Palestinians Reject Iftar Meals Because, Palestinians

I think this next story illustrates the palestinian proclivity to bit off their noses to spite their face.

Perhaps that why is they are “not hungry”, come to think of it.

This palestinian REALLY does not seem hungry

Palestinians have launched a campaign with the hashtag “We are not hungry” on the social media, calling for the boycott of Iftar or the fast-breaking meals offered by the UAE at al-Aqsa mosque in protest at the policies of some Persian Gulf Arab states.

The United Arab Emirates offers Iftar meals to the worshipers at al-Aqsa mosque annually during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, but this year it was met with Palestinian rejection.

Palestinian activists in Jerusalem al-Quds attributed their rejection to the stance of some Gulf Arab states, including the UAE, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, towards the Palestinian cause and their complicity with the Israeli regime, citing the participation of Bahraini and Emirati teams in the 101st Giro d’Italia cycling competition which kicked off in Israel.

Earlier this month, the Palestinian Olympic Committee (POC) said the participation of Bahrain and the UAE in the race is a “disgrace”.

I would love to see them launch a ““We are not angry” campaign. But the chances of that are about as slim as they are bound to become if they keep this up.
