    saeb erekat's 10 december article in "the guardian" makes it abundantly clear that the palestinians are unwilling to renounce the so-called "right of return." the idea that several generations of descendents should "inherit" the appellation of "refugee" is a sheer invention by the palestinians and their arab supporters. no other people have ever been accorded this so-called "right of return" into a foreign country not their own. millions of people, world wide, have been absorbed by hoste countries and given political and social rights. the arabs, however, had resolved in 1950 to deny palestinians their rights to citizenship and political/social rights. this arab league resolution had for sole purpose the destruction of the state of israel. there can be no resolution to this conflict as long as the palestinians and their arab supporters keep insisting on flooding israel with millions of "refugees."
