Ongoing Arab Discrimination and Abuse against Palestinians since 1948

While Palestinians condemn the so-called 1948 nakba (catastrophe), few will mention, never mind condemn the expulsion of 400,000 Palestinians from Kuwait in the early 1990s.

While Palestinians condemn the so-called 1948 nakba (catastrophe), few will mention, never mind condemn the expulsion of 400,000 Palestinians from Kuwait in the early 1990s.

Libya:

1994-5: Expelled 30,000 Palestinians, dismissed many from their jobs and confiscated their houses Arab countries refused to take in the new refugees. Hundreds were stranded in the desert or the sea. Eventually Libya allowed some to stay but kept threatening to expel them again. In the end about 15,000 were forced to go to Arab countries they had documents for, Gulf countries, and Western nations.

2011: Palestinians were forced to pay a special tax of $1550.

2012: Many Palestinians lost their homes as properties were claimed by others in the wake of the revolution and the collapse of the judicial system.

Iraq: Early 1950s: Expelled striking Palestinian workers, along with Saudi Arabia and Libya..

2005: After Saddam Hussein lost power, Palestinians in Iraq were subjected to abduction, hostage-taking, killing and torture from armed groups. Politicians derided them. About 15,000 were forced to leave Iraq. Thousands were stranded in camps in the desert between Iraq and Syria, where no Arab country would allow them to enter.

Qatar:

1994: Refused to grant Palestinians work visas.

Syria: 1970:  Palestinians cannot vote, cannot run for office, cannot own farmland, cannot own more than one property..

2005-2008: Syria did not allow thousands of Palestinian Arab refugees fleeing from Iraq to enter the country.

2012-today: Some 2000 Palestinians killed so far in Syria’s war. About 50 have starved to death as forces cut off all food and water to the Yarmouk camp.

  1. Joe Khoury says:

    very good summary and explains the complexity of the Palestinian problem that exists today.

  2. Interesting that nobody wants them. Yet only Israel is blamed. I wonder what that is about? Could it have something to do with the UN having so many Arab votes?

In all the years (and this week it’s exactly 14 years) since our daughter was murdered, we have not found a single Arabic-language post, article, tweet or speech condemning that attack in the center of Jerusalem or the killings.

Everyone is angry at the ongoing Arab terrorism, but what does murdering a baby have to do with protecting Jewish lives or furthering Jewish settlement in the Land of Israel?
