Reader comment on item: Feeling Optimistic about Israel and the Emirates

Submitted by Kepha (United States), Aug 16, 2020 at 06:52

The Gulf states are full of Falastin Arabs (ageing) and their descendants, who make up a goodly chunk of the work force. I hope one thing that pans out is that these statelss persons, if resident in the UAE, will be made eligible for UAE citizenship. The plight of the Falastin Arabs has long been the Arab and other Muslim street's excuse for vandalizing or burning US diplomatic offices; yet the USA has given complete, no-questions-asked citizenship to more victims of the 1947 nakhbar and their descendants than any seven Arabic-sepaking states (exclusive of Jordan and Israel itself) put together.
