The Arab refugee problem is no longer the principal obstacle to peace between Israel and the Arab states. This was indicated in the recent U.N. Palestine debate. The most basic change is that the problem is no longer primarily one of emergency relief, of providing food, shelter and clothing for hundreds of thousands of people in immediate danger of famine and epidemic. More sophisticated measures are required today than simple emergency relief. The greatest need is for more economic security and social acceptance of the refugees than they have yet attained despite the great material improvements in their life since they arrived as indigents. Americans often hope to resolve international problems through some makeshift mechanical device. The Arab-Israel dispute is too complex and its emotions too deep to yield to such an approach. The problem is not one made up of specific issues.
