Ma'an reports:
Organizations supporting Palestinian refugees in Lebanon are calling on the Arab League to include refugee rights in the agenda of Thursday's Arab League summit.

The petition to Secretary-General of the Arab League Nabil al-Arabi and other heads of state warns "the area will not have peace and quiet unless the Palestinian refugees’ right of return is implemented."

It is signed by 111 non governmental organizations supporting Palestinians in Lebanon.

"This issue threatens seven million Palestinian refugees and their right to go back to their homes from which they were uprooted forcefully in 1948," says a copy of the communique seen by Ma'an.

"It also has risks for Arab countries hosting Palestinian refugee populations due to immigration and residency issues," it continues.

The communication stresses that no Arab or Palestinian negotiator has the right to negotiate away refugees’ right of return.
These NGOs, many of which are probably no more than a post office box but some of whom probably include organizations like Norwegian People's Aid and Badil, are telling the world that there will be no peace without "return". They know that "return" means no more Israel, so they are really saying there will be no peace as long as Israel continues to exist.

To underscore the point that these NGOs are more interested in destroying Israel than in helping Palestinian Arabs, they explicitly say that they are against naturalization of Palestinian Arabs in their host countries. Anyone who cares about Palestinian Arabs would hold the opposite position and would do everything they could to ensure that Palestinians who desire to become citizens have that right. Their refusal to do so reveals their ugly goal.

Beyond that, they say that even if the issue is solved in peace negotiations between Israel and her Arab neighbors, they will never accept anything less than the total destruction of Israel.

So as J-Street issues speech after speech in Washington today about how much they want peace, perhaps they should tackle the issue of how peace is possible with people who say as explicitly as they can that there will never be peace while a Jewish state exists in the Middle East.

UPDATE: Commenter L. King adds:

Every often I like to see how a story would be reported if it spun like the media spins stories on Israel:

LEBANESE NGOS VOTE TO EXPEL PALESTINIAN REFUGEES

Proving that Lebanon is a racist apartheid state, representatives of over 100 NGO groups agreed that Palestinians were unfit to live anywhere in their country. Taking issue with the possibility of even residency in Lebanon, let alone immigration, spokemen noted that ethnic Palestinians posed "risks for Arab countries" and should they remain no peace would be possible.

The only possibility for hope would be if the model of a democratic and free Israel were followed, noting that Israel was a pluralistic society that had integrated a diverse population, including Jews and Arabs.

"No Palestinian or Arab has the right to negotiate" indicating the rigidly enforced group think of the Ummah, where individual rights and freedoms are regularly curtailed.
