    As many as 10,000 civilians at a Palestinian refugee camp on the outskirts of Syria’s capital are facing a dire situation, including extreme food shortages, as extremists continue to fight for territory there, the United Nations warned this weekend.

    The Islamic State launched an attack on the Nusra Front in the Yarmouk camp in south Damascus 11 days ago and the continued violence has made it unsafe for U.N. officials to send food and water.

    ...thousands have died or fled since it was ravaged by the Islamic State and other extremist groups. Many of the estimated 18,000 who remain are trapped in the latest crossfire...

    That's actually a great question.

    In the 1940s, there were scores of millions of refugees across the world. In Europe, the Mideast, south Asia and the far east. Including nearly 1 million Jews from Arab/Muslim countries. None of them "returned", all became citizens elsewhere and were resettled.

    Except for the 700,000 Arab refugees (the majority of whom were not expelled but fled the Arab-initiated violence) from Mandate Palestine (the Jewish state-to-be - which Arabs into the 1920s - and later - considered part of... Syria).

    These 700,000 refugees and their descendants (technically not themselves refugees - they should be citizens in the country where they, their parents, grand-parents and now great-grandparents were born) have become unwilling pawns in the battle to destroy Israel.

    Only 10% of them want to "return" to Israel, but for the haters these are a demographic army by which to over-run the Jewish state with non-Jews.

    Thus they have been kept in refugee camps for generations, and even those outside the camps face a formal system of apartheid: deprived of the rights guaranteed by the Geneva Conventions to all other refugees: the right to education, work, relocation and naturalization (citizenship) in their new country.

    Once again showing us that certain people hate Israel/Jews more than they care for the Palestinian Arabs.

    Which goes a long way to explain why there are no "flotillas" or "convoys" to aid these Palestinian Arabs (or other besieged populations in Syria).

    Despite the fact they they, unlike Gazans, actually need the help.
    (Gaza receives more aid via Israel every day than all the convoys and flotillas combined - even ignoring that the little they took months to deliver - it was really just political theater - was past its shelf life.)

    "Palestine" is the Latin/European name for Eretz Yisrael, the Jewish homeland
    and 20th century Arab denials of the existence of "Palestine".

    That's completely horrible and hard even to believe but I know from my past readings of the very smart Librarian of Congress Boorstin's historical writings on the USA that this country used populations of Native Americans to control expansion of European descendants in early America for the purposes of building an economy which would not have occurred had white populations dispersed instead of being concentrated by placements of reservations, fear of attacks, etc.

    It's so monstrous that a whole population would be used so politically, that if we didn't know it happens in reality we'd only imagine it as a science fiction.
