Without having read Part 2, I think I know where you are going. Arab states did not assimulate the 750,000 who left for whatever mixed reasons, for a two-fold concern. First, assimulation would have been a tacict recognition of Israel that was not destined to happen for decades to come. Second, the host states could not and still can not afford to assimulate the descendants. The State of Palestine cannot afford them either. They're going to be a fiscal basketcase for probibly another century. On the Isreali side, they were looking to attain a majority population and had the resources of worldwide Jewish charities to pick up the tab. Regardless of the particulars that got us here, the plight of the Palestinian Diaspora must be addressed in any final resolution. One floating plan that is earning consensus has the host countries absorbing up to a % of their own population, the bulk returning to the State of Palestine (the Jordan Valley) and a tolken amount returning to Israel.
