    Sometimes when Palestinian Arabs talk about "their homes", the ones from which they fled, that they want to return, you have to ask some technical questions. Once upon a time housing units were smaller, more like the eariy ones that were built during the 50's two rooms and kitchen, at best. Eariler, bor economic, reasons, and others, in the Palestinian Arab sector, unless you you had "deep pockets", you put six and seven people in nothing more than ficty square meters--that was the house from which you fled. Even in the refugee camps, the units are closer to three rooms and a larger kitchen. Would someone that lives in something larger, give up the place where they live for something smaller? I doubt it. You cannot turn the clock back, and sometimes, even if your "memories" make you homesick, where you are now is better, even if it's not your "homeland" anymore. The pols can rant about the Palestinian nation, but I fear, most Palestinians, however patriotic, and nationalistic, know what is really good for them. You get on with life, and accept the changes, to the extent you are treated fairly. Trouble is that it's a mix of your own somewhat dishonest leadership and the "other side" that is perhaps more likely to deal with issue honestly simply out of necessity to do the right thing.
