“Palestinian refugee camps” have no tents. They are residential areas with beauty salons and Internet cafes.
The right of return for “Palestinian refugees” is a major sticking point in the upcoming U.S.-sponsored Middle East peace talks. But some younger Palestinians have never laid eyes on their ancestral homeland. They say they do not actually want to go back.
“On the record, because it is politically incorrect to say otherwise, all of them would say, “Yes”, we would return to Palestine.’ But once you sit with them in private, you hear a very different point of view,” says political analyst Sami Mubayyed.
With generations of Palestinians now having lived in Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East, they have established deep roots outside their ancestral homeland.

No Arab has the right to call him self a “Palestinian refugee”. Before the Israeli war of independence started in 1948, the first Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion offered all the Muslim Arabs Israeli citizenship if they chose not to fight and destroy the Jewish state.
Two million Arabs accepted the offer. The large majority of them are Muslims, called Israeli Arabs. Today they live inside the only free and democratic state in the Middle East.
What happened to the Arabs who declined the offer from Ben-Gurion?
They were promised by other Arab nations a quick Islamic victory over the Jews, and sided with the enemies of God’s plan of bringing the Jews bring home to Zion.
Other Arabs who lived inside Israel before 1948, decided to join the fight for the destruction of the Jewish nation. Rightly they should try to make a fresh start in the surrounding Arabic nations that lured and deceived them.
