CJ, - i'm joining hastaroth in asking about the number, ie a few thousands according to you, the pals claim w/reg. to ROR into israel proper. can you substantiate your claim that "the pals have only ever officially claimed RoR as per UN Conventions.."? which conventions exactly & where do you find that in concrete pal. claims that have been made? i consider it just an invention on your part as the whole ROR issue has been a problem & a stumbling block exactly because it involved hundreds of thousands of 'lineal descendants' /even millions. it would be nice if it was as you claim, but it wouldn't have been an issue at all in that case. again you seem to be on 'an island' as to a legal /factual assertion. the right the pals demand acknowledged has never been just about a few thousands old people. israel wouldn't see letting in such a limited number back in as a problem & it's indeed a real demographic threat they've been worried about.
