Former Mossad Chief: The Arab World is Sick of the Palestinians


I would tend to believe this, given what I am reading on social media.

The Arab world is sick of the Palestinians, a former Mossad chief declared this week.

And Shabtai Shavit, who was the intelligence agency’s director general from 1989 to 1996, also told the Jewish Telegraph that the Palestinians are dependent on their Arab brethren — despite becoming close to Iran and Turkey.

Mr Shavit said: “The Arabs are sick of the Palestinians. As an example, I remember, many years ago, meeting the Sultan of Oman, Qaboos bin Said, and asking him whether his country was home to any Palestinians. He looked at me and said, ‘none’.

“When he saw that I was surprised, he said, ‘there will never be any Palestinians here in Oman as long as I live’.

I should point out that while I understand why the Arab world would be sick of the so-called palestinian cause, as well as palestinian terrorism and the palestinian leadership’s intransigence and ungratefulness, it is unfair to paint all the palestinian Arab people this way. We see many are disgusted with their leadership and it’s threats towards their host states.

A better approach would be to help towards a resolution of the conflict by actually offering to take more in – at least those who want a better life and do not insist on a so-called ‘right of return.’
