There is no artificial "oath" which can make each and every citizen behave the same, nor should there be. The reality is that a substantial "right of return" will destroy Israel as a home for the Jewish People in one or two generations. A "realistic" number of Arabs who can justify their connections to and belief in Israel as their home should be allowed to be Israeli. This type of policy is generally accepted by most Western Democracies. In a democracy, good governments generally continue in power for a reasonable time. When times change and governments can not or do not adjust to the circumstances which challenge them, they should leave. Whatever government and its policies will lead Israel into it next stage of development and growth, it must be fair to both the idea of Israel and the reality of Arab Israelis. Nothing else is survivable.
