    'Egypt grants citizenship to 50,000 Palest... JPost - Middle East

    The Egyptian official estimates that by 2013 100,000 Palestinian Arabs who have Egyptian mothers will have been given Egyptians citizenship. I wonder why you don't get to be an Egyptian if your father was Egyptian.

    for those who do not know ----marriage by an egyptian to a PALESTINIAN "refugee" allows the whole family to claim "refugee" status ----and all the perks freely given by the UN (most of which is paid for by the USA) Thus marriage to a palestinian "refugee" is often a "STEP UP" for impoverished egyptian fellahin------thus the many "mixed" marriages----------to wit free rice and oil I wonder if the new "citizens" will still be considered "refugees" and still suck the teat of the american taxpayer-------they probably will

    Lets hope they don't end up slaughtering them like the Jordanians did in 1971.

    It would be wrong not to give credit where it's due.
    The new Egypt seems to be a more humane place and hopefully many more thousands of "refugees" will receive citizenship in the Arab/Muslim World where, if we are to believe BecauseIKnowSquat, all are brothers. :clap2::clap2::clap2:

    "Allah be praised, we all have Arab roots, and every Palestinian, in Gaza and throughout Palestine, can prove his Arab roots – whether from Saudi Arabia, from Yemen, or anywhere. We have blood ties. So where is your affection and mercy?

    Personally, half my family is Egyptian. We are all like that. More than 30 families in the Gaza Strip are called Al-Masri ["Egyptian"]. Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis.

    Who are the Palestinians? We have many families called Al-Masri, whose roots are Egyptian. Egyptian! They may be from Alexandria, from Cairo, from Dumietta, from the North, from Aswan, from Upper Egypt. We are Egyptians. We are Arabs. We are Muslims. We are a part of you." - Fathi Hammad, minister of the interior and national security for Hamas

    for those who really, really, don't know, iRose is notorious for harbouring a blind and bitter hatred for muslims and she is a liar. the fact is that once a person become a citisen of any country, they lose their legal UN refugee status and receive nothing.

    as for "sucking the teatof the american taxpayer", israel has practically turned that into an artform.
