The latest published Near East Consulting poll shows that some 30% of Palestinian Arabs would like to emigrate from their homes.
34% of Gazans, and 26% of West Bank Arabs would like to move away.
Of course, no Arab country wants them, and their leaders don't want them to leave.
So when the PLO says that "What is important is that individual refugees decide for themselves which option they prefer – a decision must not be imposed upon them," it really means that "you guys must continue to be used as pawns until we destroy Israel completely, just as we have used you for the past 61 years."
It's all in the interpretation.
