The Palestinian president says he is ready to take in Palestinian refugees fleeing Syria's civil war.
Mahmoud Abbas says he has asked U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon to help in bringing the refugees to the Palestinian territories. This could include the West Bank, where Abbas governs, or the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip. The request was reported Wednesday by the official Wafa news agency. It follows an attack by Syrian warplanes against a Palestinian refugee camp in Damascus. The statement says there are 450,000 Palestinian refugees living in 10 camps in Syria.
Look, I know this is a 'human rights' issue but refugees are a "final status" matter.
Would Hillary and State consider this a "provocative act"?
