In his address, Netanyahu reiterated his readiness to meet Arab leaders and urged Palestinians to resume peace talks. But on the thorny issue of Palestinian refugees, Netanyahu repeated long-standing Israeli policy by saying they could not return to areas in Israel from which they were forced to flee during the 1948 war that led to Israel's creation.
Netanyahu's speech was not well-received by Palestinians. "Oh, it doesn't matter that there are two million Palestinians living in cardboard and tin-can shacks in refugee camps virtually off of garbage," many of whom had fine homes and farms and lands in Palestine. It doesn't matter, obviously, or to the United States. It doesn't matter that two million poor Palestinians are kicked out of their own homes and their own country and have nothing and nowhere to go and nowhere to live and nothing to eat, as long as the [Israelis] get what they want!.
To most of the World and the Palestinians it looks like Israel is the real criminal and the robber, because the Jews have stolen a whole country and thrown out two million of its owners.The United States and Britain helped the Jews steal a whole country and thousands of Palestinian homes and made millions of Palestinian people homeless and hungry, but of course the [Israelis] couldn't be criminals! They're not criminals.--That's legitimate for whole countries to do things like that. It's perfectly all right for whole countries to carry on wars and murder millions of people, that's all right.
