The UN and Boneheads

Reader comment on item: Count Palestine Refugees?

Submitted by Jay1 (United States), Jun 2, 2012 at 10:50

There is no end to the absurdity of the Israel Palestine conflict. As Dr Pipes points out,by the UN's own definition of a Palestinian refugee,there are only about 50,000 people still alive. Indeed a ten year old in 1948 is now 73 years old. But which is more disturbing? The UN (re)defining and supporting any definition of a Palestinian refugee it chooses,or the US State Dept hugging the trees of no opinion on final status issues that fairly benefit Israel? When it come to the refugee issue,the Jerusalem issue,and the borders issue, Israel should cement things unilaterally only .Sadly, Israel will receive no fairness or justice Israel lives in a world of a crazy UN, and bone head fudgesicles.
