How strange that the Gentleman from the United Arab Emirates should make these comments, if the Arabs were to help their brethren ( and my goodness they have the financial resources) and did not keep them in extreme poverty, then the whole situation would not have escalated as it has. Why did they not build homes for the Palestinians in Lebanon all those years, but let them live like animals in the refugee camps, The orginal land base for the Jews in the said Palestine were BOUGHT by the Jews from the Arabs and the swamps were then changed to arable land. Perhaps they should stop treating their 'brothers and sisters' as pawns and begin to help the whole area grow and thrive together.
