There's no end to the misery of the Palestinians in that camp, some of whom have been living there since 1948 or 1967. It already was a terrible place to live, now it has become a living hell.

This terrible misery has been an ongoing tragedy since midway through the 20th century and doesn't look like improving any time soon. It is from what I can understand a hell hole of despair and as close to the burning pits of hell as one could ever imagine. It is the 21st century and why we tolerate such terrible living standards for fellow human beings is the $20,000.00 question? I fail to understand and never will. . . Thank you for posting. . .Noted. . .
