"It is the duty of Israeli leaders to explain to public opinion, clearly and courageously, a certain number of facts that are forgotten with time. The first of these is that there is no Zionism, colonialization or Jewish State without the eviction of the Arabs and the expropriation of their lands."
-- Yoram Bar Porath, Yediot Aahronot, of 14 July 1972.

That every Palestinian has a legitimate, individual right to return to his or her original home and to absolute restitution of his or her property.
