Are the Palestinians Suffering an Apartheid?

Yes, they totally are. They are suffering an apartheid in Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan.
The only reason they are not suffering an apartheid also in Egypt it’s because they retreated from the Gaza Strip, which still suffers due to Hamas.
Israel have been accused of apartheid by truly apartheid Arab nations.
If you think Gaza is suffering apartheid, you really should visit Lebanon’s refugee camps this time of the year. You will find it lovely.
The Palestinians are forbidden to work in 70 occupations in Lebanon, to have citizenship and to own property. Lebanon thinks that by improving Palestinians’ welfare, it will fortify Israel instead.
This is a vision shared by the Arab League in general: the more the Palestinians suffer, the better. This is why they stay forever refugees in Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan, and UNRWA (the special UN group dedicated to help the refugees) doesn’t give a single fuck.
The Arab League denies the Palestinian refugees their right to have citizenship in their countries:
“(…) the naturalization law would not be applicable to Palestinians living in the (Saudi Arabia’s) Kingdom as the Arab League has instructed that Palestinians living in Arab countries should not be given citizenship to avoid dissolution of their identity and protect their right to return to their homeland.” (Arab News/2004)
Surprise, surprise! To keep one eternally a refugee just to make a case in point is a HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION. Article 15, if you are that curious.
Yet no one protests against this use of Palestinians as a geopolitical advantage.
Meanwhile, Palestinian refugees suffer in Syria. According to Syrian Law, any Arab can be a Syrian citizen… except Palestinians.
Palestinians can’t own property even if they reside in Syria and have plenty of money. Due to the Syrian Civil War, Palestinian refugees are once again displaced, and some even left the country.
And the Palestinian refugees suffer in Jordan. This is a particular case because they actually offer Palestinians citizenship. But, it’s actually bait-and-switch!
Darwish Qawasma, a Palestinian who moved to Jordan since he was only two months old, revealed in an interview that a Jordanian official told him: “I have orders from Minister of Interior Eid al-Fayez that we treat Palestinians in Jordan as Palestinians only.”
Just to be clear, his father and older brother served in the Jordan Army for years. He isn’t a normal refugee “displaced by the war”. His family moved in 1950 to Jordan and yet he had to hear he was “a Palestinian mercenary and a spy.”
In 1952, UNRWA director of operations Alexander Galloway told the world the truth:
The Arab states do not want to solve the refugee problem. They want to keep it as an open sore, as an affront to the United Nations, and as a weapon against Israel. Arab leaders don’t give a damn whether the refugees live or die.
Why doesn’t the world care about these blatant abuses against the Palestinians? Because it doesn’t involve Jews!
So, we have to address to the real apartheid against the Palestinians: the UNRWA/Arab League’s Bantustans!
