Palestinian “refugee”: Our “houses may be better than your house back home”

Katie HopkinsShillman Fellow

I am pro-Israel, but sometimes I am criticized for not showing the Palestinian side. So I went to a refugee camp in Bethlehem to listen to learn what it was like.

There, I talked to Mustafa, who freely admitted that this place is nothing like our idea of a typical refugee camp. They have WiFi, washing machines, even air conditioning... 

The original 1948 tents and makeshift shelters were replaced by concrete buildings in the 1960s, built by the UN — a development Mustafa says was originally resisted by residents.

His family has lived here for generations, and Mustafa says that when he has children of his own one day, he will "teach them how to be good refugees."

The million plus Jews who were evicted from Muslim countries in 1948-1951 moved to other countries, and they didn’t look back or whine about their ‘right of return’. They built new lives without any UN help. The Arabs who left Israel after their failed war of annihilation against the new state of Israel should follow their example. And in fact, many have, as this interview by Katie Hopkins shows. Just get over it and make a new life where you are and determine to live in peace with all your neighbors. There is no other way to peace.

Perhaps these guys should just convert to Judaism if they really want to live like normal human beings.
Cast aside the dogma of Islam and become members of the human race.

Something I am unclear on here is wether this guy (or his grandfather) is claiming displacement by Israel or by King Hussein of The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Most of the “Palestinians” in Samaria “the west bank” are of the second sort (which is part of the reason why they don’t get along all that well and do not co-ordinate effort with the groups in Gaza or the Lebanese diaspora). It does seem that the UN are most sympathetic with the group that were exiled and displaced by the Jordanians.

Do you remember that scene in Lawrencw of Arabia where people were shot for drinking out of someone else’s well? Nothing has changed. Israel prevails because because their avowed enemies haven’t got a nickle’s worth of cohesion. It is (mostly) white liberals in the west that keep their cause alive , viable, and well funded…….the Prussians have every bit (and then some) of a humdinger grievance….but nobody cares……nothing is sacred if nobody cares.
