Quelli che saranno girati al Rwanda perché accetti i rifugiati presenti oggi in territorio israeliano e minacciati di deportazione.

Eshkol expressed the hope that, “precisely because of the suffocation and imprisonment there, maybe the Arabs will move from the Gaza Strip,” adding there were ways to remove those who remained. “Perhaps if we don’t give them enough water they won’t have a choice, because the orchards will yellow and wither,” he said in this context.
