Andrew Yang Backtracks On Whether Palestinian Refugees Should Have Right To Return To Israel


Entrepreneur and Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang backtracked on Monday after telling The New York Times in a survey last week that Palestinian refugees and their descendants should have the right to return to Israel.

In response the question “Should all Palestinian refugees and their descendants have the right to return to Israel?,” Yang simply answered “Yes.”

On Twitter, Eric Weinstein, a managing director at Thiel Capital, tweeted the question with a screenshot of Yang’s answer and added, “You need to say more Andrew.”

Yang replied, “Thanks Eric. It was answered by a staffer who I think misunderstood the question. I believe that Palestinians should have a say in their future but I do not believe that all refugees and descendants have the right to return to Israel. Appreciate your calling it out.”

Additionally, in the survey on Israel issues, Yang pledged to keep the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, where it was relocated from tel Aviv in May 2018.




  1. Someone should teach him history. When the UN split Israel in half the Arabs rejected the split and they told the Arabs living in the Israeli side to leave for a short time until they destroyed the Jews then they can come back. Till 1967 the Arabs controlled the old city and the whole west bank. Than again they decided it’s time to destroy the Jews. Bechasdei Hashem both time their plan failed. So those Arabs who stayed are citizens those who ran away should stay away we don’t need these murderers amongst us. Also since it was a defensive war what ever we captured is ours as the Lubavitcher Rebbe a”h always reiterated over and over it’s our land Arabs have no right to it and we shouldn’t even talk to them
