My 10-10-10 letter to al Jazeera regarding "Israel approves loyalty oath "

Palestinian Refugees denied return 1948

RE: Israel approves loyalty oath, Cabinet adopts bill that requires non-Jewish immigrants to swear loyalty to the "Jewish, democratic state".

Dear Editor,

" "The new citizenship law will make it impossible for Palestinian refugees and their descendants to return to their homeland," Marwan Bishara, Al Jazeera's senior political analyst, said. "

From what I can see the new law does not "make it impossible for Palestinian refugees and their descendants to return to their homeland". The law applies to new immigrants- refugees returning are indigenous, not new immigrants... and you should take care not to endorse the mistaken idea that returning refugees can or should be forced to take this oath.

Sincerly,
Anne Selden Annab
