    Yes Hans, any Jew can return. That was and still is the purpose of zionism: establish a safe haven for persecuted Jews in the diaspora. It is a desperate measure to escape genocide taken by desperate people against their own regilious or secular beliefs. And it will be needed until the last antisemite has disappeared from the face of earth. You find it racist, unjust and immoral because Palestinians that fled or were expelled in 47 cannot return? Yeah, why would israeli Jews refuse to live with a majority of good, tolerant and peaceful neighbours as Palestinians? I'm sure *you* would be delighted to have another batch of peace-loving muslims settlers. But, wait a second, then why does *your* generous european country not open its borders to every lost tribe on earth? Is it racism? If you don't understand what I'm saying, don't panic: it is normal for an antisemite to be so fucking stupid.
