You wrote "THAT THERE WILL BE NO RIGHT OF RETURN for the so-called displaced Palestinians. Period.".

It has been 62 years now. In another 10 years, almost 100% of the people who left in 1948 war will be dead; so the right of return is a dead issue for the people who left. Their offspring born outside of Israel have no right of return.
