"Arab summit will not help Palestinians at all"

Palestine Today reports that Hani al-Masri, a political analyst, says that he expects zero help for Palestinian Arabs at the Arab summit to be held later this week in Libya.

al-Masri said that from the experience of previous such summits, the Arab nations will talk a good game and, in the end, do nothing.

He was especially harsh with Egypt, saying that they were more interested in maintaining their peace agreement with Israel than in helping Palestinian Arabs.

Since "al-Masri" means "the Egyptian," perhaps he is upset at his ancestors who moved to Palestine and turned him into a stateless person who is not welcome back to his homeland.
