    The point is that millions of the Palestinian refugees were born in Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, the US, and other countries in the world. The majority were born post 1948 and post 1967 in those countries. As such, they should be Egyptian, Lebanese etc, just like any other refugee group's children would be. However, the Palestinians seem to deserve special treatment which makes them and their descendants Palestinian refugees. That's why the number of Palestinian refugees grow daily which causes unnecessary financial burden on the countries donating tax money to the UNWRA. It also puts these 'refugees' at a disadvantage as they cannot be citizens of the country they were born in, refuses to give them rights, job prospects etc.
