Jordan Strips Its Palestinians Of Citizenship

Here's yet another example of the Arab's 'compassion for their Palestinian brothers'- the Jordanian government is stripping its Palestinian Arabs of their Jordanian citizenship:


Jordanian authorities have started revoking the citizenship of thousands of Palestinians living in Jordan to avoid a situation in which they would be "resettled" permanently in the kingdom, Jordanian and Palestinian officials revealed on Monday. {...}

"Many Palestinians living in Jordan are convinced that the Jordanian authorities are trying to squeeze them out," said Ismail Jaber, a West Bank lawyer who has been living in the kingdom for nearly 20 years. "There is growing discontent and uncertainty among Palestinians here."

The Jordanian minister said that the Palestinian leadership in the West Bank had been notified of the decision to revoke the Jordanian citizenship of Palestinians.

A PA official in Ramallah expressed deep concern over Jordan's latest move and said that it would only worsen the conditions of Palestinians living in the kingdom. The official said that PA President Mahmoud Abbas raised the issue with King Abdullah II on a number of occasions, but the Jordanians have refused to retract.


A little background...Jordan is over 70% Palestinian, but is ruled by the minority Bedouin Hashemite monarchy. Most of the 'Palestinians' who inhabit Judea and Samaria ( AKA the West Bank) were Jordanians who were deliberately resettled there after Jordan illegally attempted to annex Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem in an attempt to colonize and Arabize the area after its Jewish resident were ethnically cleansed in 1948.

When Israel retook the area after Jordan launched an attack on Israel as part of the Six Day War, Jordan passed laws reaffirming the citizenship of the Arabs living in Judea and Samaria..and then refused to allow its own citizens back into Jordan. No, I'm not joking. For years, no Jordanian citizen living in Judea or Samaria was allowed to enter Jordan without special permission, and often only by depositing a hefty cash bond with the Jordanian government to ensure their return.

Jordan also holds the record for killing and expelling the most Palestinians of any country in the Middle East,(Israel isn't even close) a distinction it won during 'Black September' in 1970. And these are the same people who talk about Israeli apartheid and 'justice for the Palestinians' with a straight face!

Needless to say, the UN and the various so-called human rights groups won't even mention this .

But imagine what would happen if Israel decided to remove it's non-citizen Arab residents from its territory?

Call this just one more piece of evidence that the entire Palestinian refugee is one of the biggest scams ever pulled in history. The Arabs couldn't care less about them.

It's about the Jews. It always has been.

Ironic given that this would be a clear violation of 4th Geneva convention. Not that anyone thinks that the convention applies to any state other than Israel.
