"And that`s how the PLO regards the "agreed upon" language of the Arab plan, ie as giving Israel the final decision over which - and how many - refugees to accept." I'm sorry , but you are incorrect. The PLO, now more than ever,is adamant that the 'refugees' themselves must have the final choice whether to 'return' or be compensated. Just make your comment to any Falestinian, and I guarantee either laughter or a nod in agreement from a Hamas supporter. That ship has sailed, there's no more room for this kind of naievety.
