It's always been my understanding, from reading the mildly anti-Israeli British sources of the time, that the Arabs living in the newly formed state of Israel left in May 1948 at the urging of the surrounding Arab countries, who had all vowed to drive the Jews into the sea and destroy the fledgling state. Their governments promised the departing Arabs that they could have their pick of the Jews' land and possessions after the purge was complete.

When the Arabs failed to destroy Israel, the Israelis refused to allow the former Arab residents to return, which shouldn't surprise anyone. Those Arab residents who hadn't left in the first place were allowed to remain in peace.

This article sounds like revisionist hooey to me.

All the property in Jaffa that belongs to Arabs who left are paid rent money for this property. The Jewish state has been very careful from the beginning of individual rights. Not all the Arabs were moslums, but many are of christian religions.

Too bad for the anti-Jewish propagandists that there wasn't a single contemporaneous account of this alleged drive of the Palestinian arabs into the sea.

Isn't it interesting how -- time after time -- the Palestinian arabs coopt the worst things that they try to do to the innocent Israelis and claim that they were done to the Palestinian arabs instead?

Karma Nabulsi: a person who lives to hate Israel and is a full professor at Oxford.

I wasn't aware of this side of the story. I notice that the author, Professor Nabulsi, is teaching in England. Perhaps this helps explain why the Brits are aligned sympathetically with the Palestinians and against Israel.
