Abstract

This study demonstrates that the Palestinian people have a legitimate right to their land and nation, based upon international agreements and commitments, United Nations resolutions, and the principles of international law. It attributes the exacerbation of the refugee issue to Israel’s practice of power politics, including expulsion and defiance of international legitimacy.
