MK Wilf Blasts UNRWA Over Refugee Issue

Member of Knesset Einat Wilf of the newly formed Independence Party says that she is skeptical about negotiations with the Palestinian Authority. In an interview with Israel National Radio's Josh Hasten, she stated that instead of facilitating former Arab residents of Israel into permanent housing, they insist on a “right of return” into pre-1967 Israeli borders. 

MK Wilf also took issue with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine (UNRWA). She stated they perpetrate the conflict by not settling Arab refugees and their descendants in their current locations.
