Importing Blogger blogs with their comments
The King of Fools had some really handy instructions but I don't think he was aware that Blogger has comment tags, so I modified his excellent template to include Blogger's comments. Hopefully this will work. Modded template past the jump...

Return where?
From FrontPage, The right of return

...



This discussion on the “right of return? within the academic hallways is based on a highly specific reading of history, one that assumes an Israeli responsibility for creating the refugee problem via “ethnic cleansing.? Restitution from the allegedly guilty party involves the return of the refugees and their descendants.

...



Palestinians present this “right? as one that will not challenge the Jewish demographic majority of the State of Israel. Salman Abu Sitta, author of The Palestinian Right of Return -- Sacred, Legal and Practical, claims, “the Jewish areas will not be affected at all. Theoretically, the Jews will not even feel their presence. If all of the Lebanese and Gaza refugees return, their number will be equal to that of the Russian Jews who immigrated to Israel since 1989.?[vii]



This line, however, is fabricated for sale to the West. The real Arab position is quite different, according to Ralph Galloway, a former United Nations administrator dealing with Palestinians in Jordan: “The Arab states do not want to solve the refugee problem. They want to keep it as an open sore, as an affront to the United Nations and as a weapon against Israel. Arab leaders don’t give a damn whether the refugees live or die.?[viii] They do give a damn whether Israel lives or dies, however.



Arafat rejected Camp David II to maintain the situation where acceptance of Israel is deferred, the conflict kept alive and Israel is always occupying Palestinians. Otherwise, the two-state solution would have moved from possible to probable. The Arab-Israeli conflict might inadvertently have ended with Israel intact – something that Palestinians have been taught for generations to view as failure.



Distorting the real, empirical history to “discover? alleged rights creates an on-going, unjustified animosity to Israel, and continues to lead even well-meaning Palestinians down a path of false hopes built on false foundations, and thus defers the possibility of an enduring peace settlement that would be of benefit to all.



Uncritical support for the ‘right of return,’ and the obfuscation of its much worse intended effects, is actually but one symptom of the radicalization of our universities, and permeates the entire field. As long as such dangerous and ultimately unfounded tropes are held as self-evident truth, our government – and our students – will look in vain to the universities for constructive counsel and non-partisan scholarship.

The killing of more than 320 children, parents and teachers during the bloody end to a 53-hour school siege left barely a family untouched in the small Russian town of Beslan.



"Everyone in this town has lost someone," said Alan, looking for news of his sister who had been at the school. "What they say on television is a lie. There could be 600 dead."



In the nearby city of Vladikavkaz, hundreds queued up outside the overwhelmed morgue for the gruesome task of identifying their relatives.



Dozens of stretchers lay outside with corpses on them, their skin the color of powdered milk. Most were children or women, naked bodies covered with black tarpaulin or plastic sheets.



Relatives accompanied by nurses picked their way past rows of stretchers, holding handkerchiefs or gauze masks to their faces against the stench.



At the main hospital in Vladikavkaz, one of several dealing with gunshot wounds and burns among victims, the head doctor, Uruzmag Dzhanyev, said 250 children were being treated.



"Many children -- even those who live -- will be invalids. Some do not have eyes," he told Reuters.



Anger among the relatives mounted over the silence from Moscow during the siege and President Vladimir Putin's lightning visit early on Saturday under cover of darkness.



"Putin came here at four this morning," said Boris, whose neighbor and all her family disappeared.



"He saw no one and talked to no one. He just wanted to show the world how young and handsome he is but he hasn't helped and he won't help and he can't stop this happening again."



"His visit was a publicity stunt," said Zoya, who could not find her niece. "They should have done everything so that not even one child died. But they didn't."



Russian officials said they had not planned to storm the school building, but were forced to do so when the rebels opened fire on fleeing children.



"My daughter escaped but my son, no one knows what happened to him. We have checked the hospitals, we have asked everyone, but we have no news," said one woman. "The bodies must be so burned that we may never recognize them."



The main doors were plastered with the names of victims and 15 color photographs showing headshots of wounded children in hospital beds, too young to explain who they were.



They appeared on the lists with brief descriptions like "unconscious girl" and "boy who cannot speak."



Despair and Anger
