Introduction

There has been a significant Palestinian refugee problem for the last fifty years, who or what is responsible for this problem? The Palestinian refugee problem has been around for the last fifty years.

This source is very biased as it only gives us the Palestinian views and completely disregards the Israeli point of view.
