Jordan Won't Let Gazans In

By Micah Halpern
I've Been Thinking:
The Arab world has a very harsh approach to towards Palestinians.

Since last summer Jordan has not permitted Palestinians from Gaza to pass through Jordan. For the past several years Egypt has not permitted the movement of Gazans.

The most ironic element of the story is that while Israel is permitting more and more Palestinians exit and transport over Israel, they can't leave because they have no place to go. Jordan will not let them in. Because of Jordan, Gazans are stuck in Gaza.

The reasons should be obvious. Gazans are thought to be terrorists and affiliated with Hamas.

Gazans who are attempting to go to work, to the hospital, to the university, cannot go even when the destination is Jordan. A Jordanian university may accept a student from Gaza, but that same student will not be able to attend the university because of the Jordanian law.

This is a problem. It is not a problem caused by Israel.
