To be a refugee or to not be a refugee; that is the question

Reader comment on item: Count Palestine Refugees?

Submitted by Rebecca (United States), May 29, 2012 at 14:38

By exposing this raw edge that damages UNRWA's reputation, the work already accomplished and brought to light should provide a window of opportunity to hopefully correct this anomaly. What Dr. Pipes says rings true about the non-refugees of these descendents; they will certainly be disenranchised in the process. By hanging onto this fantasy that they are true refugees, they are only harming themselves, as well as continuing to be a threat to the existence of Israel.
