Abstract : Over the years, there have been approximately three hundred and thirty articles written about the Greater and Lesser Tunb Islands. The question of rightful ownership of the Islands, since their illegal invasion and occupation by the Iranian Government, remains. This monograph reviews the historical documentation which demonstrates, without a shadow of a doubt, that Greater Tunb, Lesser Tunb and Abu Musa originally belonged to the United-Arab Emirates who remain firm in their claim to original legal ownership.
