The Palestinians No One Talks About

Fascinating insight into the plight of Palestinians living in Arab countries.  A free people? A citizen of those countries? No and no.

From the Gatestone Institute-
The international community seems to have forgotten that Palestinians live not only in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, but also in a number of Arab countries, especially Syria, Jordan and Lebanon.
Western journalists covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict regularly focus on the "plight" of Palestinians who are affected by Israeli security policies, while ignoring what is happening to Palestinians in neighboring Arab countries.
These journalists, for example, often turn a blind eye to the daily killings of Palestinians in Syria and the fact that Palestinians living in Lebanon and other Arab countries are subjected to Apartheid and discriminatory laws.
A Palestinian who is shot dead after stabbing an Israeli soldier in Hebron receives more coverage in the international media than a Palestinian woman who dies of starvation in Syria.
And it goes on and on.  Read The Palestinians No One Talks About

How Israelis commemorate terror victims

The video commentary says it all.  The video was provided by Women in Green and was made at a park in Israel dedicated to the three boys murdered by Hamas in 2014.  You will not hear cries for revenge, instead you will see people celebrating life.
