Washington Report on Middle East Affairs;Dec2010, Vol. 29 Issue 9, p15
The author presents his opinion on Israel's occupation of Palestine. He highlights the history of Israel's occupation which has conquered 78 percent of Palestine. He puts the number of Palestinian refugees as of mid-2008 at 6,600,000. He stresses the Palestinian's right of return which the latter describe as sacred, legal and feasible. He considers the return as manageable. He believes that the cure to the ills that inflicted the holy land is to remove all vestiges of racism, apartheid, occupation and oppression.
