.@Amnesty doesn't understand international law.

#UNResolution194 does NOT provide a "right to return" for a number of reasons.

First of all, it is not international law. It is a General Assembly resolution. That's sort of basic.
@amnesty Secondly, the word "right" was deliberately excluded from the resolution - because there is no such right.

It only says "refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbours should be permitted to do so..."
@amnesty If it was a "right" it would apply whether they want to live in peace with Israel or not.

And, of course, most of them are not interested in living at peace in a Jewish state, which they reject.
