The NY Times. You have to see it to believe it:

"A Palestinian Clings to His Dream of Going Back Home" by Greg Myre
It is getting late and I'm tired. If I think about this tonight, I will write only a string of curse words.
"Mustafa Ghwaleh, 66, has lived in the same tidy house for more than half a century, building it with his own sweat to accommodate his 8 children and 10 grandchildren, several of them still living at home. Despite a house that reflects decades of loving care, Mr. Ghwaleh still describes himself as a refugee in a temporary camp.On Thursday, he settled into his living room couch with a cup of sweetened tea and scolded President Bush for suggesting that Palestinian refugees should prepare for a future in a truncated Palestinian state and give up the notion of returning to their old land, which is now part of Israel."
Here's the link.
