Mass Expulsions are Inhumane and are No Basis for Peace

The predominant conception of Palestinian statehood is premised on the idea of expelling up to 600 000 indigenous Jews from their homes. This is inhumane and furthermore unrealistic. This is an indigenous population that has restored its ancient residence and that cannot once more be revoked by cruel deportation as was done by the Romans. The Jews have returned to their lands to remain there forever. Judea is the very cradle of Jewish civilization and to imagine that indigenous Jews would be deported once more from Judea is unimaginable, this will never happen. Mass expulsion and population exchange are distinctly outdated and certainly inhumane as tools for conflict resolution. These tools do not belong in the 21st century.
