Extract from a JC news item, Sep 30th:
"21,300 people moved to Israel last year under the Law of Return, compared to around 17,900 the previous year. They came from places as far flung as Hong Kong, Honduras, Vietnam, Zimbabwe, Monaco, Suriname,China, Angola, the Philipines, Thailand, Japan, Malta, Congo, South Korea and Nicaragua ... including a "10% jump in immigration from North America".
Return? RETURN? All those individuals were actually returning to a country they used to live in? Well now, what a wonderful law that Law of Return must be. It must clearly mean that all those Palestinians who used to live there, and whose families had lived there for generations, are also entitled to return to this land they used to live in. What an honourable law - well done, Israel!
Or have I misunderstood something?
