Hamas Refuses to Accept Palestinian Refugees from Syria to Spite Israel

Just remember, the Israelis don’t care about the suffering of Palestinian Arabs. But Muslims care deeply about their suffering. That suffering is the only reason why they have been conducting a genocidal war against Israel for generations.
They care so much that Kuwait and Iraq both expelled huge numbers of Palestinian Arabs. Syria cares so much that it’s shelling Palestinian Arabs. And Hamas, the official Muslim Brotherhood representatives of Palestinian Arabs, and the most popular group among them, cares so much about them that it refuses to accept their refugees from Syria because it might undermine its campaign against Israel.
According to the report, head of Hamas in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh told UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, that the Gaza Strip couldn’t take in Syria’s Palestinian refugees due to an ideological issue: If they take in the refugees from Syria, Israel could use it against them when it comes to the Palestinians’ demand for the “right to return” to villages inside present day Israel, by pointing out that the refugees no longer need to return to Israel because they have been relocated to new homes in the Gaza Strip.
Is that the real story?
Hamas could easily stick them in tent cities or any form of temporary housing. For that matter the refugee camps in Lebanon and Syria are permanent affairs full of houses, and are actually cities that have been around for longer than many Israeli cities.
The real reason that Hamas is refusing to accept the Syrian refugees is that too many of them are supporters of Assad, and Hamas is a Muslim Brotherhood operation and the Muslim Brotherhood is fighting to take over Syria.
