      U.S. DEPORTING PALESTINIANS
      Reuters, 7/29/03

      In its post-September 11 push to close potential immigration
      loopholes, the United States has charted new routes to expel
      Palestinians, even though they consider themselves stateless.

      Fifteen Palestinians were put in handcuffs on planes by U.S.
      officials in December and May and deported to the West Bank and Gaza
      Strip with the help of Jordan, Egypt and Israel.

      Deporting people of Palestinian origin is more complicated than it is
      for other nationalities because they do not have a state to call
      their own. Other Palestinians who are in detention and facing
      deportation hearings fear they will be next to be sent into the
      Israeli-Palestinian war zoneĀ…

      While efforts to create a Palestinian state alongside Israel under
      the roadmap peace plan are inching along, some Palestinians are
      caught in a clamp between the conflict and U.S. policy following
      terror strikes.
