Tit for tat must be the game

Reader comment on item: Ending the Palestinian "Right of Return"

Submitted by NuritG (United States), Jan 18, 2012 at 00:49

The Right of Return to the Land of Israel was given to the Jews at the Conference of the Principal Allied Powers at San Remo in 1920; it was subsequently endorsed by unanimous resolutions of both Houses of the Congress of the United States; it was embodied in the Mandate for Palestine approved by the League of Nations in 1922; it was declared, in a formal statement of policy issued by the British Colonial Secretary in the same year, 'not to be susceptible of change.'

The " Right of Return" of the Arabs has one purpose only, which is to destroy Israel from within. In that case, let the Arab countries allow the "Right of Return" of 900,000 Jews and their descendants to all the Arab countries form which they were expelled. One issue must be borne in mind: While the Arabs claiming a Right of Return were not expelled from Israel, rather ran away upon their either fear of war of because they obeyed their other Arab leaders' adviceā€¦leave the country and in few weeks you shall return to a country that is all yours. On the other hand, Jews who were expelled from the Arab countries were forced to leave against their will! Tit for tat must be the game
