Palestinians Condemn Arabs while Asking for Arab Money

(Gatestone Institute) Khaled Abu Toameh - The Palestinians are incensed with Saudi Arabia and other Arab states for agreeing to attend the U.S.-led conference in Bahrain to help the Palestinians build a prosperous and vibrant society. Their strong condemnations of the Arab states that attended the conference are an indication of the disdain in which the Palestinians hold Arab leaders and governments. The largest Palestinian faction, Fatah, headed by Mahmoud Abbas, urged Arabs to stage demonstrations in front of Bahrain's embassies in their capitals. The Palestinian strategy was to incite the Arab masses against their leaders and governments. As the Palestinians were condemning Arabs for agreeing to attend the conference, they were asking the Arabs to give them $100 million each month to help them "face political and financial pressure" from Israel and the U.S. The Palestinians may soon discover that their Arab brothers have priorities that supersede the Palestinians' everlasting financial self-immolation, priorities such as the Iran threat and their own new economic uncertainty. The decision of six Arab states to attend the Bahrain conference despite the Palestinian boycott call shows that the Arabs have chosen to endorse a new direction - one that will leave the Palestinians to fend for themselves in a hell of their own making.
