News and views on Israel, Zionism and the war on terrorism.

November 27, 2002

These are some friends...

Remember the terrorists who sought refuge in the Church of the Nativity, Bethlehem? That was six months ago, in May, 2002. How about this piece of AP news, cited from the Jerusalem Post, November 26, 2002, to remind us about that incident:

The last of a dozen Palestinians exiled to Cyprus in May to end a month long siege of Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity was escorted Monday to Mauritania after months of searching for a willing host.

Abdullah Daoud, 41, was sent to Mauritania because it was the only Arabic-speaking country willing to take him in, his wife, Kifah, said from her home in the Balata refugee camp near Nablus.
...
Israeli authorities have described Daoud as "the most dangerous terrorist," which apparently hampered efforts to secure him asylum in any of the European countries that received the other Palestinians after brief stays in Cyprus.

It turns out, you see, that the Arab countries and their EU-nik friends, who never miss a beat when it comes to denounce our sister-democracy, Israel, hang out a big “Not In My Back Yard” sign, when it comes to actually doing something for their Palestinian-Arab proteges.

What hypocrites!
