A suggestion from Senator Andreotti for Palestinian refugees

An overseas opportunity

«I wonder if it would not be possible to offer groups of dispersed Palestinians, shut up in the concentration camps, the chance of assisted emigration to Latin America, in particular to Brazil». Life senator Giulio Andreotti, guest at the celebration of the fortieth anniversary of the foundation of the Italo-Latin-American Institute on 11 December, along with the President of the Republic Giorgio Napolitano and the Foreign Minister Massimo D’Alema, made this surprise proposal during his brief speech of greeting. And he added: «We cannot delude ourselves that the problem of the Palestinians can be resolved only in the context of relations with Israel. The lack of a small glimmer of light will embitter evermore the crisis in the Middle East with human damages and danger for peace in the world».
