    The RoR as envisioned by the Palestinians is not a right guaranteed by the international community. There is no legal document that supports it. (The Declaration of Human certainly doesn't support this case) The international consensus of for two states for two peoples based on the '67 lines; with no right of return. Most of the Palestinians fled or in some cases expelled to Jordan (although a large number went to Lebanon) and Gaza - that is still in Palestine so they are still in their country - no other people in the world have been given a right to return to individual properties, particulary when the became refugees as a result of conflict which they were party to and which they had a hand in starting. If the RoR gives the Palestinians rights no other people have ever been give-The UN has already changed the defintion of refugee just for them- it is unprecedented. Further you state that "It is also a right that the Palestinians recognise cannot be implemented in full." I wish that were true but Where is the evidence of that - is it the official policy of Fatah, of Hamas, of the majority of Palestinians - I think you just said it because you wish it to be so. The Palestinians and Jews were party to a civil war in Palestinine in 1947/1948 - if the Arabs had won the majority of Jews would have been kicked out, and that is the last you would have heard of it. The Palestinians and other Arabs objected to the partition resolution; that was their right to do so. If I had been Palestinians I might of resisted the partions resolution to; that doesn't mean the Jews were not within their rights to support it and fight for it, and do what was necessary to survive. Since neither side at the time had any interest in a bi national state; not the Zionist movement and not the Arab population, that really wasn't an option
