Because the world really does not care much if Arabs kill Arabs, but if the Jews or US were doing it, thousands would be marching, protests, etc, etc

Thanks Colin P

I sometimes wonder if the Arabs care about Arabs killing Arabs but after the last few years I don't think so.

They care if their sect is being attacked. 

People seem to think that Muslims or Arabs are one unified group.  They are not - there are multiple sects in Islam, the two biggest ones are Sunni and Shia.  In this case, the Alawites (of which Bashar Al-Assad is one) are a sect of Shia Islam, and are expelling Palestinians who are generally Sunni Islam. 

I liken it to Catholics and Protestants but on a larger scale.

Kuwaiti News Anchor Calls Palestinian Rejection of UAE-Israel Peace Deal ‘Historic Mistake’

Kuwaiti television anchor Fajer Alsaeed said this week that the Palestinian rejection of the agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israel is a "historic mistake."

"If the Palestinians reject the benefits that the UAE managed to achieve for them, there will not be a second chance. I hope that they will deal with it reasonably and do away with the revolutionary spirit that is not suitable for this day and age," Alsaeed said Monday, according to a translation by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

"I believe that this is a historic mistake by the Palestinian decision-makers," she added.

Don`t worry the Palestinians will make sure they create a even larger better historic mistake in the near future, it`s what they do.
