Illigal Refugees

With respect to the "West Bank" region under control of the PA, the people living there cannot legally be defined as refugees, even if living in "camps". The reason is that as Palestinians who are living under a globally accepted Palestinian government - the PA - they are legally equivalent to a Canadian living in Canada or a Croatian living in Croatia. Thus, they are not refugees and UNWRA should not operate there.

Egyptian Jews did not remain refugees long.

Many Egyptian Jews were imprisoned after the 67 war. Their crime? They were Jewish - of course they were guilty!

I have a friend who was imprisoned and tortured for three years before he was released. He is now a proud American. He and many Jews lost everything when they left Egypt. He made a new home in the US and worked hard to be successful.

Great Video

This information needs to be distributed and published all over the world, till even the last journalist/politician/public mood maker has accepted its truth.

Why Israel is home for many refugees and why Palestine is still host to thousands of permanent refugees.

Israel is attracted to many Jews from all over the world because they are at home there and are making their way because Israel encourages them to become part of that Country. Palestine will always remain a camp for refugees because no other country wants them and they are controlled by outside groups that want to contain them for their purposes. Israel should never had traded land for peace because their enemies never intended to give them peace or recognize their State. All the Muslim counties are using Israel as an 'enemy' that results in their people hating something that distracts the people from their miserable conditions. America was also home to all refugees and for years was a light unto the world. Now we have many hating American implants that want to destroy America with many of them sucking off our welfare system due to one political party using them as a pawn. Therein lies America's dilemma.

I was told ....

In the early 1980s I was told by a French student at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, USA, that Palestinians were deliberately kept in refugee status to increase their agitation and hatred of Jews. He also indicated support for Vichy.

What a welcome and excellent video. This should be shown all over the world to school children, in order to counter all the nonsense we hear from the press.

Yellow too!

Great video! But I was surprised that yellow was not in the list of colors, as there are many Asian Israelis, both Jewish and non-Jewish!
