Tel Aviv Musuem to Host "Palestinian Return" Conference


Retired Colonel and former Member of Knesset Moshe Peled has called upon the Eretz Israel Museum not to host the Zochrot conference. In an interview with Arutz Sheva news, he stated, "the organization is anti-Israel and against Jewish repatriation in the Land of Israel." The conference is entitled "From Truth to Redress: Realizing the Return of Palestinian Refugees." It will take place at the museum in Tel Aviv from September 29th - September 30th. A statement from the main page of the organization's website states, "the Nakba was the destruction, expulsion, looting, massacres and incidents of rape of the Palestinian inhabitants of this country. It was keeping refugees out by force at the end of the war, in order to establish the Jewish state."
