Reader comment on item: Ending the Palestinian "Right of Return"
in response to reader comment: Amazement

The Palestinians certainly have a right of return, to their families in Egypt and Jordan with whom there is clear familial ties. There was not a Palestine prior to 1967 when the Jordanians held the area, and no one was clamoring to return to anywhere then. Why should it be different now?
