The new Arab city of Rawabi being built in Samaria (Shomron) with Israeli approval refuses to allow Palestinian refugees from UNRWA camps to relocate to the city. This, despite past statements to the contrary, and the general impression that the need for a new Arab city was partly because of the suffering of said refugees, especially those still living in refugee camps.
So reports investigative journalist David Bedein of Israel Resource News Agency.
The new Palestinian Arab city of Rawabi, writes Bedein, has publicized in all stages of its development that it would build schools that would promote peace and reconciliation. He quoted Bashar al-Masri, Rawabis chief developer, as telling the Guardian for a story on Rawabi, We are not what they are led to believe, a bunch of terrorists
And yet, the town refuses to accept refugees and why? Because that would violate the PLO doctrine of the inalienable right of return to homes which they left in Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Beer Sheva, Tzfat, Ashkelon and more, writes Bedein.

An even better indicator than this is how many Syrian, Iraqi and Afghan refugees are accepted by Saudi Arabia. It is a huge country with a 90%+ foreign born workforce.
I spent the longest 90 days of my life in KSA.
Need to move all the refugee camps to within the city limits of this new city.
Heck, no need to even go there to visit anymore. I can see bearded mohameddans leading around women in black sacks of cloth right here in my hometown now! The only thing that’s missing is the camels.
