Why is it no one wants the Palestinians?

More than 900 Palestinian families are homeless in Baghdad after the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime. He was paying their rents, and now that he's gone, the landlords have run them off.

The AFP caption says, "Fifty five years after being rooted (sic) from their homes in Haifa in British Mandate Palestine in 1948" . . . . blah blah blah . . . these Palestinian families "have been forced to take refuge for a second time, ironically, at a Baghdad sports club also called Haifa."
