Palestinian refugees fleeing Israeli massacres in 1948

Palestinian refugees fleeing Israeli massacres in 1948

Capitol Hill in Washington was rocked late last month when the Senate Appropriations Committee approved an amendment requiring the State Department, for the first time, to do a “count” of Palestinian refugees.

Yes, count is very well, but what is meant by this new amendment??!

Of course, the amendment required the State Department to specify how many of the five million Palestinians who receive aid from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency are refugees who were personally displaced from their homes in 1948, and how many are descendants of those refugees.

This means that most Palestinian refugees will stop receiving relief helps from the UNRWA. Why? Because most of the refugees who deserve helps from the UNRWA, according to the new amendment, have died.
