the Israeli government and its American Jewish allies insist that Palestinian refugees abandon hope of returning to their homeland.

This demand is drenched in irony, because no people in human history have clung as stubbornly to the dream of return as have Jews.

But Jews have passed down our identity as refugees for 2,000 years.
