ABSTRACT
The article discusses the origin of the Palestinian claim of "a right of return," which drives the migration of about 5 million Palestinians living outside Israel to areas within Israel. It notes that this is unacceptable to Israel, as it would be liquidated as a majority Jewish state. The United Nations' assistance to survivors of Palestinian refugees in 1948 reportedly cover both Arab and Jewish former residents of Israel, who should be permitted to return at the earliest practicable date.
