This paper examines the existing theories of the most commonly aspects that have constructed the Palestinian refugees national identity through different phases. It also analyzes the aspects of their exclusion according to demographic domains and variables. This paper uses a qualitative research method of narrative and semi-structured interviews to answer the questions. The results of this paper prove that the political use of the confessional composition of Lebanon has contributed at different stages to restrict gaining the basic humanitarian rights of Palestinians. However, gaining these rights will not affect or substitute the Palestinian right of return to Palestine. (Less)
