Why Is Jordan Keeping Out Palestinian Refugees?

Jordan’s treatment of Palestinian refugees is not uncommon for an Arab country. In the past, Palestinians have also been denied entry into Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt and Libya. Palestinians are being held in tents, with poor sanitary conditions.

More than 1,000 Palestinians who fled from the violence in Syria and were hoping to find temporary shelter in Jordan, have been stranded along the border between Syria and Jordan for the past few weeks. The Jordanian authorities have been refusing to allow them into the kingdom.

The Jordanian authorities have set up a makeshift refugee camp along the border with Syria, where the Palestinians are being held in tents, with poor sanitary conditions.

Jordan’s treatment of Palestinian refugees is not uncommon for an Arab country. Lebanon and Egypt have also refused to grant asylum to the fleeing Palestinians. This is also not the first time that an Arab country keeps Palestinians waiting on the border. In the past, Palestinians have also been denied entry into Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt and Libya.

Arab support for the Palestinians has been largely rhetorical over the past two decades, forcing the Palestinians to become almost entirely dependent on American and EU taxpayers’ money.

Meanwhile, an additional 100,000 Syrians, who have fled their country in the past year, have been permitted to enter Jordan.

    Hypocrites! Condemning Jews for living in what is rightfully their country while they reject their own from the countries they live in. Why are we and Europe paying for this? I wouldn’t be surprised to find out Israel is chipping in too. The culture there is so f*cked up. They deserve to be conquered.

    It’s pretty simple. The Palestinians are the second most hated group in the middle east, right after the Israeli’s. The only reason the receive support (but not too much) from the Arabs is that they’re a useful stick to beat Israel with. If they had any sense they’d realize that and start working with the Israeli’s. If the Arab states ever managed to wipe out Israel the Palestinians would be the next on their list.

    I could care less about any koranimal.
    Stop giving the savages that will kill us in a heartbeat our money. Fucking politicians should be dropped naked into any koranimal country with no money, no phone and a tattoo of muhummad (piss be upon him) on their foreheads.

    This is a political game that has been plaid with the pally’s since they were invented.No arab country will let them in so they can then point to Israel and decry how badly the jooos treat the pally’s.Political pawns that illustrate once again that the arabs hate the jooos more than they love their fellow arabs.This is what happens when your entire philosophy is rooted in hate.The pally’s hate the jooos so much that they fail to see that it’s their arab brothers that keep them living in squalor to fuel more joooo hate.LET THEM ALL ROT.

    The answer is simple, why has any arab state kept them out?

    During the Lebanon war with Israel (aka Hezbollah), you could see Lebanon cities and what outside of the cities? Palestinian camps to keep them out of their cities.
    When Israel started pounded the Gaza strip, what did Egypt do to the Palestanians who broke through the border walls? Started mowing them down like swiss cheese.
    Libya, threw out 90,000 allegedly to bring attention to their plight.
    Jordan doesn’t want them.

    Every government in the region looks at them like the thieves and lowlife culture that they are.

    The only people who will even deal with them are terrorists, kind of like the same situation in the US with the ghettos.

    Theres certain elements culturally bred into lowlifes that no matter what you do to better them….choose to go back to their roots….and unless they want to better themselves should be just wrote off.

    The secular humanistic money pit argument has solved nothing………just look at the POTUS.

    So if the muslim countries don’t want their own anti-semitic Pallies, then why do we have to take them?

    Oh right, because we have an anti-American d’bag Pallie dirtbag squatting in the People’s Houses (note plural)

    IRONY I name you Jordan.

    From whence did the FIRST ‘palistines’ come? Why they came from what is now Jordan.

    How? The day after EVERY AAAAARAB ‘nation’ ATTACKED ISRAEL ON HER BIRTHDAY, one aaaarab prince turned away from the war to take over the brand spanking new territory that was set aside for the aaaarabs. He physically threw everybody else OUT!

    That, boys and girls, is where pallys came from. They are the wretched unwanteds from all over the middle east. Israel is the only country that treats them as humans.

    IT BURNS! MAKE IT STOP!

    Why is Jordan keeping out Palestinian refugees? For the same reason liberals do not invite homeless people and OWS protesters over for dinner.

    The invented population of palestinians is a group of cast offs from neighboring countries. Short version, the ghetto dwellers of Egypt, Lebanon, Saudi and Syria.

    Much like the gypsies of Europe, they were despised for their parasitic lifestyle choices. Only the depraved leftists would find them endearing enough to celebrate their proliferation as they spread like a plague.

    Boy, the Palestinians need their own Eric Holder to sue their arab pals on their behalf. I’d be OK in their taking ours.
