New Resource

I receive almost daily e-mailings from a very dedicated and compassionate woman affiliated with United Methodist Liaison – Jerusalem.

Rev. Sandra Olewine is her name and today she’s sent out a link to a new resource some might be interested in reading.

BADIL SURVEY of Palestinian Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons 2002 can be found at this link and either ordered in print form or downloaded as a PDF file for a nominal fee.

The new annual Survey of Palestinian Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons 2002 provides an overview of one of the largest and longest standing unresolved cases of refugees and displaced populations in the world today. It is estimated that one in three refugees today is Palestinian.

This annual Survey endeavors to address the lack of information or misinformation about Palestinian refugees and internally displaced persons, and to encounter unconstructive political arguments that suggest that the issue of Palestinian refugees and internally displaced persons can be resolved outside the realm of international law and practice applicable to all other refugees and displaced populations.
