    "There is no way that will happen." - and what is "that", Lynn? "And yes, a sovereign country does have the right to say NO to anyone who wants to live there." - you are conflating the issue of sovereignty with the issue of the right of land ownership. They are two very different things. If an owner of a parcel of land is disppossed then they have a legitimate grievence, and that should be addressed. They want restitution by way of return to their land - unlikely. Monetary compenstation is much more realistic. But the real sticking point is that Israel flat out refuses to admit any culpability. While it so refuses then the issue is a festering sore, and Israel is simply being foolish. "The Arab States ejected their Jewish citizens. What is the difference?" - none, as I have said to others. But that is an issue between the disppossed Jews and those Arab states. It is nothing to do with the Pals, and does not affect the merits of THEIR case against the State of Israel
