PLO official sounds alarm over Likud deportation proposal

Jan. 2, 2013 4:50 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 3, 2013 6:10 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) -- Senior PLO official Ahmed Qurei said on Wednesday that officials in Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu's party demonstrated the extremism and dangerousness of the government's position.

On Tuesday, Likud officials called for the annexation of the West Bank and deportation of Palestinians at a conference organized by pro-settler activists Women in Green.

Likud's Moshe Feiglin proposed that Israel should pay $500,000 to each Palestinian who leaves Palestine voluntarily.

Qurei said the calls "reflect the point of view of extreme hostility, which does not want peace and ends the possibility for a peaceful solution."

Such proposals from the heart of the ruling Israeli party are dangerous and will thwart any two-state solution, he said.

Netanyahu's coalition of his Likud party and Avigdor Lieberman's further right-wing Yisrael Beitenu are slated to win new Israeli elections on Jan. 22.

Officially, Likud accepts the two-state solution, but the coalition is being challenged at the polls by a party that outflanks it to the right, Naftali Bennett's Bayit Yehudi, which includes annexation of the West Bank in its official platform.
