Netherlands to deport Palestinians?

No, of course not. Only Muslim countries can deport Palestinians when told they will have to give them citizenship. Should a European country announce that they're deporting refugees because they don't think refugees should be settled far away from their homeland, they will be denounced as racist and inhumane.

Libya threatens to deport Palestinian refugees to Gaza

Country may deport thousands of Palestinian refugees in protest of what Libyans believe is an Arab plan to concede Palestinians' right of return in framework of Saudi peace plan

Libya's leader Muammar Gaddafi has decided to boycott the Arab League's summit, set to be held in Riyadh at the end of March, in response to what he considers as the Arab leaders' plan to "sacrifice" the refugee issue in order to please Israel.

Gaddafi is worried that in the framework of the Saudi peace initiative, Arab leaders would concede the refugees' right of return, and agree to have them naturalized in their countries of residence, in a bid to encourage Israel's cooperation with the peace plan.

Libyan newspaper al-Jamahiriya reported this week that Libya may begin deporting Palestinian refugees soon, in protest of the Arab plan.

"Libya will never cooperate with a concession of the refugees' right of return, and will not allow for the settling of refugees far away from their homeland," the paper stated.
