"tell me what the official response said"(Ron) "On March 28, 2002, then Foreign Minister Shimon Peres said: "Israel views positively every initiative aimed at arriving at peace and normalization. In this respect, the Saudi step is an important one, but it is liable to founder if terrorism is not stopped. We cannot, of course, ignore the problematic aspects which arose at the Beirut Summit and the harsh and rejectionist (sic) language used by some of the speakers. It is also clear that the details of every peace plan must be discussed directly between Israel and the Palestinians, and to make this possible, the Palestinian Authority must put an end to terror, the horrifying expression of which we witnessed just last night in Netanya"(Shimon Peres) "Is the Israeli denied "right of return" more important to you?"(Ron) You bet the Arab insistence on the possible right of return of millions of hostile Palestinian Arabs, into Israel proper, is important to me because that's a formula for Israel's destruction. And it was one of the demands made in your 2002 Arab peace initiative. That's one of the reasons Israel could not accept the proposal outright.
