    Obviously the Arab World has taken this new development seriously. For Iran has just upped the ante. Using Syria as a proxy. Iran needs to heat up the Northern Border for its own political ambitions, this is what the Arab States are following. For they know that any peace deal with the Palestinians will be placed once again in limbo, whilst Israel deals with Hezbollah. There are literally millions of Palestinians living in the Arab States, without having the same rights as citizens in the host countries. For example, in Lebanon, Palestinians can only work in certain areas of the labor market. Certain regulations as to land or residential ownership is almost nil, even should they wish to build an add on to an existing abode they have to seek permits that are almost impossible. Obviously, a stateless people without basic rights are a political risk for any country. By giving them rights, the governments maintain that they are undermining the right of return, Clever, yet dangerous. G·day.
