ABSTRACT
The US is currently following a blueprint of a strategy in which it advances Israel's "victory", while imposing conditions of surrender on defeated Palestinians. (Pipes, 2016) One of the main targets of this new policy is Palestinian refugees, scattered in their millions across Palestine and the Middle East. But the 'Nakba', starting 70 years ago - and all of its dire consequences, since then - is a concept that is so deeply entrenched in the hearts and minds of most Palestinians to this day. Thus, the refugees and their insistence on their Right of Return are the main, if not the only, obstacles before the US-Israeli plot.
