The Halachick status of Transfer


Rabbi Jonathan Blass

21 Iyyar 5763
I have seen several teshuvot written on the question of whether land can be exchanged for peace. I would like to know what Jewish law has to say on the matter of transferring the Arabs out of Israel?
This is a question of defense and security relating to that part of the Arab population that has declared war on the State of Israel by fomenting or supporting terror. Like other tactical suggestions, the question is whether it is feasible given the internal divisions in Israel and whether its benefits justify its costs- the risk of harming people who have not supported terror and the sanctions that would likely be imposed by the nations of the world.
