Petition protesting European's grant of refugee rights to Palestinian terrorists
Just found this on the Simon Wiesenthal website (www.wiesenthal.com):
The Simon Wiesenthal Center has officially protested to the heads of state of Italy, Spain, Belgium, Ireland, Greece and Portugal for hosting the 13 Palestinian militants involved in the Church of the Nativity standoff. These terrorists have been taken in by the welcoming countries on humanitarian grounds and have been granted privileges given to new refugees.
The 13 Palestinians include the leader of the radical Hamas group, with others belonging to the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades and Fatah. These terrorist groups are responsible for carrying out numerous attacks on Israeli soldiers and civilians. The government of Israel has said that these hostages have "blood on their hands."
For a full list of Palestinian homicide/suicide bombings since Arafat and the Palestinians chose terrorism instead of peace, see the Palestine page. Many of the 13 Palestinian terrorists now being hosted by the Europeans were directly involved in those bombings.
Please read and sign the petition below. Terrorists should not be allowed to have refugee rights. Here's the petition:
I am protesting the decision by your country to host and grant refugee status to the Palestinian militant/militants involved in the Church of the Nativity standoff. These militant/militants are members of terrorist organizations that have carried out numerous attacks on Israeli soldiers and civilians. With antisemitism on the rise throughout Europe, the treatment of these international terrorists as refugees endorses Jew hatred and presents an additional danger to communities already under attack.
