    This entire situation has reduced itself to childish behaviour. Israel should freeze settlement building. That leaves no further excuses for the Palestinians. Israel's motive in having the Palestinians alone recognize Israel as a Jewish State is simple. The core of the State and its majority rule is based on a State for Jews where the rights of Jews can never be removed. The right of return which Palestinians seek would amount to a huge dilution of the Jewish electoral base and lead to Muslim or Arab rule. That could lead to laws and rules that would be dangerour for the Jewish population. NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN. As for the Palestinians that took off in 1948 and expect a right of return, lets set the precedent internationally. When every Jew that was force to leave Arab countries in 1948, and every Jew that lost their homes in Europe and Russia during WW2 get them back, then there can be a negotiating principle. Why don't the Arab countries absorb Palestinians into their societies and give them legitimate rights?? Because its better to keep them in refugee camps in the hope they can be dumped back onto the Israelis. The world is a rough place. The Arabs attacked many many times and lost. When the world becomes fair to millions that lose their homes to war, civil war, famine, and weather, then these points can be more seriously considered.
