7. Well then the word doesn't support your point.
The fact is that over 150,000 Gaza Palestinians have lived in Jordan since 1967. None of these have been granted citizenship, even after 40 years, and most are literally forced to live in squalid refugee camps and not permitted to travel or seek normal lives among the people of Jordan. Tens of thousands of children have been born and lived their entire lives in these "temporary" camps. It's been a human rights disaster. It gets overshadowed by by the abuse of the Palestinians at the hands of the Israelis - and it's touchy because the ME street so strongly opposes Israel - but that's no reason to deny the problem. And it's not just Abdullah II's father - the situation continues to this day under his leadership.
