Video: Who Denies the Palestinians’ Human Rights?

While the PA claims that Israel violates the Arabs' human rights, a new video shows who really does so: their Arab cousins.

The Palestinian Authority often accuses of Israel of mistreating its citizens and abusing their human rights.

A new video created by the FreeMiddleEast.com organization shows that the rights of PA Arabs are indeed being violated…by their Arab cousins in other countries, that is.

Today there are over four million descendants of Arab refugees from the 1948 war, with the vast majority residing in Lebanon, Jordan, and Syria. The video presents the facts, plain and simple:

  • Lebanon does not allow these Arabs to own property. They live in refugee camps and need a permit to leave them
  • Syria will grant citizenship to any Arab except for these descendants of the refugees
  • Jordan has begun to revoke the citizenship of these Arabs

PA leaders have demanded the ‘Right of Return - that as part of a future peace agreement Israel allow millions of Arabs descended from those who fled during the 1948 War of Independence to “return” to the cities in which their grandparents and great-grandparents once lived.

As this video suggests, however, perhaps the ‘right of return’ should be these descendants returning to be treated as human beings by their Arab cousins.
