Aluf Benn is exaggerating the significance of yesterday's events. He is also exaggerating when he talks of a 'nightmare' scenario of 'refugees' walking to Israel's borders. First of all the only real 'refugees' are by this time in senior citizens' homes or perhaps a better world. Some of their descendants who the U.N. classifies as 'refugees' in a way it classifies no other descendants of refugees decide to make the walk they can be stopped in a way which of course will provide terrible public relations to Israel. But terrible public relations events' are occurring now every day in the Arab world and they do not necessarily change any reality. Israel has to protect its people, its borders, its sovereignty . It is infinitely more decent to its Arab minority than any Arab regime is to any of its minorities. Anyone who really understands the situation truly will understand Israel is defending itself against a global effort to delegitimize it and destroy it. '
