#4 Nope....can't have this. If we sell them land, then they might stop killing Joos (just maybe) and that's a risk we're just not willing to take.

#5 Maybe the "Palestinians" should ask "Why does everybody hate us?"

#6 Well, everywhere the Paleos go, they s--t in their messkits or their hosts punchbowls. The hosts are getting kind of gunshy, so to speak.

Anybody know the story on how Egypt treats their Paleo contingent? It seems that everyone is NIMBY with respect to the Paleos.

#7 Kicked out of Kuwait, persona non grata in Iraq, and forbidden to own land in Lebanon.

But everyone insists the Israelis take them in.

#8 As far as I know, they have never been permitted to own land in Lebanon (from 1948). I seem to recall that they were also prevented from purchasing land, pre-1967, in the West Bank.

I vaguely recall that they were not permitted to enter Egypt proper when Egypt held Gaza.

So this is nothing new, just the same old attitude.

#9 Mummar booted them out as well. The idea is that there is no Palestinian problem unless there are refugees. In all other case refugees eventually become citizens. With the Palestinians the UN is allowing the creation of 3rd generation refugees with the right of return to some place they have never lived. I like the idea, though, maybe being 1/124 Penobscot, I can boot some poor sap off of my tribal lands in Concord, NH.

Saw a group of Palestinians camped out in the site of a demolished building in Alexandria in 1988. They are probably still there. Wonder what it feels like to be everybody's pawn.

#10 One of my friends is a Palestian Christian from Bethlehem. Hamas does not like them, so he felt that it was time for him and his family to R-U-N-N-O-F-T, i.e., leave. Now he has built a good life for his family here, with no worries about getting gunned down by Paleo gunnies or IDF stray rounds.
