Palestinian Refugees vs. Syrian Refugees

Reader comment on item: Middle East Provocations and Predictions

Submitted by Robert (United States), Oct 6, 2015 at 12:13

It is Europe and North Africa which essentially created the Jewish Refugees and Palestinian Refugees (indirectly, "thanks" to the Holocaust).

And yet, it has created the special status of the "eternal" Palestinian "refugee" 9throughout the generations).

Now let's see how "liberal," "humanitarian," "better-than-Israel" will handle its vast influx of Arab, Muslim, and non-European "immigrants," or "migrants" on its doorsteps?

Will the double-standard - giving Palestinians preferential treatment as the "innocent" and "opperred victims" remain?

Is the "humiliated" Palestinian, for example," any "better" than the "humiliated" Syrian?

There is the following difference here: the Palestinans are "humiliated" ny the Jews/Israelis; the Syrians are humiliated by their own Muslim Sunnis and Shia, and now Christian Orthodox "Crusaders."


How this will unfold, is a complex question difficult to answer. But, once more, things are looking better for Israel while the Palestinians keep shooting themselves in the foot, hoping to regain the "rock" in the vicinity of which Muhammad allegedly ascended to heaven.
