Once known as Deir Yassin today its a mental hospital and the other villages that have been demolished and sold to kibbutzim or developers to build luxury apartment blocks or the ones that have been demolished to build highways. Other than a few scattered buildings there is only one long deserted village left that remains intact in the whole country so other than a few scattered buildings all thats left of those places that the arabs love to wave their rusty old keys and call for a right of return to. Time for the arabs and everybody else to forget about those villages and accept they are some of the many places that have come and gone throughout history and they cannot live in the past, those idilic villages where everybody used to know each other and they grew nice flowers are gone and calling for a right of return won't bring them back because we are not going to change the present day reality.
