    refugee must decide for himself. The right of return is legally an individual right, so has never been one that the PLO could give up on behalf of refugees. When you say that the PLO insists they make their own choice, you make it sound like a new hardline position, and it isn't - it has always been the case. But the PLO has consistently taken the position that in the context of a negotiated settlement, 194 can be implemented by having refugees choose from options that are heavily weighted in favor of compensation, in order to preserve the Jewish nature of the state of Israel. They can only do this in the context of a final status agreement, where the benefits of genuine independence balance the size of the concession in giving up a literal return. This is paralleled on the Israeli side by the issue of Jerusalem. Ultimately, Jerusalem will be shared, but no Israeli leader can say that except in the context of a final status agreement whose benefits make the major concessions bearable.
