    The UN body that exists solely to look after palestinian interests defines a refugee as somebody who was living in Palestine between 1946 - 1948. It says nothing about the chidren, grandchildren and great grandchildren being refugees in their own right. There are very few refugees left and there will be no right of return for them or their descendents. The sooner the world stops refering to them as refugees the easier it will be to solve that issue. If nobody else is calling them refugees other than the arab and muslim world the palstinian politicians are going to start thinking maybe its time we found a way to kill the right of return thinking because we can't sell the idea to the west.
