From Time magazine: no fact checkers

"The Palestinians ("them") hate the settlements as a reminder of occupation, proof that if and when any agreement with Israel is forged, they will never get back the land they call theirs. The settlements have joined other intractable issues — like the desire of Palestinian refugees to return to villages their families left 60 years ago — that have stymied every effort to find peace in the Middle East for a generation." Oh, no. Their families did not "leave" their homes 60 years ago. Even Israeli sources don't make those allegations anymore.
