    Iraq Palestinians see hypocrisy in Maliki denouncing Israel’s Gaza attack
    By LEILA FADEL
    McClatchy Newspapers

    The roads are strewn with trash, and sewage fills the gutters in Baghdad’s Baladiyat district, which for decades has been home to Iraq’s biggest Palestinian community. Banned from holding Iraqi citizenship, even if they were born here, Palestinians lost some of the few rights they had after the U.S.-led invasion in 2003 and have lived in fear of Iraqi groups who seek revenge for the Palestinians’ perceived connection to the old regime.

    Now they feel even more alone, as they watch Arab satellite-television news about the fighting in Gaza, which has killed nearly 1,000 Palestinians, among them more than 200 children. They know Palestinians aren’t wanted in Iraq, either.

    “All of my life I have had no passport, no ID, and I’m sitting here living on barakat (blessings),” said Huda Saleh, 39, who runs a small Palestinian children’s club.

    Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s public denunciation of the “major crimes against the Palestinian people in Gaza” evoked a bitter laugh from Saleh as she riffled through pictures of Palestinians thought to have been killed by Iraqi Shiite Muslim militias and National Police commandos during the height of sectarian violence.

    “When Maliki talks about Gaza, I ask, ‘What are you doing to us?’” she said. “When Iran talks about Gaza, I think, ‘Who killed us? Wasn’t it your people?’” she asked, referring to Iraqi Shiite militias supported by Iran who targeted them for their supposed allegiance to Saddam Hussein and the Baath Party. “God created us to be beaten, and wherever we go we’re abused.”
