25. But let me ask you
Do you want to live in Poland? Where is your home? Does it occur that for Palestinians who were born after 1948, may of whom have never lived in Israel, that Israel is a foreign country, a place the really old folks talk about? Not to slight Israel, but who says that most Palestinians want to live there? Israel is a place that they have been taught is enemy territory, with people that they have been taught their entire lives want to harm them and vis versa as their neighbors? Excuse me but in the words of Hommie the Clown "I don't think so"

Now this my opinion, however I have seen at least one poll here that stated most Palestinians would rather have some type of monetary compensation, and that seems a possible premise, but the idea that most Palestinians would come flooding into Israel seems hyperbolic or almost arrogant in a "it's so much better in Israel, why wouldn't they?" sort of way.
