    That's more than Palestinians refugees fleeing the war Arab countries inflicted on Israel in the wake of its declaration of independence. Mentioning Palestiniasn is politically correct. Mentioning the 800.000 Jews forced to leave Arab and Muslim countries is not. What a nitid picture of how this world works in terms of media clichés and Arab propaganda. Thanks to the World Union for Prgressiv Judaism to bring this injustice and double standard to the attention of the UN a few years ago. While Israel accomodated these refugees with immense effort, Arab states continue to torment Palestinian refugees making the despondent and pawns of their hatred of Israel to this very dayk, denying them their basic rights of citizenship integration into these societies. They should be granted the right of return to the Palestinian state once it's established.
