    Kath, It seems to me the real "deaf and dumb " people maybe the Israelis not the Palestinians on the right of return. The right of return is a backbone of international law and it's a crime to deny refugees their right to return. Yet, it amazes me how you and others talk about being close to your Jewish roots and deny the Palestinian people their right to their homeland and roots. It seems like such an appalling double standard. Dutch P.S. Please note what the former Israeli Defense Minister said in 1969--at least he was being honest and "Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages. You do not even know the names of those Arab villages, and I do not blame you because geography books no long- er exist ... the Arab villages are not there either. Nahlal arose in the place of Mahhlul: Kibbutz Gvat in the place of Jibta; Kibbutz Sarid in the place of Hunelfs; and Kefar Yehushu'a in the place of Tal Al-Shuman. There is not a single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population". Moshe Dayan, 1969 . Dutch
