Palestinians are not among neediest people

Palestinians are not among the world’s neediest people.

Millions of other Muslims are among the neediest

Compiled by Israel Zwick, CN Publications, April 27, 2010

Editor’s Note: While much of the world shows so much concern for the “plight of the Palestinian refugees” living in Gaza, Judea, and Samaria, little attention is given to the millions of real refugees and IDP’s who are living in tents without food or clothing. The following information was taken from the website, Concern Worldwide, http://www.concern.net/ .
