Why would they not?

Reader comment on item: Palestinians Who Cling to Israel

Submitted by Jack Lass (United States), Jul 6, 2005 at 16:23

Let's see now. Why would Palestinians cling to Israel? Could it be that it because they stand a better chance of making a living and feeding their families there? Might better health insurance be a good reason? ... Given a state with a chance at viability, I submit that most Palestinians would choose to live in it. Until that happens, well, people have to eat, need health care, pensions, etc. So why cut their noses off to spite their faces? Of course they prefer to cling to Israel under the circumstances.
