Palestinians call for right of return at UNHRC
By TOVAH LAZAROFF – JPOST
The PLO called for the right of return for Palestinian refugees to Israel during a debate on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva on Monday.
Israel must “recognize the right of return of refugees to their homeland, without selectivity or conditionality, including to the cities they were ejected from,” Imad Zuhairi, the PLO’s deputy charge d’affairs of its UN Observer Mission in Geneva, told the UNHRC.
This would be funny, if it weren’t so damnably tragic. Nothing has changed in 65 years.
I am not going to get into the question of who is right or wrong on this issue. Should Israel let them back or not?
The only thing that matters is that Israel will NOT let them back since they would flood Israel demographically and turn the Jewish state into an Islamic Republic.
So whether Israel is right or wrong is immaterial. It ain’t gonna happen.
I am not going to waste too much time thinking about. It is like arguing whether Hercules or Thor is more powerful.
Such discussions are best left relegated to comic books.
Since the Arab world refuses to assimilate the Palestinians – they want the problem to fester – I think paying the Palestinians in Judea and Samaria to leave for South America is a solution.
