Since the 1948 Israeli War, more than 5 million Palestinians have been displaced, taking refuge outside their homeland. Of those, more than 1.5 million individuals are registered in refugee camps across the Middle East.  Located in Amman, Jordan, the Jerash “Gaza” camp is  an area currently home to 29,000 registered Palestinian refugees. Initially established in 1968 as an emergency settlement for the 11,500 displaced persons who had left the Gaza Strip, the tents have been replaced by shelters—many made of asbestos—and the population has and continues to grow. According the UNRWA, the Jerash camp is the poorest among the ten Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan, with 52.7 percent of Palestine refugees having an income below the national poverty line.  -------------- In September of 1982 Lebanese Christian militiamen entered the Palestinian refugee camps of Sabra and Shatila in West Beirut; over the course of three days, Israeli forces sealed the camp and killed several thousand refugees. Today, Palestinian refugees in Lebanon are barred from 30 syndicated professions and only 2 percent of Palestinians in nonprofessional jobs have proper work permits. They do not have passports. They are prohibited from owning and inheriting property. Denied the right of return to Palestine, these individuals are born refugees, will grow up as refugees and will likely die as refugees.
