is just that it is a right of those who were dispossessed during the creation of the Jewish state. It is a right guaranteed by the international community. It is also a right that the Palestinians recognise cannot be implemented in full. But the onus is with Israel, not Palestinians. What has Israel done, since its creation to defuse this tension? To admit their substantial role in creating the refugee problem? What have they offered or countered to the Palestinians? Have they expressed any sense of remorse of given a apology? Have they offered compensation? Have they entered into discussions on the question with a proposal of their own or have they done nothing for decasdes but deny, deny, deny, deny. So, Mr. Strenger, the problem is not with the Palestinians but with Israel that has shown absolutely no flexibility or even recognition of the problem which is a core issue to be settled. As for Hamas, they offered Israel a long term hudna, a state of non-belligerency. Hardly ideal, but a start that could defuse the tensions. Israel refused, preferring the divide and rule policy of pitting Hamas against the PA.
