Palestinians must relinquish “right of return”

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Sunday that the Palestinian refusal to recognize the Jewish people’s right to a homeland is the root of the ongoing conflict. For a final status accord, the Palestinians must relinquish the so-called right of return and all other claims on Israel. He spoke at the weekly cabinet meeting the day after the Palestinian Authority called the Balfour Declaration “a crime against humanity” and demanded an apology from Britain. (In a letter written 96 years ago, British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour called for the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.)
Netanyahu repeated once again: “We will never allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon.”
