The Jewish Press: How did you learn to speak fluent Arabic and what sparked your interest in Arabic culture?
The notion of a right of return is bizarre, because people who came to Israel from all over the Middle East prior to the 1948 war and lived there even for less than a year demand the right of return. These people were foreign workers in Palestine before 1948 for a year, maybe half a year. Many of them still carry names like “El Iraqi” (“from Iraq”) or El Masri (“from Egypt”) or “El Hourani” (“from the Houran, Syria”), which testify that they are originally not from Palestine. So I do back their right of return – to the original places they came from: Iraq, Egypt, and Syria. But they don’t want to return to those places. They would rather live in Israel – a democratic state that honors human rights and political freedoms.
