Works Agency as a “temporary” relief effort for Palestinian refugees. Former UNRWA director Ralph Galloway stated eight years later that, “the Arab states do not want to solve the refugee problem. They want to keep it as an open sore, as a weapon against Israel. Arab leaders do not give a damn whether Arab refugees live or die.” The only thing that has changed since then is the number of Palestinians cooped up in these prison camps.

In Fact, We can expect the Muslim World to resist any Solution

The Muslim states will thwart any effort that does not include the return of so many Palestinian Arabs as to destroy Israel.

It is more than just the Muslim states.  Many Palestinians Arab refugees insist on the right of return, and will not give it up – though far less are this strident than will admit it publicly.

I say Muslim states, because I doubt if any non-Arab Muslim states will help either.

The Palestinian problem, if it is to be solved, must look outside the Arab world to find a solution.

So who would accept them, then?
