Since when does giving a people residency of a State, with the option of applying for citizenship WHENEVER they please to do so equivalent to "ethnic cleansing"? You are probably not aware of this, but ALL Arab East Jerusalem residents are entitled to Israeli Citizenship if they chose to apply for it.

You do a dis-service to those really affected by such a phenomenon simply by spinning the true meaning of these words to fit your agenda.
