The Refugee Poll

JewishPress Logo

We were as surprised as everyone else by the poll by a Palestinian pollster that barely 10% of
Palestinians who had at some point lived within the “green line” – or had parents who did – had any desire to return. But as welcome as that news is we urge caution ahead as to how to treat the news.

For one thing, there may now be a tendency to suggest that agreeing to a so-called “right of
return” should not be a point of great contention with the Palestinian Arabs because there would be little practical consequence. To the contrary. Agreeing to a “right of return” would open the floodgates.

And on a different level, it is critical to make the point that the poll is irrelevant. What
constitutes the land of Israel is not a function of what Palestinian Arabs may or may not want.
Israel is what it is.
