Palestinians in America

Reader comment on item: Count Palestine Refugees?
in response to reader comment: Like we need more terrorists in America

Submitted by John Philips (Japan), Jun 13, 2012 at 01:25

Palestinians in America have done very well for themselves and are a very successful immigrant group. We could use more of them. Personally I'd rather solve the problem by the United States taking all the Jews, but we don't always get what we wish for, and I'd take Palestinians as second best.

As for terrorists, the United States did OK by the Irish, despite all the paranoia about the Fenian Menace until they got their own state. AAMOF there were Jews who supported terrorist groups before Israel was created. Terrorism is not in Palestinian blood, it is in the nature of desperate people without a home. Stop pretending that all Arabs look alike, and give the Palestinians a place to live. Until you do this problem will fester forever. Maybe you live in the US and you don't have to deal with the problem directly, and can fantasize about solutions that will never happen because they can't happen. Let's deal with the reality of the problem.
