Languages of publication
This article aims to draw attention, perception that refugees generally as a people passive, abrasion of specificity of culture, places and history, they do not necessarily have to reflect that. In the refugee camps sometimes arise very aware of their subjectivity refugee communities. Anthropologist Aristide Zolberg calls them "The New Palestinians", or "Refugee-Warriors". They create refugee identity and culture, aimed at returning to their country, to gain power, just like real Palestinians are threat to the existing political status quo and the existing borders and governments.
