Declaration 194 (Dec/11/1948) was adopted towards the end of the Arab- Israeli war. The Declaration of the General Assembly has legal force only if those implied accept them as valid. Article 11 requires that “refugees wishing to return to their homes and live in peace with their neighbors should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property which, under principles of international law or in equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible”. In other words, the Arabs who recognize Israel must be compensated or allowed to return to their homes (this is not a legal obligation). The Declaration also required the establishment of a UN Conciliation Commission to enable peace between Israel and the Arabs. Of the 58 members of the UN (1948), it was accepted by 35 counties, with 15 votes against and 8 abstentions. Significantly, the six countries of the Arab League represented in the UN and part of the conflict: Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Yemen voted against the resolution. Therefore, it lacked legal value. Israel was not a member of the United Nations at that time but it opposed and it still opposes part of the articles. The Palestinians were not directly consulted. Since the end of the 1960s, Article 11 has been dramatically cited since the Palestinians use it to argue an inexistent “right” of returning. The General Assembly reaffirms Declaration 194 every year since 1949. In 2008, Ehud Olmert offered to allow 100,000 Palestinians the entry to Israel as part of a final peace treaty.
