The Palestinians are opposed to any military intervention in the Syrian conflict, representatives of various factions, including Fatah and Hamas, announced on Thursday.The factions said in separate statements that a military strike in Syria would be harmful to all Arabs and would only benefit Israel.

He said that although he had no doubt that chemical weapons had been used in Syria, “the West is using this as an excuse to meddle in Syria’s internal affairs.”
Accusing the United States of employing a double-standard policy in the Middle East, the Fatah official asked where American and other Western aircraft carriers were “when Israel used phosphorous weapons during its aggression against the Gaza Strip in 2008 and 2009.”
Although Fatah has officially avoided taking sides in the Syrian conflict, relations between it and the Syrian government have been tense over the past two years, with some leaders condemning the Syrian regime for killing innocent civilians.
The Palestinian Authority leadership in the West Bank has avoided taking a public stance on Syria and the possible Western military strike.

One side in support of the rebels and one side not taking a side but both sides come together and are against Western intervention in this conflict and i agree we should not get involved in another countries civil war.

At least they both agree that the Jews are at the root of the problem. Also, the Palestinian take on avoiding unnecessary military conflicts should probably be taken with the world's largest grain of salt.

Tell me again what both Intifadas and the 2009 Gaza war did for Arabs?

Also, Hamas (unsurprisingly) is being hypocritical. They get to intervene in Syria on the rebel side (just as PFLP is doing so on Assad's side), but if we do it it's an attempt to expand our evil greedy Zionist control of the world?

Of course, those Jews are the root of and behind the entire Arab Spring movements through out the world and have funded the Shiite and Sunni wars for centuries. Hitler and Goebels and their followers would all agree on that.
