Reader comment on item: Calls to Settle Palestinians Living in Arab Countries

Submitted by ChrisLA (United States), Aug 13, 2009 at 11:28

Victor Hugo once wrote, "An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come." Just as the Jews who were expelled from Arab countries were absorbed by Israel, so should the "Palestinians" be absorbed by the Arab countries.

Give Israel its small scrap of land, pay for properties owned by the departing "Palestinians," recognize Israel as one of the most viable and prosperous states in the Middle East, and let peace prevail. In the long run, this will benefit all.
