    Professor Kassis' analysis of why Israel does not allow the villagers to return is one of the most profound comments on Israeli motives I have read for some time. There will be no end to the conflict until Israelis (and Jews everywhere) recognize that an injustice was inflicted on the Palestinians, following the Holocaust: for which they were in no way responsible. The need of perennially persecuted Jews for a safe haven must be reconciled with the right of the Palestinians to their own state. (Until the Holocaust, the Jews were a minority in Palestine). But this cannot happen until Israel recognizes - and offers compensation for- the Palestinian tragedy, and also respects its own laws where the Palestinians are concerned. Ikrit is a symbol of its refusal to do either.
