There is a fourth option. Peace keeping forces in a unified Palestine that offers a right to return and citizenship for all displaced Palistinians similare to that which Jews enjoy in Israel.

OK, I just came up with a 5th option:

5) The rest of the Muslim world becomes more secular are stops caring about the Palestinians and without that support, Israel continues on with the status quo, but with fewer attacks.

I do not necessarily think that what happened immediately after WWII was fair. But I am a realist who understands that you cannot put pieces back where they were 70 years ago any more than you can put the pieces of a broken glass back together.

Compensation is viable alternative. Right to return, while you may believe is fairer, is not viable.

The blast shattered windows on the bus, which was driving along a tree-lined street next to Israel's huge...
