Former Member of Knesset Einat Wilf discusses her book War of Return, arguing that the conflict will never end until the world recognizes that Palestinian refugees, as they are usually defined, do not have the right to return to their pre-1948 homes. Sparks fly.

I have just listened to teh podcast containing the discussion of Dr Wilf’s new.
I was simply astounded by (i) the hostile tone of the discussion; and (ii) the disinformation of your discussants on population transfers in the Balkans.
This may be compared with the quite different tone of the earleir discussion on TLV1 on professor A Dubnov’s work on Partition.
I wonder if you and I listened to the same discussion…. “hostile tone of the discussion”…..what are you talking about?. As for disinformation…..that’s according to you.
I just listened to the interview with Einat…..she is just brilliant and so convincing. I for one totally accept ther arguments
