Palestinian Arab Refugee: In 1948, Arab Leaders Told Us To Go to Jordan

While the Israel-haters (and some in the media) would have people believe that the genesis of palestinian Arab refugees was Israel expelling them all during the 1948 war, some pesky (to the propagandists) palestinian Arab survivors are around to tell a different tale.

He’s not the first pesky palestinian Arab survivor to confirm what Benny Morris already told us: while there were expulsions (as can happen during wartime with a hostile population), many of the 700,000 Arab refugees were ordered or advised by their fellow Arabs to abandon their homes. They thought they would be returning soon after, victorious.

In fact, another elderly palestinian Arab, with a penchant for advocating for his right of return (to his 4-year-term job, 13 additional times after it ended) has even admitted as much.

Maybe Netflix needs to stream a movie about this, since it is actually accurate.
