The only Palestinians who lost their residency status were those who stopped residing in the country for three years without applying for an extension. So, what's the big scandal? They stopped residing for a long period of time and thus stopped being residents. How many of these non-residents actually wanted to return? How many of them willingly settled elsewhere? The loss of residency of 140,000 people over 27 years is a tiny amount. It's about 5,000 a year. It's too insignificant to be considered as some nefarious policy. Compare that to Israel's (approximately) 1% emigration/year and you end up with a non-story.)
