Hello Saleh Yousef,
Thank you for your interesting and reasonable question.
There are current difficulties with a return to Israel of those who claim to be Palestinian refugees:
1) The validity of Palestinian "refugee" status is debatable, and cannot be accepted in the same manner as for other refugees. This is because the Arab-dominated United Nations awarded a unique refugee status to the Palestinians not permitted in any other refugee situation. One characteristic of it is that Palestinians are allowed to inherit their status, which as the reader will appreciate, consequentially and dishonestly inflates the apparent number of "refugees". Such a distortion of refugee status for political bias, cannot simply be imposed on Israel by the Arab-dominated U.N.
The Palestinians obtained an illogical, unique, and false refugee status at the U.N., due to the 21 Arab countries block-vote, plus the votes of additional Islamic countries, plus the influence of Arab oil money:
2) Jews as well as Arabs were displaced during the 1948 war which was started by the Arabs with the sole purpose of ethnically-cleansing (or murdering) the Jews from the Jewish People's ancestral homeland of Israel.
Whereas there was a direct policy to expel all Jews by the Arabs, there was no such general policy against Arabs by the Jews.
Constant attempts by the Palestinian Arabs to ethnically-cleanse the Jewish People from the Jewish People's ancestral homeland of Israel:
In 1947 to 1948 the Palestinian Arabs started a campaign of civil war and terror to ethnically-cleanse the Jewish Community:
Examples of the expulsion of Jews during the years leading up to and including the re-establishment of Israel:
Jews expelled from Old City of Jerusalem 1948:
Jews expelled within Mandate Palestine up to War of Independence:
The Arabs continue to seek the expulsion of the Jewish population and indeed have expelled any Jews from the areas the Palestinians control, and then falsely claimed "Apartheid" against Israel.
The “Palestinian National Charter” seeks to expel the Jewish People from the Jewish People’s ancestral homeland of Israel:
3) The Palestinians consider themselves at war with Israel, and target Israeli Jewish civilians as policy; not a good background for simply making demands that those who claim to be refugees should be allowed a purported return.
4) Any claims of a return of refugees would have to form part of sincere negotiations for a peace treaty, but unfortunately the Palestinians claim ALL the land:
The Palestinian education system in the Palestinian Territories practices:
Mind-abuse, victim-mentality, hatred of Jewish People, AND that Israel does not exist:
I hope the following additional information will assist the reader:
The Jewish People have unbroken presence in the land of Israel since Biblical times and previous sovereign states there, for example the Jewish Hasmonean Kingdom of Judea with its capital of Jerusalem, and independent as at 110 BCE / 753 BH–752 BH:
Many people are unaware that there have been at least two major occasions when "land for peace" was attempted, in other words a two-state solution, but rejected by the Palestinians. The Palestinians have consistently rejected any such solution, because they claim ALL the land and wish to expel the Jewish People.
The first attempt at a two state solution, was the United Nations Partition Plan.
The second attempt at a two state solution was the Oslo Accords.
The Jewish state was Re-established in 1948 following a United Nations Partition Plan which had sought to set up two states, one Jewish and one Arab:
The then Palestinian Jewish Community accepted the U.N. Plan, while the Palestinian-Arab response was to violently reject it and seek to ethnically-cleanse the Jewish population, but lost the war. Jordan then occupied the West Bank and Egypt occupied the Gaza strip; neither offered these areas to the Palestinians:
(Please see the sources which I have put into the “Sources” area of this answer.)
Palestinian propaganda falsely alleges the re-establishment of Israel caused: a “great injustice” / “nakba” (“disaster") to the Palestinians.
> The Palestinians violently rejected the Arab state of the United Nations Partition Plan;
> Jordan and Egypt occupied the land proposed for an Arab state under the U.N. Partition Plan (approximating to the West Bank and Gaza);
> BOTH Palestinian Arabs and Jews from Arab countries, became war-refugees;
> The Palestinians claim falsely with no evidence of any such policy that they were expelled from the land; Jews were indeed expelled by the Arabs as policy. Palestinians live and work in Israel.
Therefore the reader is entitled to be sceptical about Palestinian propaganda falsely alleging a fantasy-injustice.
Some Palestinians have Israeli citizenship, while most refuse it because they refuse the right of the Jewish People to re-establish the Jewish state in the Jewish People's ancestral homeland of Israel.
Some Arab refugees had owned land / homes there, but land / home ownership does not of itself amount to proof of entitlement to the sovereignty of the country in which a community lives.
The Palestinians have two territories (part of the West Bank and the whole of Gaza) (or Palestinian colonies on soil of the former Jewish kingdoms of Judea / Israel) which the Palestinians run themselves with their own army and police.
The following is how the Palestinians obtained these territories:
In 1967 Israel gained control of these areas and as an attempt by Israel at “land for peace” under the Oslo Accords, the Palestinians were later given autonomy for part of the West Bank (40%) and the whole of the Gaza Strip by Israel as part of a peace process which anticipated further negotiations for a peace treaty.
Therefore until any peace treaty that may say otherwise, the land remains Israel's.
Once the Palestinians had been granted autonomy of part of the West Bank and the whole of Gaza, they since:
> Refuse to negotiate any peace treaty.
> Claim the whole of Israel.
> Consider themselves at war with Israel.
> Attack Israeli Jewish civilians as policy.
Palestinians get paid a "pension" to murder Jewish Israelis including children, yet while the Palestinian President condemns the ISIS murder of children in Manchester, England. See the (best) answer at:
I hope this helps.

I like The Solutions of Colonel Gaddafi ( RIP) regarding the matter :
1- Bring back all Jews and All Palestinians
2- Unify Israel with Palestine , Create just one State for all of them
3- Call it Isratine
4- Let them all govern themselves , make a secular constitution to preserve the values of the new born state , define the borders and reform the laws to serve all of them and make them all fully equals .
5- Remove The Islamofacists and Judeofacists in the desert , let them live together alone isolated from the entire population , they can either learn to live together in peace and make the desert fruitful or kill each others , it's a win win situation anyway .

No, that would be impossible now. Their ancestors chose to leave and the Arab world must accept this fact.
They should now be assimilated into the Arab countries where they were born, and not kept in refugee status for generation after generation. This is a massive human rights violation, and as usual the world stays silent and the Muslims say nothing.

It would be a very bad signal for the respect of international legislation if an offender can keep the benefits of his violation thanks to a fait accompli, simply by clinging to his conquest for a sufficiently long time.
Moreover, most of the Palestinians who suffered from the Nakba (or the deportations of the Six-Day war) have still not been able to settle in another place : either they are in a country in which they don't have the citizenship and they still live in camps, or they live packed in the tiny Gaza strip. They *need* a place to live decently. This problem has not disappeared with time.

Nope. They left of their own free will believing Allah's holy warrior will defeat the little Jews. Little did they know the little Jews bounced Allah's holy warriors asses all over the Middle East lol. You can't come back with your tail between your legs because the war didn't go your way.
Do the 900,000 or so Jews that were forced from Islamic countries deserve to go back to those countries? Nope. You got the boot. It's done with, it's over. Let's all move on.
69 years on. It's been left a little late to be saying the Arabs that left hoping and praying all the Jews would be killed should be allowed to return. It's also too late to be asking whether the 900,000 Jews should be allowed to return to the Islamic countries. Time only moves in one direction, you've got to move with it.
The real shame is how Israel took the 900,000 Jews forced from various Islamic countries and integrated them into the state. And how the Arabs took the Pallies and shoved them in refugee camps.. and to this very day treat them like dirt, refuse to grant them basic rights, and use them as pawns in a game. That's the real tragedy.
