Some were expelled, some were threatened, many more left voluntarily, but all were taken in by Israel. Thankfully, few suffered the fate of the palestinian refugees, who were forced from their ancestral homeland, rounded into refugee camps and subjected to humiliating and dehumanising conditions. It's no wonder that Palestinian children have the highest prevalence of PTSD anywhere

With respect, some 200,000 Palestinian Arabs left before shots were even fired - and this despite Jewish pleas to Arab leaders to stay and help build the new nation of Israel. It's further worth reflecting on the fact that Arab High Command and other leaders such as the al Husseini clan refused to honor the UN Partition that was meant to create both Israel and a Palestinian Arab state, and started a war instead.

Thus your history is more than a little inaccurate.

Also, despite the abominable treatment of Palestinian Arabs by many Arab nations, where they are segregated into "camps" after decades, including for example in Lebanon - these kids suffer more than the victims of war in the Sudan for example.

And, it's important to recognize the fact that Palestinians have their very own refugee agency at the UN, and all the other tens of millions of refugees since WWII share another and also do not inherit refugee status. On the other hand there are still "refugee camps" even in Gaza and on the West Bank.

Apologies, I meant to say it strikes me as implausible to assert that Palestinian kids have greater degrees of PTSD than other kids including those who grow up in impoverished neighborhoods in the US? Can you please cite some sources?

re: #1 Lobengula

Yes, because Israel absorbed them, whereas the Arabs country refused to absorb the Palestinian refugees to perpetuate the problem, using them as pawns against Israel.

Palestine is the ancestral homeland of the Jews, not the Palestinians.

re: #5 Eclectic Infidel

Palestine is the ancestral homeland of the Jews, not the Palestinians.

Because if it was the ancestral home of the Palestinians, the name would be something that could be pronounced properly in Arabic. & it's not.
