    Disgraced by wars, Palestinian regugees have lived in misery, supression and humiliation in the Arab countries they are. They have no equal rights to local citizens, because they are kept frozen in time as refugees, to keep the grudge of non-Palestinian Arabs who lost every war with Israel, alive. Then comes Nabil Sha'ath, who knows this so well, and has the nerve to write that Israel "is responsible for the perpetuation of the Palestinian refugee issue". A shame, because the article was pretty good, until Mr. Sha'ath had an emotional short-circuit. Or is it a mantra he needs to fit in somewhere, no matter how false it is? Then the article further goes astray with the statement " In exchange, we offer full recognition of the State of Israel by 57 Arab and Muslim countries". Yes, like Iran, Syria and Lebanon for example? May there be peace, and two states, the Jewish state of Israel, and the Arab state of Palestine; the sooner the better, living in peace, security, mutual respect, no occupation, no terrorism, no quarrels, no settlements, no lies, no incitement, no extremism, bigotry, fanaticism in any way or shape, Amen.

    from the article: Does Israel want peace or to play the blame game?
