CPRR Press Release:
ISRAELI DEPUTY DEFENSE MINISTER INADVERTENTLY ACKNOWLEDGES PALESTINIAN REFUGEES'
RIGHT OF RETURN
In a comment to the Associated Press on May 22, 2000, Israeli Deputy Defense
Minister Ephraim Sneh inadvertently acknowledged the inviolable right of Palestinian
refugees to return to their homes. Referring to the situation of members of
Israel's proxy militia, the South Lebanese Army, who are not technically refugees,
but rather fugitives from justice, Sneh declared that Israel is prepared to
offer political asylum to militiamen and their families "because it's
very cruel to turn someone into a refugee."
