Olmert opens the door to the 'right of return'

Now that he's made plans to weaken our military defenses, Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert is going to work to make sure that we are overwhelmed demographically by the descendants of 'Palestinians' who left Israel in 1948 'returning.'

For the first time in the history of the State of Israel, Olmert has agreed to allow descendants of 'Palestinians' who left in 1948 to 'return' to the State of Israel. He has opened Pandora's box.
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s latest “good will gesture” to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has smashed Israel's long-standing policy rejecting the “right of return” for the generations of descendants of Arabs who fled Israel during the 1948 War of Independence.

Olmert decided to allow the immigration into Judea and Samaria of 41 Iraqi descendants of such Arabs who lived in British Mandatory Palestine. All have claimed to have family members living in the PA-controlled areas.

Government officials assured reporters that each of the would-be Arab immigrants would undergo a thorough security check before entering the Jewish State. Officials added that a smaller group of Iraqis who asked to be allowed to join family members living in Gaza was rejected.

Arab countries have long demanded that Israel absorb more than five million Arabs from foreign countries who claim to be descendants of the approximately half a million Arabs who fled during the 1948 war in Israel, when the surrounding Arab countries tried to destroy the nascent Jewish state.
The article doesn't say why these 'Palestinians' are suddenly coming here now from Iraq, but I am going to be that this has something to do with it. My guess is that the 'Palestinians' are those living in limbo on the border between Iraq and Jordan, and that Olmert's 'gesture' is going to save the rump king Abdullah from an embarrassing situation in which he refuses to admit 'Palestinians' from Iraq to his 'country' which is 70% 'Palestinian.' At the rate we're going, maybe Olmert will agree to take the rest of the 'Palestinians' from 'Jordan' too.
