CJPME: Do you respect, protect and promote the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN resolution 194?

JS: We fully support UN resolutions with respect to Israel and Palestine, including UN General Assembly resolution 194.

CJPME: Do you support ending Israeli occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantling the Wall?
