It is amazing that a law for Jews who have not lived in the region for upwards of 1500 years is fine with you (I presume) no matter who it displaced, yet a law of return for people who actually dwelt on the land within living memory is a plot to destroy Israel.

My friend's grandfather welcomed Jews to that region and taught them how to farm the land under different conditions to those they were used to, at a time when it was fashionable to throw rocks at them in Europe or steal their property and sell it to whatever greedy person came along (as one of my german friend's grandfathers actually did), or even fill ovens with them... bit of a contrast. He was driven from his home and died in exile, his descendants will not tend their ancesoral lands or graves. All his children want to do is share the land, yet, you their spokesman truly know the deepest wishes of their heart.

Your hypocrisy is astounding.
