If the people who were run out of Hebron in 1929 wanted to reclaim their property, a fairly good case would be made that they either should be allowed to, or should be compensated for it. Of course, Israel would never accept the logical implication of that, namely that all the Palestinians that were run out of Palestine in 1948 would have the same right. But in any case, the settlers in Hebron aren't the previous owners of that property. They're operating on the principle that if one Jew once owned a property, it automatically and forever belongs to any other Jew who wants to claim it. Again, they'd never accept the same principle if it applied to Arabs and the property they lost in 1948.
