The right of return is one of the most controversial issues when talking about a solution for a Palestinian state. According to UN resolution 194, Palestinians have the right to return to their homes from which they were displaced in 1948. However, exercising this right is impossible with the restrictions imposed by the Israeli government preventing more than 5.6 million Palestinian refugees from returning to their original cities. Thousands of Palestinians who call Jerusalem home, today live under the threat of ethnic cleansing through forced displacement, while Jewish people who have no origins in Palestinian cities can live wherever they like.
