Resolution 194 - The Right to Return

After 6-800.000 Palestinians were expelled from their Land by Israel in 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted resolution 194 granting the Palestinians the Right to Return to their Land. This Right is still Refused by Israel, though it had to recognize the Resolution formally when it was admitted as a Member State to the UN in 1948. Section 11 of the Resolution states: Resolves that the refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbours should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property which, under principles of international law or in equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible.
