Will Japan accept refugee from that region? Response will be, Japanese sucking teeth expression

-10 ( +7 / -17 )

Sadly, very very few countries will accept Palestinian refugees because of serious security issues. Even countries that support the Palestinian cause don’t want to accept Palestinian refugees. Money yes, refugees no!

Please stay out of it Japan.

She condemned terrorist attacks by Hamas? Yes, of course, that's a given, but what about Israel? Does she even know that Hamas was in part supported by Israel as part of their divide and conquer strategy to counter the PLO/Fatah? U.S. and Israeli officials have often said that this was like playing with fire, and even Yitzhak Rabin admitted it. He tried to bring some semblance of sanity to the region and even received the Nobel Peace Prize but we know what happened to Rabin. Yup the Israeli far right killed him. And sure 'nuff, to let the Palestinian problem fester was only a recipe for a full blown disaster and as always, it's the innocent, both Palestinian and Israeli who suffer and die.

Hamas was in part supported by Israel as part of their divide and conquer strategy..

This seems true of many of those terrorist organisations and terrorist states that inflict huge damages in the world. Look at Taliban... The US supported them initially, and then they became an uncontrollable power.

Happens elsewhere in the world too.

Kamikawa said stability in the Middle East is crucial for Japan, which is highly dependent on crude oil imports from the region and has traditionally maintained friendly relations

That says all:OIL. The crocodile tears and hypocrisy at best!

Japan is now accepting AS MANY Gazan refugees as Qatar, Yemen, Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey COMBINED.

What’s the fuss about?

Aid to Gaza? What they need most is anti air and anti tank missiles.

Maybe your hero Iran can give it to them. Although missiles are cheaper for just causing terrorism.

Palestinians allowed Hamas to operate on the Gaza strip. They have to face what is coming.

Its time this long conflict come to end. Israel will end Hamas. No matter the cost. And the United States will be right there with Israel every step of the way until every last Hamas member is eradicated.

Israel has a claim on the land for over 3500 years.

Israel will fight to the last if they have too to preserve Israel as we now it today.

Days away from a ground assault that will turn Gaza into a living hell.

You go Japan! Don't worry about your own starving homeless elderly, as long as you look good supporting other countries!

My opinion should that be allowed, is to support Israel. Stop sending aid to Gaza terrorists.

Palestinians allowed Hamas to operate on the Gaza strip. They have to face what is coming.

So following your logic.....Israelis allowed the IDF to operate in Israel. They had to face what came?

50% of Gaza Arabs are 18 and under and weren’t born when Hamas took over the Gaza Strip.

Received a message from a Japanese Aid Worker in Southern Gaza stating the appalling terrible conditions people are having to endure. The young children are suffering very badly.

On the advice of the Israelis, the Arabs from the north moved south. I guess no group has exact figures. Those people have no shelter.

Support for the Gaza Arabs does not mean support for Hamas. Collect punishment is not legal.

Israel ordered 1.1 million people in Gaza to move south.

The aid trucks need to be allowed to flow.

Mr Kipling- VERY well said!!

The Gaza Strip needs 500 aid trucks every day.

Lets aid Japanese citizens 1st please.

Palestinians in Gaza are not in any way rebeling against Hamas.

In fact they support massively their hatred of Jews since the cretion of Israel.

Children in Gaza are brainwashed, it is a shame. This shall end by complete eradication of Hamas.

I am all for two states, but never by act of terror.

Israel gave those people ample advance notice to leave, unlike Hamas and its supporters, which murdered 1400 infants, women, children, elderly, disabled--all civilians.

How about sending some aid to Israel?

Hamas and Hezbollah are shooting missiles daily at civilian populations, and Palestinian Arabs are supporting these illegal attacks.
