Fine with me but it negates Israel's right of return

Reader comment on item: [UNRWA:] The Refugee Curse

Submitted by Susan Kerin (United States), Aug 22, 2003 at 14:31

With regard to Pipes' statute of limitation philosphy (i.e, that all rights to return are null and void when the parents die), I'm fine with that. But, of course, it would also apply to Israelis who claim a "right of return" based on a rationale that they might have had relatives living on the land 4,000 years ago. I presume most of those original refugees are deceased as well. Regards...Susan
