Supreme Court's Landmark Decision

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

Submitted by P. Schwartz (United States), Feb 8, 2012 at 00:11

I was pleasantly surprised to read that the Supreme Court ruled that the family reunification program instituted by the misbegotten Oslo Accords did not grant either citizenship or residency rights to the Palestinians who applied, usually via marriage to an Israeli Arab. Knowing the leftist inclination of the Supreme Court, this is truly a landmark ruling.

But it was disappointing to read that in a poll by the Mina Zemach Institute, 83% of Israelis disagreed with the decision.

However, the law is the law.
