Negotiations at Madrid in 1991 failed to acknowledge the struggle of thousands of Palestinian refugees who were given Israeli citizenship in 1948, but are classified by the Jewish state as "Present Absentees." The situation for Palestinian refugees living inside Israel is not simply a question of demanding minority rights, but is part of the wider conflict, and thus must be addressed as part of a resolution.
