The Refugees of 1948 - what the PSC don't want you to know

And that goes for our friend ibrows

“The plight of Arab refugees, consequent upon the war that was started by the Arab League, has not only aroused genuine humanitarian concern,” remarked the London Jewish Chronicle in December 1948, “but has also formed the pretext of much unscrupulous propaganda against the Jews.”
....

“The truth is surely quite otherwise. The plight of these unfortunate people is a direct result of the chaotic condition into which the British Government allowed Palestine to drift when its troops were withdrawn last May, and for which the United Nations must bear a large share of responsibility through its failure to establish an effective regime to succeed the Mandatory Government. Long before the last British troops left the country this newspaper joined the ranks of those who warned the Government and the United Nations that a vast toll of human suffering was inevitable unless effective steps are taken to enforce the November 29 resolution. It is patently unjust to saddle Jews with the responsibility for what has occurred, and naive for Jews to be misled into thinking that the responsibility is collectively theirs.”

I provided proof of the Palestinian population by quoting a 1931 census, and you respond with a blog, by some random women, is this your evidence??

Come on, Benny Morris own word refutes this, its not credible evidence you citing but propaganda.

There is no mention here of the Dalet Plan, the blueprint for expulsion of the Palestinians. And likewise as i have quoted on here several times previously, Morris quotes an IDF report that claims that the massacre of Deir Yassin was the most significant factor in causing the Palestinian exdous in 1948, then Morris devotes to whole chapters on his book 'the birth of the Palestinian refugee problem', to how Israel prevented the return of these refugees. So it wasn't quite all the British fault really was it. And this view is based on Morris use of IDF archive sources, not a random nobody writing on her blog

Israel has a growing Arab population, both within the 1948 ceasefire lines and in Judea and Samaria. A fifth of Israel is Arab. Numerous Arab countries, which once had large Jewish populations, are now practically Judenrein. Baghdad, within living memory for some, was 40% Jewish. Now not one Jew lives in he whole country.

Who do you think has been expert at ethnic cleansing?

Hypocrite Jew hater.

"There is no mention here of the Dalet Plan, the blueprint for expulsion of the Palestinians" - What's your source for this statement?

Plan Dalet was not "the blueprint for the expulsion of the Palestinians".

Racist scum
