Palestinians living in Iraq have been warned that they will be killed by Shia militias unless they leave the country immediately….
Now the Shia militias are stepping up their campaign to drive out Iraq’s 20,000 remaining Palestinians – half the estimated 40,000 living in the country at the start of the war, all of whom were welcomed by Saddam Hussein and provided with housing, money and free education….
“We are sure that all the Palestinians in Iraq are involved in killing the Shia people and they have to pay the price now,” he said. “They lived off our blood under Saddam. We were hungry with no food and they were comfortable with full bellies. They should leave now, or they will have to pay.”
One of these days, the Palestinians are going to understand that the only way they can survive and prosper is to build their own state. The opportunities are there. It’s up to them, unfortunately, they can’t see past their hatred for Israel to seize the opportunities before them. Sad.
