No one is offering them a life outside of the refugee camps. To be fair to Jordan, they have absorbed a large proportion of Palestinian refugees and should not be expected to take on any more.

IMO, Britain has a significant moral responsibility given its role in the Nakba and should be expected to absorb some of the refugees. Palestinians who were kicked out of the gulf states following the first gulf war should be permitted to return. Other states have a role to play. I concede that Lebanon would not be able to properly absorb all of the refugees resident there, given the small size of that country.

But to say that Israel should pass the entire burden of resettling refugees onto other countries when it created the refugee crisis is ridiculous.
