"So why are you pontificating about international legality in all your messages?" - Because Laws Matter, Daniel. The powerful can always trample them, but then they are choosing to Live By The Sword, with all that implies... "If Palestinian refugees have the right to compensation Jewish refugees who were robbed of their posessions have also right to compensation" - I have said that MANY TIMES. Go back and actually READ my posts. "That may be ridiculous for you" - I have ALREADY said that - every dispossed person has the right to compensation, and each case stands or falls on its own merits. "International law-if there is one-" - OH PLEASE, SPARE ME - "-cannot apply only to one people" - I HAVE SAID THIS. Each case stands and falls on its own merits. Sheesh! YOUR argument is hypocritical i.e. the law applies to *everyone*, but *I* don't have to apply it, coz' I'm pissed off with the way Jordan/Syria/whatever treated MY friends.
