was a fundamental part of the creation of Israel. Ponder that. Israel's unwillingness to let Palestinians back shows that they needed to expel them from the beginning. This alone undermines the legitimacy of the state, and of claims that their 'flight' was an unfortunate result of war. The fact that the door was slammed shut, and remains shut, shows that cleansing was always on the agenda. But .. back to practical matters ... recognizing a right of return (and of course a right of return for Jews robbed of their property by Arab states) is not the end of the world, because most Palestinian refugees wouldn't take it. It could be recognized as a moral right, without it actually occurring en masse, and threatening a two state solution.
