    If you were a Palestinian living in Gaza, and your 15 year old son told you he planned to join the border riots, what would you tell him?

    Ms. Labrea,

    Reminds me of the old joke:

    Two Palestinian women were talking at the water well, showing picture of their kids. The first one says "this one is Mahmud, he martyred himself last September, and this is Mohammad, who just martyred himself."

    The second woman sighed and said "they blow up so fast these days."

    No.

    The right of return is also enshrined in international law. The UN General Assembly in December 1948 adopted Resolution 194, which called for the return of Palestinian refugees to their homes. In June 1967, the UN Security Council passed Resolution 237 calling on Israel to facilitate the return of refugees, thereby including those forced out by Israel’s seizure of land days earlier.

    Israel continues to violate its obligations under international law. It has no intention of correcting or addressing the historic injustices that created the Palestinian refugee problem, and the right of return has been one of the main issues preventing a just settlement of the conflict. In the rare instances that Israel even considers Palestinian statehood, it regards the right of return as out of the question.

    That's in terrible taste, but I have to respect the pun.

    Jordan is the Palestinian homeland. So wouldn't that be where they want to return?

    The link pretty much nails the reason peace can't be reached:

    The right of return, a cornerstone of the Palestinian struggle, is the principle that Palestinian refugees have an inalienable right to return to their homeland. This includes those who fled or were forced to flee in 1948 as well as in 1967, along with their descendants.
    If the descendants of those who fled in 1948 are admitted into Israel, then Israel would immediately lose its Jewish majority, and the region would become yet-another Islamic Republic. As evidenced in other posts, Jewish people are not welcome in Islamic Republics (or Islam-majority nations). Therefore, "right-of-return" would mean the guaranteed end of Israel.

    "Right of return" is effectively asking Israel to dissolve itself as a nation. That's why "right-of-return" is a non-starter.
    Thanks from Wonderer and pragmatic
