In a first, U.S. declares 5 million Palestinians to be refugees; but where will they go if they can’t go home?

Ambassador Abdullah Abdullah

Palestinian Arab “refugees” wouldn’t be citizens of “Palestine” – even if they live there!

Did you think that 63 years of Arabs using the “refugees” as political pawns would end if there was a Palestinian Arab state?
If you want to know the depths of cynicism of the Palestinian Arab leadership towards their people, you must read this article in The Daily Star Lebanon:
Palestinian refugees will not become citizens of a new Palestinian state, according to Palestine’s ambassador to Lebanon.
From behind a desk topped by a miniature model of Palestine’s hoped-for blue United Nations chair, Ambassador Abdullah Abdullah spoke to The Daily Star Wednesday about Palestine’s upcoming bid for U.N. statehood.
The ambassador unequivocally says that Palestinian refugees would not become citizens of the sought for U.N.-recognized Palestinian state, an issue that has been much discussed. “They are Palestinians, that’s their identity,” he says. “But … they are not automatically citizens.
This would not only apply to refugees in countries such as Lebanon, Egypt, Syria and Jordan or the other 132 countries where Abdullah says Palestinians reside. Abdullah said that “even Palestinian refugees who are living in [refugee camps] inside the [Palestinian] state, they are still refugees. They will not be considered citizens.”

Quietly, East Jerusalem Palestinians acquiring Israeli citizenship

The Palestinian Jerusalemites today live in an ever-changing environment that necessitates a constant revision of upcoming threats. For many Jerusalemites, a daily exercise of “redefining home,” “flight from danger,” and “fear of displacement,” “fear of home demolitions” “fear of losing their IDs” govern their thinking. Unlike the 1948 and 1967 Palestinian experiences, which occurred more or less in a moment of declared war and, simultaneously, created populations that fit the legal definitions of refugees, the current political situation and the slower process of displacement has created a permanent refugee mode of behavior. It is one that contains all the psychological components of refugee behavior and is much more internalized, yet does not figure in the legal definition of refugees.

BEIRUT: For the first time, the U.S. government said it considers the descendants of those who fled or were expelled from Palestine in 1948 to be refugees, Foreign Policy magazine reported Friday.
The U.S. has also placed the number of Palestinian refugees – who live in the West Bank, Gaza and the countries surrounding Israel – at 5 million, according to the report.
Advocates of Israel worry that the move could give an advantage to the Palestinians in terms of their right of return.
Steve Rosen, a longtime official with AIPAC, the pro-Israel lobby group, argued that calling 5 million Palestinians refugees, including some 2 million who are citizens of Jordan, means recognizing their right to return, even though Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama have said that a two-state solution would mean most refugees would not return to Israel proper, Foreign Policy reported.
“How many generations does it go?” asked Rosen. “I’m Jewish, and as a grandchild of several refugees, could I make a claim on all these countries? Where does it end? Someday all life on Earth will be a Palestinian refugee.” 

US to differentiate between personally

displaced’ Palestinian refugees and

their descendants

Palestinian refugee children, now counted separatelyfrom those "personally displaced" in 1948.
Today the U.S. government approved a resolution to differentiate between Palestinians “personally displaced” in 1948 and their millions of descendants. The count will be conducted by the State Department and will only include refugees who receive United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) services. Known as the “Kirk amendment” after the drafter, Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL). The bill reads:
