This is an interesting perspective, that maybe the real motivation for the 'Palestinian' obstinance and resistance, though predicated in arguments of 'right of return,' might actually be as mercenary as the institutionalist secularistic democrats' fascination of governmental leeches on tax money like that in the United States; after all, how do the 'Palestinian' leaders justify continuing paying families after jihadi attackers kill unless they are given those monies, like that just transferred. It reads like it's all about the money, not the martyrship they want others to believe: do we not believe?
