Palestinian Arabs go to the Gulf states as guest workers anyway - but that is all that they are allowed to be. They still have to return to Gaza or the West Bank at the end of their work contracts. The Palestinian Arabs are nor wanted in those places because they are so far ahead in their thinking they are bound to be a threat to the reactionary monarchies if permitted to settle there in numbers.Jim the Moron wrote: ↑Mon Jul 29, 2019 7:18 amTrue enough. Muslim entities tend to not aid their co-religionists elsewhere with settlement opportunities, rather preferring to encourage (and fund) them to attack Israel.neverfail wrote: ↑Mon Jul 29, 2019 7:04 amThe reactionary monarchies of the Arabian peninsula?

The UAE and Saudi Arabia, e.g., would certainly be appealing places for non-militant Arabs in Palestine to relocate, if they would have them.neverfail wrote: ↑Sun Jul 28, 2019 10:17 pmif other Arab states were even remotely appealing places to settle into, don't you think that Palestinians would have done so en masse already?Sertorio wrote: ↑Sun Jul 28, 2019 3:01 amThe price to be paid for peace is not a Palestinian state, it is giving Israel sovereignty over the whole of Palestina. Hard on Palestinians? Sure, but not harder than it was for Germans to leave East Prussia. I have no doubt that Palestinians would easily find a new home in any of the neighbouring Arab countries. But they would have to integrate with the peoples of those countries, rather than building refugee camps.
In particular, the repressive/oppressive Wahhabi theocratic regime of Saudi Arabia would not be acceptable to them.
Were I one of them I would want a secular state of our own. More so because I would have no ties with the Arabian peninsula but would retain ancestral memories of how my people lost homes, farmland and other property when pushed out by Jewish immigrants at the time that the state of Israel came into being. As a matter of justice I would at the very least want that confiscated property back.
