ABSTRACT
The article discusses whether reason could be the basis for dialogue in the Middle East. According to the author, the question of the Palestinian right to return to their homeland has been the most contentious issue in the Middle East with many Israelis refusing to even use the expression "right of return," fearing that acknowledging it as a right could commit them to its legitimacy.
