Who is a Palestinian Refugee? And who is a Jewish refugee? And what should the US Senate do about it?
Senator Mark Kirk
From the media I hear that you have introduced a bill (amendment to the FY 2013 funding bill) which aims to change the definition of "Palestinian refugee" and make it apply solely to people who were personally uprooted in 1948 from the territory which became the State of Israel. Your bill would therefore have the effect of depriving the descendants of these original refugees from having a refugee status.
