. “Palestine” is the ultimate welfare state. Supported by the UN, socialist Europe and the American State Department. Highest per-capita income in the Mid-East. Bleeding heart central. Give the Kurds, the Armenians or the Copts half the welfare dollars and opportunity the “Palestinians” have received and all would be thriving, contributing member states of the world community. The “Palestinians” are not worthy of a state and do not deserve one. Nearly seventeen years after the signing of the Oslo Accords and a decade since Palestinians achieved autonomy via the apparatus of the Palestinian Authority, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians retain the designation of “refugee” and live in “refugee camps.” Every single one of these camps is within the jurisdiction of an Arab government. Despite a history of flowery pronouncements celebrating the “commitment” to the resolution of the refugee issue, Palestinian refugees continue to be used as pawns by their own leaders. Even worse is the entrenched cultural and political commitment to maintaining a culture of victimhood and recidivism.
