    Abbas: a state AND unlimited right of return

    From news article:

    The Palestinians will continue to demand the right of return for millions of refugees to their original homes inside Israel even after the UN recognizes a Palestinian state along the June 4, 1967, lines, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Sunday.

    Responding to legal experts’ claims that a Palestinian state could affect the status of the PLO as the “sole legitimate representative” of the Palestinians, Abbas told the Jordanian newspaper Ad-Dustour: “The PLO represents all the Palestinians, not only those in the Palestinian territories and whose number is estimated at 4 million. The PLO represents all 8 million Palestinians in the world.”

    Re: Abbas: a state AND unlimited right of return

    Here is another thought about the so called right of return demand by the Palestinian Arabs ...

    Compare their ardour to "return" to live amongst Jews to the reluctance of Jewish refugees to return to Arab countries from which the Jews were expelled by systematic persecution and pogroms.

    So if the Arab claims of Jewish atrocities and deliberate expulsions of Arabs by Jews in 1947/48 would be true, then wouldn't the Arabs too be reluctant to return and live amongst Jews? Yet they are not fearful. Isn't that a bit fishy?
    Idealism increases in direct proportion to one's distance from the problem.

    What "right of return"? Return to what?
