Report: Kerry proposes return of Palestinian refugees to Israel

(JNS.org) U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has proposed to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas the return of 80,000 Palestinian refugees to Israel as part of a comprehensive peace deal, a Palestinian official told China’s Xinhua News Agency. “Kerry’s proposal on the return of refugees is the same proposal offered by former U.S. President Bill Clinton during Camp David peace talks held in the United States in 2000,” the official said. The official added, however, that Abbas wants to increase the number to 200,000 Palestinians returning to Israel. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has flatly rejected Kerry’s proposal.
