Does UNRWA's definition even matter anymore?

Reader comment on item: "Eventually, All Humans Will Be Palestine Refugees"

Submitted by Pez Dispenser (Israel), Feb 23, 2012 at 04:27

Let's assume that tomorrow UNRWA changes the definition of a Palestinian refugee and cuts off funding for all the other generations. I don't see how this would change the Palestinian desire to keep the conflict going.

That children born today are considered "refugees" makes them more likely to devote their lives to eliminating Israel.
