This book is mainly based on two lectures delivered by Dr. Mohsen Saleh, as an introduction to the Palestinian refugee issue. It offers a clear definition of the land and people of Palestine, and refutes the Jews’ alleged historical claims to Palestine. It discusses the emergence of Zionism, the role of Britain in consolidating the Zionist project, partition of Palestine, the emergence of the Palestinian National Movement, and Palestine’s war of 1948. It responds to the allegation that the Palestinians left their homeland willingly.
This book defines the Palestinian refugee and explains his/her legal rights, and displays the most important resolutions that were issued in support of Palestinian refugees, which far exceed the number of resolutions issued for any other refugee issue in other parts of the world. It also discusses the peace process and the issue of refugees, and provides the readers with a comprehensive statistical review of the Palestinian Refugees.
