They aren't exactly welcomed here either (they rank off the chart in both criminal and unemployment), but we have to take them due to the UN, that's not the point though.

Honestly I have googled and I can't find any reason, why they are the 3rd biggest group of migrants at the moment. It actually seems like it's improving.

"you" treat them better. unemployment/criminality isn't a complete reflection of how they're treated. as in, you don't force them to become unskilled criminals who refuse to work

what are you searching for, why palestinians are leaving kuwait or why they are migrants to begin with ?
if the former, i just told you -- they're not welcomed, and the kingdom doesn't exactly care what the UN has to say about how to treat folks that aren't their own nationals.
if the latter, well there's basically this other newly formed country there that is at the center of conflict.

No they do that very well on their own.

I google Palestinians in Kuwait and Kuwait on CNN, BBC etc.

I think everyone at this point can agree that the best solution is to setup a sovereign state, whether or not they are able to actually to create a sustainable country is a big if though.

Well there you go. Now all americans can believe it

Israel's defence minister has accused Turkey of buying oil from the so-called Islamic State group, thereby funding the militants' activities.
Speaking in Athens, Moshe Yaalon said IS had "enjoyed Turkish money for oil for a very, very long period of time".
Turkey denies permitting IS smuggling, and the US recently rejected Russian allegations that Turkish government officials were in league the militants.
IS has captured swathes of Syria and Iraq, including operational oil fields.
"It's up to Turkey, the Turkish government, the Turkish leadership, to decide whether they want to be part of any kind of cooperation to fight terrorism," Mr Yaalon told reporters after a meeting with his Greek counterpart.

"This is not the case so far. As you know, Daesh [Islamic State] enjoyed Turkish money for oil for a very, very long period of time. I hope that it will be ended."
Mr Yaalon also alleged that Turkey had "permitted jihadists to move from Europe to Syria and Iraq and back".

Is there a even remote chance of Turkey being sucked into the the larger war in Syria or Iraq?
My wet dream is Turkey becoming another Libya or Syria. In that case limp-wristed EU would be forced to secure its Eastern border and stop allowing any muslims from crossing it.
Turkey has played both sides long enough while enjoying protected status from USA. Nothing will change until USA loses its bases in Turkey. Erdogan will continue to blackmail Europe as long as he is in NATO.

The Mossad has been saying this for months.

Now that the 1st Airborne headed to Syria, is it safe to say the US invasion of Syria has started? Taking over ariport 40km from Assad's ariport, claiming 1st Airborne will liberate Raqqa. I am very uneasy about this whole move as it puts US army in direct contact with Russian military.
Clearly Washington tries to establish foothold in Syria before Assad/Putin take more of the territory from the US sponsored 'moderate rebels'.
Very dangerous escalation with very little benefit to US.

What the blood are you talking about? I've never heard of a 1st Airborne. And if this imaginary 1st Airborne were going on an imaginary deployment it would be to Iraq not Syria.
