Palestinian Lebanese Ambassador Abdullah Abdullah went on to say that:
…Palestinian refugees would not become citizens of the sought for U.N.-recognized Palestinian state, an issue that has been much discussed. “They are Palestinians, that’s their identity,” he says. “But … they are not automatically citizens.”The Palestinian Liberation Organization would remain responsible for refugees, and Abdullah says that UNRWA would continue its work as usual.
This would not only apply to refugees in countries such as Lebanon, Egypt, Syria and Jordan or the other 132 countries where Abdullah says Palestinians reside. Abdullah said that “even Palestinian refugees who are living in [refugee camps] inside the [Palestinian] state, they are still refugees. They will not be considered citizens.”
Palestine STILL requires PERMANENT UNWRA contributions??? So what's the point, again??? The Arab nations refuse ONCE AGAIN to acknowledge the rights of their own citizens and accede to the realities of conflict, as they have continued to do since the camps were first established in 1948. This isn't a "solution", it's the perpetuation of Arab injustice thrust upon ever-shallower and emptier UN donor pockets. The Israeli's recognized the right s of ALL Jewish refugee's from Arab lands. Why can't the Arabs do likewise? What do they do with all their oil money, anyway? Why must Europe and the US subsidize Arab intransigence?
