The Action Group for Palestinians in Syria now counts 2,771 Palestinians killed since the start of the Syrian civil war. 100 were killed in March alone.

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.

In January 2013, Mahmoud Abbas bragged that he chose to let the Palestinians die rather than enter his territories.

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.

  • Excellent. Thanks for bringing this forward.

  • Amazing that the same agencies that messed up all those years ago haven’t realised that yet.

    Abbas’ contention that Palestinians lives don’t matter speaks volumes of this obsession with the lies they’ve been filling themselves with and spreading to the world…

    Where are now our leftist “useful idiots” and all those boat-niks who protest and throw stones at jews everywhere in Europe chanting “Palestine Palestine” every time Israel defends itself and its citizen??? Have we seen any stone thrown at the Syrians who murdered them?? I haven’t.

    I guess we can change the Golda Meir quote to
    When the Palestinians love their people more than they hate Jews there will be peace.
