True, we must all respect and abide by the rules of wherever we happen to be living; there is no argument in that. However, that makes me no less of a true Palestinian. Living in England does not make one English, but British (that goes a long way in identifying identity lineage) - you appear to have overlooked that distinction rather conveniently. Incidentally, if you live in the UK you are termed a ?Resident? - only when you are naturalised can you be ?called British?. In any event, I am not now addressing the true reasons for the Palestinian diaspora ? but rather merely that it occurred. You say ?Once out, always OUT? ? suffice it to suggest that your own Jewish history has proved that so very wrong. Forgive me, but it is you who must educate yourself that reliance upon power and dominance to deny others their identity is never self-serving in the long term. Acknowledgment and tolerance is. Simply, the entire issue is that of inter-family dispute over inheritance (resulting in one to deny the other?s claims) - I, a Palestinian, am as much a seed of Abraham as you are (you chose Judaism and I Islam and others Christianity, etc.). The sooner you educate yourself of that the sooner we both will attain the durable aspiration we both seek. Lecture me not on what you wish me to be, it will be more useful to hear what I believe I am (a Palestinian through and through).
