After decades of telling their refugees that they will eventually return to their homes in what is now Israel, do you seriously think the Palestinians leaders can then turn around and tell their people that their supposed suffering was a "negotiating card" so that other Palestinians can get a state? They can not lie to their people the way Israeli leaders lie to their population. Any Palestinian leader who agreed to such a thing would be condemned for eternity as a traitor to Islam and the Arab world. Sadat was assassinated for making peace with Israel and any Palestinian leader who gave up the right of return would also be liquidated. Arafat told Clinton that is what would happen to him. They can not give up the demand for implementation of the 'right of return' and so there will be no peace agreement and no Palestinian state will arise. Too bad Strenger and Eldar.
