EU Ambassador Suggests Payment For Palestinians To Renounce ‘Right Of Return’


european-unionThe European Union’s Ambassador to Israel, Lars Faaborg-Andersen, said that the EU would consider providing financial compensation for Palestinian refugees if they renounce their claim of “right of return” to Israel proper as part of a permanent peace agreement with the Jewish state.

“We would also be, of course, very ready to assist in the implementation of any final peace agreement, be it with compensation of refugees, be it on the security front,” Faaborg-Andersen said at a conference on EU-Israel relations in Jerusalem, the Times of Israel reported.

At the conference, Faaborg-Andersen also reiterated the EU’s promise to offer Israel and a future Palestinian state a “Special Privileged Partnership” if a peace deal is signed. The partnership, which was unanimously endorsed by the EU’s foreign ministers in December 2013, provides an enhancement of political, economic, and security cooperation with the EU.

  1. The problem with this idea is that it would still leave hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refugees and their descendants as stateless people, with no hope of ever becoming citizens of any state.

    Were this combined with immigration visas to countries in Europe or North America it might work.

  2. If they have no AUTHENTIC claim for the right of return
    in the first place – why should they be paid for giving up – what isnt their due in the first place

  3. Wandering for 40 years in the Desert is the true right to return to Israel. If the palestinians actually had a god, they might have already been part of the future. They are not part of any conditional hope for any community in the western growing world today.

    What does the palestinian do when the hearse drives by? He checks his own teeth.

    Never Again.

  4. These interlopers are carpet baggers, squatters, vagabonds or children of such, and have no right as “palestinians”to anything. As you all know, there is no such person as a Palestinian.
