what rights do the Palestinians actually have? I am not asking that in a rhetorical sense, but in earnest.
"The zionists claim Palestine on the grounds that at one time, more than two thousand years ago, the Jews had a kingdom in part of it. Were this argument to be taken as the basis for settling international issues, a dislocation of immeasurable magnitude would take place. It would mean the re-drawing of the entire map of the world. It has been said that you cannot set back the hands of the clock of history by twenty years. What should be said when an effort is made to set the clock of history back twenty centuries in an attempt to give away country on the grounds of a transitory historical association?"
