Bernard Lewis shared some of his thoughts on Annapolis with us. He explains very concisely what the unique position of the Palestinians is among the war-refugees of the twentieth century - a position that has been imposed on them largely by their Arab and Muslim 'brothers' and that hardly serves the interest of the Palestinians themselves - and why hardly anyone who supports a two-state solution to the conflict can support the demand for the "return" of those refugees into Israel itself ( i.e. Israel within its 1967 borders ). PS: Lewis, who has had a tremendous career and expertise, certainly is not averse to controversies. Still, many of those who love to attack him are not less, if not much more biased than he is.
