Filmaker: “For the Sake of Nakba: The Campaign for the Right of Return”

Every aspect of PA education,introduced in the UNRWA refugee camps and in the nascent Palestinian Authority in 1994,

addresses the right of every descendant of every Arab refugee from 1948 to realize their “right of return”, by all means, to Arab villages from 1948 that no longer exist

An interactive Palestinian internet site, helps every descendant of every refugee from 1948 to locate his “home” & see who lives there now.

A mantra heard from those who dismiss the significance of the “right of return” is that this is no more than a request for an “in principle” right of return and that vast majority would not opt to realize that right.


And what would happen if if 10% (400,000) choose to return to villages from 1948 that no longer exist, which have been replaced by Israeli citiies and collective farms ?

And what would happen if 1% (40,000) would opt to do so?

Would this not precipitate a bloodbath?

A second mantra, put forward by Salman Abu-Sitta,director of “al-Awda the Palestinian Right of Return Coalition”, and the head of the “Right of Return” center in London, is that much of the land where the “right of return” would be carried out is not even populated by Israelis. Abu Sitta’s “Right of Return” maps claim that settling descendants of Arab refugees in areas where Israelis do not reside would not pose a threat to Israel.

Abu Sitta’s vision is that woodlands of CANADA PARK, stretching along the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway, would be populated by descendants of Arab villages that used to be there..

Meanwhile, a study of Abu Sitta’s “right of return” center in London shows that this campaign inculcates descendants of Palestinian refugees from around the world to forcibly take back the lands of all Arab villages that Israel overran in the wake of the 1948 war. For a full description of the nature of “Right of Return” center in London, please see:

The population of Israel is in for a surprise, as are the local and international media.

Not one news outlet, in Israel or abroad, provides news coverage for the education inculcated by UNRWA and the Palestinian Authority to four million descendants of refugees from 1948 war who wallow in “temporary” UNRWA camps… to march on villages from 1948 that no longer exist.


  1. For the arabs to demand the return ,is a non-starter period. Israel should say to them NO,NO and NO. NO return, no land and no state. Enough of the BS from the losers of 5 genocidal wars against Jews. Let the filthy rich saudi arabs, that do nothing, relocate the arab vermin in their country where all the interloper arabs migrated from. A line must be drawn where nothing will be given to these racist, terrorist arabs.
