For 64 years UNRWA got away with perparing generations of Arabs to be Jew killers

Reader comment on item: Count Palestine Refugees?

Submitted by NuritG (United States), May 31, 2012 at 03:50

Facts: since the end of WWII, many millions of people have become refugees, i.e. Germans, India-Pakistan, Africa, SE Asia, and Central America, all were or have settled and went on with their life. But only one group remained eternal refugees, the Arab refugees, who later adopted the name "Palestinians." The United Nations Relief and Works Agency, has deliberately kept these Arabs as "refugees," in squalid habitation conditions and have made a profitable business out of it. Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) proposed legislation would strip Arab-"Palestinian" refugees' descendants of their political symbolism, which would be a landmark for this generations-old conflict the Arabs have with Jews. But whether it will pave the way for peace or conflict remains to be seen. There are few more potent symbols of the Palestinian cause. So don't expect Palestinians to give up on any so easily, if at all.
