    Hey Jeff, It seems I may have the hiccups again. You are correct with your observations. A more proper wording of what is called the "Right of Return" is more accurately descirbed as a "just settlement". From the Beirut Declaration, "Achievement of a just solution to the Palestinian Refugee problem to be agreed upon in accordance with UN General Assembly Resolution 194." The non-binding resolution does offer compensation in lieu of returning to Israel proper, in a libral interpretation. The international community embraces the "Right of Return" to a Palestinian state, which is why the Jordan Valley is needed by Palestine. With the declaration, originally called the Saudi Initiative, then Crown Prince Abdullah Abdullaziz al Saud was hailed internationally for his "break-through" offering. Thanx for keeping me honest.
