in response to reader comment: What is wrong with the civilized world?

Never has there been a situation that peoples who have left their homes voluntarily because they were so instructed by arab leaders would be coddled, encouraged and suspended in pergatory of unacceptance in the countries that they have settled in. Every migrating population in history have managed to settle and move on, despite terrible hardships. It is ironic that Israel accepted all of the sudden refugees after 1948 that the Muslim countries expelled from their lands just because they were Jews. They were pushed out with only the clothes on their backs and forced to leave their birthplaces of generations before. And they were accepted by Israel, a fledgling state with no economic means and resettled successfully. So much so that they are an integrated and important part of Israel society today. It is a travesty that the arab families who are in these ridiculous 'camps' are kept this way in Lebanon, Syria and Jordan. I hear that even in Saudi Arabia someone from Palestine will not be given citizenship.
