    Most refugees belong to the old generation and probabily entirely passed away. This is true both for palestinians once in Eretz and similarly with regard to Jews refugee in Arab countries. Is the new generation's right so intense ? I do not believe so. I was born in Libya and compelled to leave the country between 1967 and 1969 when finally Gheddafi came in. My parents passed away ( my father , at 96, last of 8) and my generation is the last phisical human link to Lybian jewish life and heritage there . My sons were born in Italy and they surely know a lot about Tripoli , about the beauties of the Libyan country and the rich Jewish -sefardi life there thanks to our tales and traditions. May be there is a plce in their hearts for Tripoli. However , if my generation may still claim rights ( of return ) in Libya , are my sons entitled the same rights ? I do not believe so,either legally or substantially , simply because my sons, the new generation, never were part of the Libyan country .
