The Ownership of the U.S. Embassy Site in Jerusalem: Special Report
Number of Pages:
Co-published with the American Committee on Jerusalem; Jerusalem edition published by the Institute of Jerusalem Studies.
This monograph conclusively proves that the plot of land leased by Israel to the United States in 1989 as the future site of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem is confiscated Palestinian refugee property. The research for this study is based on archival material in Washington (State Department), New York (United Nations Conciliation Commission for Palestine), London (Public Records Office), and Jerusalem (the Israeli Land Registry and Municipality), as well as an extensive documentation obtained from the heirs of the original owners, many of whom are now U.S. citizens.
