    You must agree that all the refugees from 1939 to 1948 which were displaced by WWII and its consequences shoul be the compensated. As e result of WWII Jewish refugees that moved from Europe to Israel until 1948 should be compensated for lost properties. From Poland alone ther were at least 250,000. from all Europe another 300,000. Frome Iraq, Egypt, rest of N. Africa another 800,000.. That exceeds the 600,000 Palestininas that run from Israel in 1948. Assume on the average 8 people per family hence 75,000 families. You think paying for 75,000 homes will satisfy Palestinians. Or Israel should pay the 5, million peopel that claim to be descendants of the 600,00o refugees. If that is the case then there were 35, Million Poles that have their properties and 6 million lives lost. Will Germany be obligated to pay for lost and damaged properties. After 1945 there was an astronomical ethnic cleansing of Germans from whats now Western Poland, East Prussia nd Sudeten (Now Czech Republic) Its documented that 9 Million Germans were expelled. Should Poland , Czech and Russia pay compensation to the descendants of 9 million Germans? Is it only the Palestinians that deserve compensation? Were does it stop?
