"...64 years they have continued to live in the disgraceful and crippling conditions of refugee camps." And whose fault is that? The Arab states, mostly brand new national entities created after WWI, refused to grant their brethren citizenship or free them from the camps. They preferred to hold them as pawns in a constant war against Israel. There was no "palestinian" identity until it was made up by the Egyptian Yasser Arafat in the 1960's. No effort was made between 1948 and 1967 by Egypt or Jordan to create an autonomous entity in Gaza and the West Bank, respectively. In fact, King Hussein, whose throne was artificially created by the British in 2/3 of the original Palestine Mandate, gave the West Bank arabs citizenship, only to take it away when the Arab League decided to underwrite Arafat. This article is a nostalgic look at the Jewish diaspora history. But to tie it to a need for a 23rd Arab state or sorrow that 3rd and 4th generation Arabs cannot return to homes abandoned in 1948 from a war their grandparents started is ridiculous.
