I think monetary compensation is the best and most moral way of resolving the problem of the Palestinian Diaspora. However, that would also require the Arab societies that host them to grant them a real opportunity to integrate fully into their adopted societies. All the same, I wonder if this would ever be accepted. What troubles me here is what always troubles me about the Palestinians: They are offered some positive options--even Gaza represented the promise of a new beginning--and they reject them out of a desire to perpetuate the conflict in the hopes of getting it all. I would love to use compromise and diplomacy to resolve this dilemma, but that also requires a real partner to negotiate with. Saddly, so far I don't see that in the Palestinians or in the Arabs in general.
