Palestinian refugees–read the article before you comment

This article details how Palestinian refugees are the only ones who pass their refugee status on from generation to generation, and how the UN agency created to help them is instead invested in perpetuating the problem:

My parents were refugees from Germany. Do I consider myself a refugee? My kids? My grandkids?


Absurd. Yet this is the central issue in Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking–not borders, not Jerusalem, certainly not settlements. The myths and emotions built up over 60 years of refugee politics have made it almost impossible to resolve.
