Lapid says Abbas speech a ‘crude lie’

Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid calls Abbas’ speech to the Security Council a “crude lie” and criticizes the UN’s policy of granting the descendants of Palestinian refugees refugee status.

“Abu Mazen’s remarks at the UN on the the issue of refugees are a crude lie,” tweets Lapid, using Abbas’ nickname. “The world can’t allow the Palestinians to be the only nation in the world in which refugee status is inherited.”

“There aren’t millions of Palestinian refugees. There never were. Israel will never agree to the right of return,” he adds.
