Right of Return Foundation of 'Freedom, Justice, and Peace'

No one in the comments section of Comment is Free was writing on behalf of the Palestinians inalienable right of return in response to Seth Freedman's "Making the First Move." My comment:

The right of return is non-negotiable. Article 13, Section 2 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country."

"The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which turns 60 next year, emphasizes in its opening preamble that 'recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.'"

Palestinians all over the world are patiently working toward realization of their inalienable rights. In London this weekend prominant Palestinians and their supporters are meeting regarding a one state solution:

And please note excerpts from the Final Statement of the Eighth Annual Meeting of the Palestine Right-of-Return Coalition held 1-4 November in Uppsala, Sweden:

"[Coalition] affirm their rejection of all statements on the right of return which aim to confuse and alter its true meaning. The only just solution for the Palestine refugee issue is their return to their original homes and lands.

"Denial of this right will perpetuate this conflict and cause more suffering and anguish. Respect of this right would be an important contribution towards ending one of the major causes of tension and strife in current international relations."
