Outrage!

Reader comment on item: Bush Promotes a Palestinian "Right of Return"

Submitted by Peter J. Herz (United States), Jan 14, 2008 at 11:48

This is outrageous! The USA should be pressing for the countries of first asylum to naturalize the Falastin Arabs instead. So far, the only Middle Eastern countries where the vicitms and offspring of the 1948 Palestinian displacement are granted citizenship are Jordan, the PA, and Israel itself. The USA has given passport-holding, voting-rights citizenship to more Palestinians and their offspring than any seven Arab states outside Jordan and the PA put together.

Surely in an era when Manmohan Singh, born in Lahore, and Pervez Musharaf, born in Delhi, can repsectively be the presidents of India and Pakistan, countries like Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait can naturalize the descendents of "anNakhba" en masse.

Fie on them for not doing so!
