PA slams Israel's decision to bring Jews from India

June 27, 2011 8:41 P.M. (Updated: June 28, 2011 5:02 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – The Palestinian Authority on Monday slammed Israel's decision to bring Jews from northeast India to Israel.

According to Monday’s issue of Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, the ministerial committee convened under Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and decided to bring 7,300 Jews from India to Israel.

The report highlighted that up until 2007, 1,700 Indian Jews were brought to Israel, and immigration stopped since then.

PA spokesman Ghassan Khatib said the decision came in line with Israel’s policy to bring non-Israeli Jews to Israel at the expense of the Palestinian people.

Meanwhile, he added, Israel prevents the Palestinians from returning to their homeland to live there.

"This is something we condemn, and since we don't have enough information, we need to contact the Indian government for an explanation," he told Ma’an.
