Birthright Palestine

A new Bethlehem-based NGO intends to “gather first-generation, western-born Palestinians (over the age of 18-years old) in their ancestral homeland, so that they can reunite and witness firsthand how their brethren are living under illegal Israeli military occupation.” Check the link below for further information on the 2008 program.

    Interesting. I believe that it’s taken from a Zionist program of the same name. Though one question, looking through the 10 reasons to join page, it said that they could apply for ‘Palestinian Citizenship. I was under the impression that because of their lack of national status (the occupied territories not being internationally recognized as a state) they were given United Nations Refugee Status. Am I missing something? Any help would be appreciated.
