With Friends Like These-Denial of the right to vote.
But that is exactly the offer the PA is doing with the Palestinian refugees, as reported in Arutz Sheva. To keep them in the world's eye, to incite hatred of the Israel is more important to the PA then giving the refugees the a right the rest of their citizenship enjoys---the right to vote in the upcoming elections, as well as other rights.
Is this a good sign for a future Palestinian democracy? For a healthy state free of terrorism against other populations as well as its own? I would like to hear a word of protest and outrage here.
