VIDEO: THE STREAM – “Discrimination in the diaspora” 22Apr12 April 22, 2012

Aljazeera   –   21 April 2012

Since the establishment of the state of Israel, the number of Palestinians living in Arab countries has grown to nearly five million. They are often denied citizenship, and have few legal or economic rights in their host countries.

Many point to a failure of integration as the root cause of such discrimination. Arab host governments claim this is done to maintain pressure for the “right of return.”

In this episode of The Stream, we speak with Laila ElHaddad (@gazamom), a blogger and journalist and Mahmoud El Ali, a professor of Sociology at Lebanese University.
