Jewish refugees to be compensated in future peace deals

The Knesset plenum passed a bill which is aimed at securing compensation for the Jewish refugees from the Arab states and Iran as part of peace negotiations in the Middle East. According to the bill, a Jewish refugee is an Israeli citizen who left one of the Arab states or Iran following religious persecution.

 

The bill stipulates that the government will include the compensation issue in all future peace negotiations. (Amnon Meranda)
