Lieberman rejects right to return

Ultra right Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman rejected the possibility of Palestinian refugees from historic Palestine, land which Israel was built on, being able to return to their lands within the 1967 borders, a right that is upheld by United Nations Resolution 194. “We will not agree to the return of a single refugee to within the ‘67 borders,” Lieberman reportedly said. “There will never be another Prime Minister who makes propositions to Palestinians like Ehud Olmert did,” he added, referring to a 2008 peace proposal introduced by the former prime minister.
 
The right of return for Palestinian refugees is a central demand among Palestinians and their leadership. The demand also represents a powerful symbolic connection to their lands and homes they were displaced from, as many Palestinians still possess original keys to their homes that were consumed by the state of Israel 69 years ago.
