It actually does call for a "right of return"; implicitly, when it calls for a "just solution" to the descendants of the arab refugees. If it hadn't made any mention of this "just solution" you could plausibly argue that all they want is a particular border (1967).

I haven't heard - and this is no accident - of any of those Arab countries stating that they don't insist on a "right of return" and barring their saying they don't insist on it, it's logical to suppose they do and that this and only this would constitute, in their eyes, a "just solution" to the "palestinian refugee" issue.

Do you really think that if none of them said they don't require a "right of return" it's because they were too busy to mention that startling fact? Rather, it's because they knew if they mention it explicitly nobody would pay any attention to their so-called peace plan.
