The Guardian's. resident Zionist leftist, Jonathan Freedland, is to chair a discussion for Refugee Week hosted by The International Rescue Committee (UK). Jonathan Freedland has described the ethnic cleansing of Palestine as "a bad thing to achieve a good thing". The good thing being the apartheid state of Israel. So at least he considers ethnic cleansing to be a bad thing but he is opposed to the Palestinians' right to return to Palestine but in favour of his "right" to "return" there even though he doesn't come from there. Hardly an appropriate choice for someone chairing discussions on the plight of refugees.
