Palestinians reject Iftar meals offered by UAE

Iftar at Al Aqsa July 17 2013 (Saeed Qaq)

There are probably none more able than Palestinians to answer the chronic question “Why aren’t the Arab & Muslim countries doing more to help the Palestinians?” This article answers it very well & succinctly. Those governments are on the side of oppression, including by Israel of the Palestinians. They have the same interests as Israel in suppressing popular movements for democracy, equality, justice. So of course they give little more than lip service & ignore the needs & demands of Palestinians for active assistance. Those regimes saw the Arab Spring uprisings with the same hatred & horror as Israel sees Palestinians. Class is always an essential element in politics, including the politics of war, occupation, & genocide.
