Palestinians don't want Palestinian refugees from Syria

We talked today on the show about the suffering of Palestinians who find no aid from their Arab brothers from Arab countries, some of the richest in the world. Now they won't aid their own who are refugees...

ISRAEL TODAY reports --

The Palestinian governments in Gaza (Hamas) and the so-called "West Bank" (Mahmoud Abbas) have refused to take Palestinian refugees from war-ridden Syria.
Recently, the UN Works and Relief Agency (UNWRA), which was created to handle the issue of Palestinian Arab refugees, asked the Palestinian governments to allow their brothers from Syria to enter.

Palestinian Arabs in Syria have had to flee their refugee camps under attack from Syrian rebels who view the Palestinians as supporters of dictator Bashar Assad.
Gaza-based Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh refused to take the refugees on the grounds that doing so would set a dangerous precedent for more Palestinian refugees to come to the Gaza Strip. He declared that these refugees should return to Israel and not to the Gaza Strip.
