Where will the Palestinians go?

There's no way all the Palestinians can move to Israel....will they be satisfied moving to the PA?
Jordan's King Abdullah II vowed Tuesday to oppose settling more Palestinian refugees in his country amid Arab fears that Israel's withdrawal from the Gaza Strip may not extend to the West Bank.

Abdullah is concerned that if Israel fails to leave the West Bank, which Palestinians want as part of a future state, Jordan may be pressed to settle tens of thousands of Palestinian refugees living in camps scattered across the region, including Syria and Lebanon.

"I know and do appreciate the fears of some of you that plans may exist to redraw the map of the region and to settle some historic issues at the expense of Jordan," Abdullah told an impromptu meeting with members of parliament, Cabinet and former prime ministers before he left for Russia.

"We are talking about the issue of resettlement and an alternative (Jordanian) homeland," he said.
Palestinian refugees and their descendents have been living in Lebanan and Jordon for over 50 years. Isn't time they were resettled?
