Palestinians being stripped of their Jordanian citizenship

Jordan is revoking the citizenship of Palestinians because they want them to remain refugees. The want the festering sore. How can they complain about Israel if the Palestinians are integrated into society and no longer refugees? Middle East | Jerusalem Post : Jordanian authorities have started revoking the citizenship of thousands of Palestinians living in Jordan to avoid a situation in which they would be "resettled" permanently in the kingdom, Jordanian and Palestinian officials revealed on Monday. The new measure has increased tensions between Jordanians and Palestinians, who make up around 70 percent of the kingdom's population.
