The Daily Beast: “Palestinians refugees from Syria—known as PRS—are the shadow refugees of a four-year crisis with no end in sight. They are flat-out barred from entering any of Syria’s neighbors other than Turkey. If they do find a way in, they’re rejected by humanitarian organizations, banned from refugee camps, and face deportation back into Syria’s nightmare.
“Legally there’s nowhere for this besieged population to go. There’s a sense that they’ll try anything to get somewhere,” says Adam Coogle, the Human Right Watch researcher in Jordan. “The only thing they can do is try to stay off the radar, wait for the conflict in Syria to end and go back, or try to make a very, very dangerous journey.
Syrians have gone through hell. But the Palestinians—they’re not even in their own country, so life is even worse,” says UNRWA spokesman Christopher Gunness. “If you can imagine that.”
Opinion: Palestinians are not welcome as citizens in any Arab country. The reasons are not as complex as those who want a Jewish state to disappear would like us to believe.
The entire Israeli/Palestinian conflict can be summed up in a quote from one of the most vile anti-Semites of the last generation:
“We plan to eliminate the state of Israel and establish a purely Palestinian state. We will make life unbearable for Jews by psychological warfare and population explosion. We Palestinians will take over everything, including all of Jerusalem”. —Yasser Arafat, 1996
There has never been a plan for peace from the Arab world.
These mostly Jordanian peoples who were left stranded in the area after the 1967 war were not welcome as citizens in any of the surrounding 6.7 million square miles of land given to Arabs, leaving them as a constant irritant to peace.
But let’s back up;
In 1947, the Arab world rejected the United Nations Partition Plan that would have created an Arab state and a Jewish state side by side.
In early May, 1948 the British Mandate over Israel ended. Prior to Israel’s statehood announcement, approximately 700,000 of 900,000 Arab refugees were warned of a pending war. The Arabs were advised to flee the area, for they might be mistaken for Israelis.
Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Said declared, “We will smash the country with our guns and obliterate every place the Jews seek shelter in. The Arabs should conduct their wives and children to safe areas until the fighting has died down.”
Israel was born on May 14, 1948 and was attacked on the same day by Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria. After the war, Egypt controlled the Gaza Strip and its more than 200,000 inhabitants, but refused to allow the Palestinians into Egypt.
The Israelis won the first of many divine victories.
The Arab leaders of these so-called Palestinian people could have had a state inside Israel at any time over the last 67 years, but instead put forth impossible demands, including:
- Unwillingness to acknowledge Israel’s right to exist
- Israeli’s must stop building houses in their own capital
- The West Bank (including east Jerusalem/Temple Mount) must be declared a Jew-free state
- A Jew-free corridor between Judea and Gaza
- A demand to allow 5 to 13 million refugees back into Israel (right of return)
The Arab/Israel conflict will eventually lead to war that will end in total defeat of the Psalm 83 alliance, Obadiah 1:18.
