al-Majdal;Jun2010, Issue 44, p35
The article looks at the factors causing the forced displacement of the Palestinian refugees from Kuwait. It mentions that the centralization of the country's economy aiming to minimize its control and influence on non-Kuwaitis in both professional and civil services causes the Kuwaiti government to displace the Palestinians. It also points out that the invasion of Iraq in the country triggers such decision due to the perception of the government that Palestinians sided with the Iraqi invaders.
