    "Refugees or displaced persons might have a right (although in practice rarely if ever enforced) to return to a homeland or a place where their people are sovereign,..." "where their people are sovereign", you say. "Their people". Hmmm. Worth examining, that phrase... These Arabs were living on that land. The Jews were not living on that particular land. Fighting. Killing. People running this way and that. And when the smoke clears the Jews are sitting on that land, and the Arabs were Elsewhere. You are discriminating against them not because of their legal status, but because of their ethnicity, yet Israel is most definitely not supposed to be an apartheid state. These refugees want to come back to their land. They want to come back and be Israeli citizens, and nobody - but nobody - is claiming otherwise. That is, they want to be part of "their people" - the people of Israel. But you say NO, coz they are the wrong religion. Yet that's not apartheid, right?
