al-Majdal;Mar2012, Issue 48, p24
The article focuses on the move of Israel to deny the Palestinians' right to return to their country in law, policy, and practice. It notes that the Israeli apartheid regime in the Palestinian context has been impelled by the colonists' ideological need to cleanse the land of its indigenous inhabitants and replace them with the Jewish settlers. It mentions that the denial of refugee return is the core of the Israeli colonial-apartheid plan as a whole.
