Palestine: President Abbas Abandons Palestinian Right of Return

  2 November 2012

During an interview given to the Israeli Channel 2 News, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said that he does not have the right to live in Safed, his birth town, now part of Israel. The declaration was considered by proponents of the "right of return" as an abandonment of Palestinian refugees' right to return to the villages and the homes they were forcibly displaced from during the 1948 occupation of Palestine and the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.
