By Lior Ben Haim
In recent years, it is repeatedly claimed that the State of Israel has deviated from international Law and benchmarks concerning the rights of Arab refugees in matters of lands and reparations. Such claims attempt to create the misconception that the State of Israel exercises a discriminatory policy against its Arab population.
