The parties to the conflict will never make peace between one another. They`ve been trying that for 60 years and nothing has come if it. A settlement must be IMPOSED upon the parties by the entity that created the problem, namely the United Nations, which created Israel in 1948. It is indisputable that in the creation of Israel Arabs were displaced. It is unjust and unfair to take people`s property for no just compensation. The UN must establish a Middle East Compensation Commission to adjudicate claims from everybody, including Jews, who lost property as a result of the UN`s creation of Israel. Just compensation needs to be paid in exchange for a Release of Claims. If you lost your property and had to live in squalor you too would harbor resentment. It`s nonsense that Arabs left voluntarily. Leaving is not the same as abandoning and disclaiming rights to property, which in the western world is a sacrosanct right. We all leave our homes. When we get back they`re still ours.
