I once asked a senior refugee in Jenin, "Why don't you get out of this hole, improve your quality of life, and live just like any other person in the world?" He replied: "If you ask the residents, they would tell you that they're willing to be evacuated right now. Yet the PLO wishes to perpetuate this camp as a living monument it forbids the removal of even one stone from here, as the moment there is no longer a camp, there would no longer
be a Palestinian problem it cares less about the victims."
