Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As Australians with a sense of directness would reply ...

... in truth nearly every Arab state has long viewed the Palestinians with "fear and loathing," Crocker says. This is especially true of Egypt, which will continue to refuse to admit Palestinians from across the border, he says.

See my diary on said topic ... Muslim Brotherhood, Morsi and Islamic State in Sinai

For Crocker to generalize, means he is just a dumbass, an Islamophobe or an a$$hole ...

Oral History Ryan Crocker

With the upheaval in Syria and U.S./NATO failed attempt to overthrow Bashar Al-Assad, Jordan accepted Syrian war refugees, but no Palestinians due to a balancing act after the Black September uprising of 1971. See also the troubles in the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp near Damascus, overrun by ISIS in 2015.

Palestinians right of return

The United Nations General Assembly adopts resolution 194 (III), resolving that "refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbours should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property which, under principles of international law or equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible."
