1) No one should be able to be evicted from a home to which they have acquired property rights via the government that was in power at the time they went to live in the home. (It's not clear from this article whether the evicted family actually acquired property rights in this case, but this should include property rights acquired by Palestinians during Jordan's rule, if they were acquired, because the people who acquired them were acting in good faith. The same should hold for Jews who acquired rights to abandoned Palestinian property.) The disputed property should be transferred in TABU to the current residents, providing they can show that they acquired property rights in good faith from the government that was in control at the time. 2) The previous owners, who abandoned the property, should be compensated for it a current market value by the government which took control of the abandoned property and handed it out instead of preserving the rights of the original owners. That is, Jordan should compensate the original Jewish owners in this case, and Israel should compensate the original Arab owners in Jaffa, Haifa, etc 3) However, since Israel absorbed an equal or even larger number of Jews who were forced to leave Arab countries without their property as a result of 1948 war than there were Arabs who left Israel as a result of the same war, and since Israel conveyed citizenship upon and invested a large number of resources in absorbing and resettling this group instead of leaving them in refugee camps, while the Arab states did not, such an arrangement should be contingent upon Mizrachi Jews who fled Arab states without their property also being compensated by the respective Arab countries that they left.
