Dear Khadijeh

Reader comment on item: [UNRWA:] The Refugee Curse

Submitted by jhs (United States), Aug 22, 2003 at 17:59

Khanume zarafshar , I wish I could see you in person so I could explain to you in your own language which I happen to speak . The Palestinians were offered a country back in 1948 by the UN. Are you aware of it ? Do you read history or do you believe what the Ayatolah regime feeds you ? They refused to take it , (just like they refused when Ehud Barak offered two years ago) , then they attacked and started the war of 1948 together with the help of their arab bretheren Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon. They all lost the war of 1948 , just like they have lost every war since then and they will surely lose also the current war of intifada , then the invading and humiliated arab armees retreated back to their own countries but they did not offer shelter to the indigenous Palestinian fighters and did not accept them into their midst . Some of the Palestinian fighters lost ground and ran away and became refugees; some non fighters left their homes and became rfugees . But pay attention to the fact that those Palestinians that did not run away were fully absorbed by Israel and became citizens and today enjoy a normal life . If the arab world wants to solve the refugee problem they should each absorb a small fraction of them .

You should worry about your own compatriots that suffer under the ugly ayatolah regime
