Olmert, like the rest of the Israeli Left, assumes the Palestinian refugees will be reasonable (as he sees it) and would prefer to live in the US and not want to live in Israel. WRONG! The refugee problem is NOT a "humanitarian" one. As the Palestinians see it , it is POLITICAL. All refugees will be told to DEMAND return to Israel. As the Arab world sees it, it is treason for a refugee to accept any other solution because it would weaken the ongoing Arab war against Israel. Islamic fatwas would be issued saying that a refugee that did not demand return would be a traitor to Islam. The terms Olmert things are reasonable and are totally unacceptable to the Palestinians. For example they will INSIST on complete sovereignity over east Jerusalem INCLUDING the Jewish holy sites like the Western Wall. The Arabs/Palestinian do NOT recognize ANY Jewish rights in the county. That is why there will never be a peace agreement.
