Right of Return for "Palestinians"

Reader comment on item: Bush Promotes a Palestinian "Right of Return"

Submitted by Kafir (United States), Jan 14, 2008 at 16:14

What about the 'right of return' for the more than 800,000 Jews forced out of Arab countries during this time period? What of their descendents? Why are they not considered refugees as well? They obviously cannot live freely without fear of harm in their former homelands, so who will address this? What compensation will they receive?

This is exactly why this should be considered a population transfer, and Arab countries should re-settle their brethren in Arab/Muslim countries, at their own expense, giving them full rights as citizens of those countries.

The 'right of return' of so-called "Palestinians" and their progeny is a ridiculous and illogical concept! I'm sure that most people don't even know that the term "Palestinian" was used exclusively for Jews in the past.
