,,,,Morgan there were also an equally large number of JEWISH refugees from Arab countries. The difference is that Israel absorbed the Jewish refugees thereby ending their refugee status, while the Arab countries have intentionally avoided doing so in order to maintain a grievance with Israel. There were a number of refugee situations that were created by the establishment of new countries following the Second World War---all of them were essentially resolved by integration of former refugees (e.g. India and Pakistan) so that with the exception of the Palestinian Arab refugees, none of them are still have refugee status. The Palastinian Arab refugee numbers have actually multiplied greatly since 1948 and are STILL increasing due to the unique conferance of the status onto descendents of the origanal population. And by the way, why are there still refugee camps in GAZA which is now under Palestinian administration??
