FF: "Palestinians, due to some back-room arm-twisting by the Arab-Block and other countries that vote alongside them were able to convince the UN to set up an *entirely* separate agency JUST for the Palestinians, the UNWRA." Did it ever occur to you that this situation was unique precisely because the Partition Plan came *from* the UN, and so the UN felt a particular responsibility towards the plight of these refugees. The UNGA was rather pissed off about the expression of contempt from Israel towards its plan - you know, grabbing twice as much territory and making it as Arab-free as the Haganah could manage. So the UN aren't willing to let Israel off the hook, even today. After all, the UN considers that there are 8.5 billion refugees worldwide, and over 4.5 billion of them are Palestinians.
