Just because you have a right to do something, it doesn't mean you have a right to do anything else you want while you're doing it. As Arens knows and would concede, the right to enter a place or to purchase land doesn't come with the right to, say, rape or enslave the other people there. While that example is not real, some of us also happen to believe that this right doesn't include the right to, say, tax the other people and not allow them a voice in how the taxes are used, or to deny them their own right to purchase state land. To end the previous abusive arrangement per se would not be "ethnic cleansing", if the Jews are allowed to stay and live in the same conditions as the Palestinians, or if the Palestinians are granted the same rights as the Jews. Arens is aware of all this and therefore his plea is a (not-very-skillful) piece of demagoguery.
