Lieberman: Right of Return Makes Arab Plan Unacceptable
22 Apr 09 | Ha’aretz
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Wednesday his opposition to an Arab peace initiative stemmed from its demand for a “right of return” for Palestinian refugees to Israel proper.
“The clause on the right of return cannot be agreed to,” he declared at a cabinet meeting on the government’s diplomatic policy.
“This is a subject upon which there is wide agreement in the government and in the public as well.”
Lieberman’s criticism of various peace efforts has stoked consternation in Israel and abroad. >>>
