    In Doron Rosenblum's lovely article ... he writes so well ... he mentions this hilarity called 'right of return'. Does this right also extend to others who were displaced in the 1940s? The ost Germans in 1945/6? the Karachi Hindus in 1947/8? Innumerable eastern european sub-groups shunted hither and yon 1946/48? No, Only the sacred Palestinians are to be relieved of the hard burden of history that often follows the losing of a war. All the other non-sacred groups still have to drink the dregs and bitter herbs of defeat. I cannot understand why Israel doesn't pick a thousand of these alleged 'Palestinian refugees' and let them back into the country with the invitation to go back to their towns/villages whence they were cast out/ and from which they chose to run away in 1948 and resume their lives in these towns and villages. It would make great TV as the channels followed them around for weeks on end. Put them to the test.
