Consistent with International Law, The UN General Assembly adopted Resolution 194 on December 11, 1948. Paragraph 11 states: "the refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at 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." Resolution 194 has been affirmed over 130 times since its introduction in 1948. This resolution was further clarified by UN General Assembly Resolution 3236 which reaffirms in Subsection 2: "the inalienable right of Palestinians to return to their homes and property from which they have been displaced and uprooted, and calls for their return." Israel's admission to the UN was conditional on its acceptance of UN resolutions including 194.
