We'll ethnically cleanse a place for you…

Genocidal dictators clearly have a soft spot for the Palestinians. Sudan's president Omar al-Bashir has offered to take in Palestinian refugees who are stranded on Iraq's borders with Syria and Jordan, their fortunes having declined since the fall of Saddam, who championed the Palestinian cause in a bid to court popularity with the Arab world. Bashir probably figures he can use them to bolster the ranks of his death squads.

And isn't it funny how all the Arab governments of the Middle East are happy to turn a blind eye to the plight of Palestinians unless it's perceived to be Israel's fault?
