Over the span of many decades, there have been many wars in the world.Millions of refugees have been displaced leading to much human suffering.However in time, the nations of the world, or the host nation absobed the refugees.
There are examples of that all over Asia and Europe.
Only one area do we see a refuisal to solve the "refugee" problem. That is in the Palestinian refugee problem.This is so because the Arabs have used this as a pawn and a hammer overf the western world and Israel.
The whole cry"Right of Return" is only a substitute for the destruction of Israel.Over the years UNWRA (with US support) has supported this concept of "eternal Refugees", with money,political support and a failure to advance the lives of these second,third and fourth generation "refugees'.
No other refugee problem in the world has become a permanent beaurocracy that also teaches hate for Israel in the schools that exist in the camps.Many times the Arabs have refused offers to build modern homes ,because it would destroy the image of the homeless refugee.
FINALLY THE SENATE APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEEE HAS PASSED LEGISLATION THAT WOULD MANDATE THE STATE DEPT. TO DOCUMENT HOW MANY REAL SURVIVORS OF 1948 ARE STILL ALIVE.(HOPEFULLY THE CONGRESS WILL PASS A SIMILAR BILL)
The guess is 30,000 .The rest never saw a home in Israel.
Their plight is nO different from the hundreds of thousands of Jewish refugees that were forced to leave Arab countries without compensation.They were absorbed by Israel.
The Arab countries refused to intgegrate and absorb these people
Perhaps when we know how many of these people really "left" their homes ( or left voluntarily-being promised to come back to a Palestinian victory) we c an get closer to a solution-I DOUBT IT
The Wisconsin race is too early to call-will wait until tomorrow.
