BEIRUT: Former Prime Minister Salim al-Hoss blasted Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas Sunday over his remarks on the Palestinians’ right of return, saying: “We wish he would remain silent, he who has nothing to do with restoring the dignity of Arabs.” “No one, whether Palestinian or Arab, has the right to abandon a single inch from the land of Palestine or a single right of its people’s rights,” the former prime minister said in a statement. Speaking during an interview with Israel’s Channel 2 television Friday, Abbas explained that he would not try to regain his childhood home in the northern town of Safad, today located inside Israel. “I want to see Safad,” he said in English. “It’s my right to see it but not to live there.” Hoss said that in the forefront of Palestinians’ rights was the right of return for around 6 million Palestinian refugees. “Palestine is all Palestine, from the [Mediterranean] sea to the [Jordan] River, with Jerusalem as a capital,” Hoss added. “Enough with free concessions ... enough with relinquishing the rights of Palestinians and Arabs, let him remain silent.”
