PALESTINIAN REFUGEES: The Right of Return
Edited by Naseer Aruri
With renewed conflict in the Middle East, the prospect of a peaceful
resolution looks ever more unlikely. The Palestinian right of return to
their homes has been upheld in international law and United Nations'
resolutions for fifty years. Equally the right of return has been denied by
Israel, deferred to a "final status" issue in the Oslo Accords, and is being
denied by the U.S-proposed peace settlement. It is on this right of return that
the Palestinians are united. And it is this issue which is so frequently
ignored by the international media.
With major contributions from a range of international authors, including
Edward W. Said, Noam Chomsky and Nur Masalha, this volume examines the
Palestinians¹ right of return. Chapters cover the historical roots of the
Palestinian refugee question; the rights of the refugees under international
law; the special case of Lebanon; Israeli perceptions of the refugee
question; the practical feasibility of the return (Return Plan); the role of
the United States and the European Community and the Refugee Question; the
value of the refugee property; the principles of compensation; and a program
for an Independent Rights Campaign.
