A Weapon to Destroy Israel: Arab States' Struggle Against Solving the Palestinian Refugee Problem


Alek D. Epstein


Open University of Israel


Jerusalem Summit Papers, 2004

Abstract:     
The Palestinian representatives' claims that the failure of the "peace process" as a whole was largely caused by the failure to achieve agreement on the issue of Palestinian refugees warrants an in-depth study of this highly complex issue. Until the Palestinians and Arab countries show minimal willingness to acknowledge vital needs of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state, the Palestinian refugee problem can hardly expect to be solved even in part. Most Palestinian Arabs who left their homes and fled the country in 1947-1949 died without seeing the "light at the end of the tunnel", and the problem that already suffered from excessive politicization has now turned into a straightforward political farce.
