(Luis Cornelio, Headline USA) Two Arab countries have stood firm against the acceptance of Palestinian refugees, echoing the recent rejection from the GOP regarding the admission of thousands of Gaza refugees.
King Abdullah II of Jordan made a resolute declaration, aligning his country’s stance with Egypt’s, emphasizing their refusal to accept refugees seeking to flee the conflict-ridden Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.

Speaking alongside German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in Berlin, King Abdullah described the potential acceptance of Gaza refugees as a “red line” for both Jordan and Egypt.
“There will be no refugees in Jordan and no refugees in Egypt,” he declared, highlighting that the crisis must be controlled within Israel. “That is a red line because I think that is the plan by certain of the usual suspects to try and create de facto issues on the ground.”
The New York Post reported Monday that Abdullah’s comments appeared to refer to Israel’s demands that Gaza residents evacuate the northern region of the strip ahead of an imminent on-ground invasion.
Similarly, Egypt has refused to open its borders to the Gaza Strip, fearing an uncontrolled influx of refugees into the North African country.
There is a long border between Gaza and Egypt. Why is Egypt not opening it so the refugees from Gaza could flee from Israel’s attacks?
Because Egypt knows that these “refugees” would gladly slaughter Egyptian civilians just as well. pic.twitter.com/3TNnqIz4iu

In the U.S., Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., one of the most radical members of the House of Representatives, proposed the admission of Palestinian refugees into the United States. His call was faced swift criticism from Republican leaders.
“Middle Eastern countries should take Gaza refugees. Not the United States,” remarked Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., on Oct. 14 via Twitter.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., echoed Gaetz’s remarks, raising security concerns with accommodating individuals from a Terrorist hotbed.
“We can not [sic] take in 1 million refugees from Gaza,” she said. “We would be importing antisemitic people, many who support terrorism Besides the Biden admin has already imported millions of illegals who should not be here and is forcing Americans to pay for them.”
