It is simply journalistic fraud to declare that the Palestinian "right-of-return" to Israel is a "minor problem", while the major obstacle is border changes beyond the Green Line. The proof is that under the Clinton negotiations of 2000, the parties had readily agreed on Israeli retention of 5-7% of the W. Bank with the main Israeli blocs and most of "East" Jerusalem, NEGOTIATION BLEW UP OVER ARAFAT'S INSISTENCE ON "RIGHT OF RETURN" -- a well established fact. So where does Rubenstein find support for his idiotic and bogus claim? Israeli retention of some land to create the "secure and recognized borders free from threats and acts of force" per UN242 is legitimate. Israelis have compromised on a Palestinian state on lands of Eretz Israel, the Palestinians must compromise on their claim to 100.0% of territory east of Green Line. Israeli annexation of Israeli inhabited land is a quid pro quo for allowing a Palestinian state at all, rights they gave up when they rejected the 1947 UN Plan.
