KUALA LUMPUR: More than 3,000 Palestinians who left their homeland following the brutality of the Zionist regime, have chosen Malaysia as the best country for temporary protection because they have confidence in the peace and political stability here.
Palestinian Cultural Organisation Malaysia (PCOM) chairman Muslim Abu Umar said Malaysia became the best choice because not many Muslim countries were stable, but Malaysia had proven otherwise. In Malaysia, security was guaranteed.
"Although some of them have migrated to the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada, many of them want to live in Malaysia because of the peace and stability of the country," he said here yesterday.
Muslim, 25, and four PCOM staff, could not possibly return to their country for a long time unless a final decision was made by the international community on the brutality of the Israeli regime against the Palestinian people.
He said there were no Palestinian refugees in Indonesia although the country was home to the world's largest Muslim population, but Malaysia seemed the most capable of assuring the safety of refugees. Bernama
