Palestinian "refugees": Prisoners of their own people

Boker Tov, Boulder wants to know, "Where has all the money gone?" (Hat-tip: This edition of Haveil Havalim, hosted by Soccer Dad.)

Almost 60 years have passed since the founding of the State of Israel. In that time, Israel has settled thousands of refugees from Middle Eastern countries such as Yemen, from the former Soviet Union, and from Ethiopia.

Yet, a third generation of Palestinian refugees is still living in camps. Why? Why have they not been resettled in Arab and/or Muslim countries? Why do the Palestinian so-called-refugee camps still exist? Do the Arab and/or Muslim nations of the Middle East consider these people humans, or are they mere pawns in a propaganda--and real--war, hostages of their own brethren, imprisoned and brainwashed to be used as cannon fodder?

It's high time that the Arab and/or Muslim nations of the Middle East, the United Nations, and the world at large gave the Palestinian "refugees" the opportunity to lead normal lives. (Hat-tip: This post by West Bank Mama). These people should be re-settled among their own, and the Palestinian so-called-refugee camps should be closed, once and for all!

They are pawns. Why they or the rest of the world can't see this is utterly beyond me.

Mark/PT, they, and the rest of the world, have been well brainwashed. It's amazing how easy it's been and continues to be for the Arabs and/or Muslims of the Middle East to deflect all criticism from themselves and redirect it unto Israel, no matter how many Israelis they kill.
