All this stuff of "longing to return" and so on is just words. The reality is that we needed a home country to prevent another Holocaust. I mean, I know that there are Zionists and right wing Jews and so on, but most of the people who left to Israel simply couldn't live in Europe any more. And who could blame them? In fact, if America or Canada had offered enough visas, many would have left for there. But there wasn't enough visas. With the Palestinians, it is different. If I am a Palestinian, and I live in an Arab country, and I was born in an Arab country, I wouldn't want to live in Israel where all that awaits me would be conflict, and mutual mistrust. I surely would want my property back, and clearly this needs to be settled. But calling for return of refugees is simply a call for war. Just imagine the sudden of influx of poor people with different language/culture. Here in the US, Mexicans, Whites, and Blacks hate each other enough without all the other issues...
