    Howdy Ernie; I have no objection to the diaspora Palestinians returning to the Palestinian Territories provided that they stay on their side of the fence and if it's OK with the PA. We need to remember that for 90% of the diaspora Palestinian refugees this will not be a "return"; it will be a "first arrival" and that the PA already has 0.5 million Palestinian refugees within its juristiction and what are they going to do with 3.5 million more mouths to feed? If Israel compensates the original group of Palestinian refugees (or their heirs) for their property losses, then it would only be fair if the Arab countries compensated the Jewish refugees (or their heirs) for their property losses too. I don't know what Israel intends to do about the Jordan Valley. Personally, I'm in favor of the security barrier as the border (at least temporarily) which will not include the Jordan Valley or the northwestern shore of the Dead Sea.
