If anyone should be compensated 60 years later, it is Israel – which lost 1% of its population in the 1948 war (demographically equivalent to three million Americans) and has suffered irreparable damage from the relentless wars and barbaric mass-murder bombings since then. There is unfortunately no “right of return” for those who have lost their lives because of the Arab decisions of 1948 and thereafter.

Late last year, I was flying from Los Angeles to San Jose – a trip I have made many times in the course of my professional career. Over the years, I have watched the San Jose airport transform itself – from a one-building terminal with rental cars parked on the curb to an international airport with rental car facilities much larger than the entire airport I first visited many years ago.
