Iraqis Are Raping Palestinians
By Micah Halpern

Thursday April 26, 2007

I've Been Thinking:

To understand the status of the "Palestinian Cause" in the rest of the Arab world, take a look at the status of Palestinians in Iraq.

For months Palestinians have been attacked and even forced out of Baghdad. Now, in a city named Ramadi, the capital of the Anbar Province (about 60 miles west of Baghdad), Palestinians are being threatened, intimidated and beaten.

Ahmed Raki, a 43-year-old Palestinian father of three lives in Ramadi.
He described how "[t]wo girls from our community were raped last week by militants who told them that it was a message to the Palestinians in Anbar to leave the area."

Ahmed Muffitlak, a spokesman for a Palestinian aid group gave this report:
"At least 17 families have fled Ramadi after militants gave them a week to leave their homes or become the next victims of violence in Iraq."

Anbar is a Sunni province!
Palestinians in Iraq are being attacked by Sunnis!

I am not drawing parallels.
I am not arguing about better or worse.
I am trying to show the status of the "Palestinian Cause" even amongst Sunni and al Qaeda activists.
