ABSTRACT
This article examines the policies of Israel's government on the Arab refugees following its victory in the 1967 Six Day War. Almost overnight Israel became the principal refugee host country, with approximately half the total number of registered refugees under its control. This is an ironic turn in the history of the problem, since Israel had always insisted that the refugees be resettled beyond its frontiers in the neighboring Arab territories of Jordan, Egypt and Syria. Now that it controls parts of those countries, it is directly confronted with responsibility for more than one million Arabs, about half of them refugees of 1947-48. Any settlement of the Palestine conflict, which Israel would find acceptable, will bring many of these territories and a substantial number of their Arab inhabitants under its permanent jurisdiction. Israeli public opinion, press comment and government attitudes are daily becoming more intense in their determination that there be no return to the prewar boundaries. Each day that passes without tangible indications of a major change in Arab policy toward Israel further entrenches the new status quo and whets Israeli appetites for retaining larger slices of the "new territories."
