Abstract

This monograph conclusively proves that the plot of land leased by Israel to the United States in 1989 as the future site of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem is confiscated Palestinian refugee property. The research for this study is based on archival material in Washington, D.C. (State Department), New York (United Nations Conciliation Commission for Palestine), London (Public Records Office), and Jerusalem (the Israeli Land Registry and Municipality) as well as on extensive documentation obtained from the heirs of the original owners many of whom are now U.S. citizens.
