Joan Peters spent seven years researching history and asking a lot of questions like 'Who were the refugees? and why are they still in the camps?," for her book, "From Time Immemorial: The Origins of the Arab-Jewish Conflict over Palestine." According to Peters, the Middle East does not accept non-Muslim as equals. Peters explained, the Jews are not equals but rather they are 2nd class citizens.
