"A grave injustice is being committed against the Palestinian people -- perhaps among the greatest in their history. Thousands are being systematically robbed of their citizenship, made stateless once more by a hard-hearted government that pays lip service to peace and the two-state solution, but which seems determined to undermine both". Thus commences an article published in the American Thinker recently, http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/07/palestinian_rights_a_warning.html
Are we "bashing Isarael again? No -- the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, which has had a long and uneasy relationship with its Palestinian majority. Now, it is cynically claiming that it has the Palestinians' best interests at heart, the regime of King Abdullah II has begun removing the citizenship of Palestinians with roots in the West Bank. There have been no discussion with the Palestinians involved.
Article 15 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights reads:
(1) Everyone has the right to a nationality.
(2) No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his nationality nor denied the right to change his nationality.
And the world once again, has been silent; that includes the world's leading human rights organizations. The front page of Amnesty International's website features an appeal for Israel to cooperate with the UN's "independent" fact-finding mission on Gaza, but nothing on Jordan. Human Rights Watch, which recently bashed Israel for the benefit of donors in Saudi Arabia, has yet to react.
Hypocracy continues, the morality of the world degenerates further. The "Big Lie" continues to be propagated in mutated forms.
