Quote of the Day

"If Jews can return to Israel after two-thousand years, Palestinians must have the right after sixty."

- Hamas chairman Khaled Mashaal
Mashaal is being more than generous is offering up this comparison, because it isn't just the length of time that distinguishes the two groups. Palestinians who want the right of return want to actually return to a place where either they themselves, or at most their parents or grandparents, actually lived. Many of the Jews "returning" to Israel have no connection to Israel whatsoever in their past, and some of them weren't even Jews until days before arriving in Israel.
