The so-called “right of return” for Palestinian Arab refugees and their descendents is not a new idea.

Yet this claim — that the refugees have the right to return to villages they left in 1948 — is now being
promoted with a new vigor. Proponents of this position include the Palestinian Authority and a
seemingly unlikely international advocate. That partner is UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and
Work Agency for Palestinian Refugees. UNRWA was established as a temporary agency 60 years ago
in the wake of the 1948 war to aid the refugees in their plight, which they call the Nakba or catastrophe.
