    Almost without notice, over 1 million Iraqis packed their bags and drove to either Jordan or Syria. No news, no page One stories, no noise. And don't forget these people were really leaving something behind - homes and real businesses. The transition has been so smooth that neither Jordan or Syria is clamoring for international aid - much to their credit. Japan has offered Syria money and Jordan will also be getting funds but its a pittance compared to the money thrown down the palestinian drain. Why is Jordan, essentially a palestinian state, so opposed to accepting palestinians when it has opened its borders to Iraqis? Acceptance of their Arab brethren appears to be the case in the instance of Iraqis so why not palestinians? And considering how little infrastructure and businesses palestinians have built or developed they have even less to leave behind than do these Iraqis. And forget 'temporary'. These Iraqis brought everything they had left to the new states.
