A Real Right of Return Petition for the Palestinian Refugees sign now

Affirmation of the Right of Return of the Palestinian
Arab People to their
Homeland

We the Palestinian, Arab, and International
signatories to this Declaration,

Cognizant of the facts that AS A RESULT OF THE ZIONIST
OCCUPATION,

Our people have been expelled from their homes in 531
towns and villages in
Palestine in 1948 by Zionist military forces, and
their lands, comprising
92\% of "Israel", have been confiscated,

Our people have endured 51 years of foreign
occupation, exile, ravages of
war, oppression, denial of national identity and
racism and have been the
victim of the largest ethnic cleansing operation,
unprecedented in modern
history designed to replace them with Jewish
immigrants from all over the
world,

Two thirds of our people, over five million refugees
and uprooted, represent
the largest and oldest group of refugees in the world,

In spite of overwhelming international consensus
supported by hundreds of UN
resolutions, our people are still unable to fulfill
their natural right to
return home,

Therefore we affirm the following,

The right of the Palestinian refugees and the uprooted
to return to their
homes is a fundamental right under the Universal
Declaration of Human
Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and
Political Rights, the
International Convention on the Elimination of All
Forms of Racial
Discrimination, the European, the American and the
African Conventions on
Human Rights,

The right of the Palestinian refugees and the uprooted
to return to their
homes is an inalienable right and has been affirmed by
the UN resolution No
194 over 110 times since 1948,

The Right of Return is derived first and foremost from
THE HISTORICAL ARAB
RIGHT TO THE LAND OF PALESTINE, then from the sanctity
of private ownership
which cannot be extinguished by new sovereignty or
occupation and does not
have a statute of limitation;

The Right of Return is essentially a collective
national as well as an
individual right which cannot be delegated,
diminished, reduced or forfeited
by any representation on behalf of the Palestinians in
any agreement or
treaty.

Accordingly, we hereby declare that,

We absolutely do not accept or recognize any outcome
of negotiations which
may lead to an agreement that forfeits any part of the
right of
return of the refugees and the uprooted to their
homes from where they were
expelled in 1948, or their due compensation, and we do
not accept
compensation as a substitute for return,

We demand due reparations for the psychological
suffering, the material
losses and damages and War Crimes which the refugees
endured for 51 years in
accordance with international law and legal
precedents,

As we sign here, members of the Palestinian people
from all walks of life,
including the refugees in the Palestinian territory
occupied in 1967 where
29\% live, and the rest scattered in the rest of the
world, in addition to
the hundreds of thousands of Palestinians evictees who
are residing
currently within the so-called Green Line as the
Zionists refuse to allow
them back to their villages occupied in 1948,

Appeal to fair-minded people, human rights advocates,
the international
community, the United Nations, and the world
governments, particularly those
who were involved in the Palestinian tragedy, to
recognize and support by
all available means the right of the Palestinians to
return home.

Finally we emphasize that there is no real peace
without the LIBERATION OF
OCCUPIED LAND AND THE RETURN THEREBY OF THE
PALESTINIAN PEOPLE TO THEIR
HOMELAND, and that restitution and the settlement of
refugees outside
Palestine, are unacceptable alternatives to Palestine.
