Excuse me?!

Get this, from CNN:
In an important article about a poll of Palestinian "refugees," addressing the so-called "right of return," CNN.com says this:

"Many Palestinians who left what is now Israel became refugees, taken in by Arab states -- some of which were ill-equipped to support them."

Would someone like to tell me about (A) what Arab states "took in" these refugees? and (B) how is it that they are "ill-equipped" to support them? Not enough land? Not enough money?

Argh and grrrrr.

Write to cnn@cnn.com or leave your comments at http://www.cnn.com/feedback/ --where they have a link for "errors on our website" followed by a selection for "Editorial: Wrong information, information left out, editorial slant on story," etc.

Either way, you will need the url for the story, "Polls: Few Palestinian refugees interested in settling in Israel" -- http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/meast/07/15/palestinian.survey/index.html
