Mahmoud Abbas: We Should Let Palestinians in Syria Die
Many of these Palestinians could have been saved if it wasn’t for the deep desire by Arabs to destroy Israel – and a conscious decision by their “leader” – Mahmoud Abbas.
Abbas told a group of Egyptian journalists in Cairo late Wednesday that Ban contacted Israel on his behalf.

Abbas said Ban was told Israel “agreed to the return of those refugees to Gaza and the West Bank, but on condition that each refugee … sign a statement that he doesn’t have the right of return (to Israel).”
“So we rejected that and said it’s better they die in Syria than give up their right of return,” Abbas told the group.
Abbas said this in Arabic, without any shame. Because his audience knows that the real purpose of the “right to return” is to destroy the Jewish State, and has nothing to do with “Palestinian rights.”
Since the escalation of the Yarmouk crisis in recent weeks with ISIS taking over part of the camp, the Arab world and the media have shone a small spotlight on the area where so many Palestinian Arabs have been living. But they won’t say anything about how Abbas had the chance to save them, and probably still can.
The Action Group for Palestinians in Syria is an offshoot of the Palestinian Return Centre. The major NGO dedicated to helping Palestinians subscrines to the same twisted, sickening philosophy that Mahmoud Abbas does – they only want to save them if they remain useful pawns to destroy Israel.
We have heard nothing negative about this outrageous statement by Mahmoud Abbas from Amnesty International, Oxfam, or Human Rights Watch. In fact, those groups purposefully misinterpret international law to justify Abbas’ contention that there is a legal “right to return” for Palestinians – and their own antipathy towards Israel ensure that they will not disagree with Abbas’ perverted morality that it is better for Palestinians to die than to give up a “right” that is literally nonexistent and that was created for the sole purpose of destroying Israel. (UN resolution 194 deliberately does not call it a “right” and the UN itself interpreted the resolution far more narrowly than Israel haters do today.)
It is scandalous that Mahmoud Abbas has not been called out for his despicable words that sealed the death sentence for thousands. And the silence from “human rights” organizations speaks volumes about their real desire to save lives when their pet Palestinians literally and explicitly prefer to see their people die.
