Palestinians admit they left their homes on their own to facilitate destruction of Israel

In 1978 Maldivians became al-Akh (brothers) with the Palestinian people. Money was raised to "liberate" al-Goodhs. One could argue that we Maldivians have killed Israelis with suicide bombs and home made rockets since we gave Yasser Arafat some money to fight.
Although we are al-Akh with the Palestinians, there is very little we know about them. But that does not make our brotherhood any less. Palestine (and the destruction of Israel) is more important to Maldivians than Maldives itself!
Maldivians think that the refugees were expelled by Israel. But the truth is the Arabs who became refugees in 1948 were not expelled by Israel but left on their own to facilitate the destruction of Israel. The Palestinian Arabs are VICTIMS Of THEMSELVES,THE ARAB WORLD, and the ISLAMIC UMMA, for their refusal to ACCEPT the EXISTENCE of ISRAEL.

Here is a collection of statements from Palestinians, admitting that the Arabs who became refugees in 1948 were not expelled by Israel but left on their own to facilitate the destruction of Israel. (From a bulletin by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook for Palestinian Media Watch
with thanks to Jihad Watch)
The Arabs who became refugees in 1948 were not expelled by Israel but left on their own to facilitate the destruction of Israel, according to a senior Palestinian journalist writing in a Palestinian daily. This plan to leave Israel was initiated by the Arab states fighting Israel, who promised the people they would be able to return to their homes in a few days once Israel was defeated. The article in Al-Ayyam concludes that these Arab states are responsible for the Arab refugee problem.

A backbone of Palestinian English-language propaganda is the myth that Israel expelled hundreds of thousands of Arabs from Israel and created Arab refugees. But in recent years, PMW has documented an increasing willingness among Palestinians to openly blame the Arab states and not Israel.

Following are five such statements of blame, starting with this most recent article and including testimony from refugees themselves and corroboration by Palestinian leaders. Clearly, there is a growing Palestinian willingness to blame the Arab leaders, which corroborates Israel's historical record.

1. Jawad Al Bashiti, Palestinian journalist in Jordan, writing in Al-Ayyam, May 13, 2008

"Remind me of one real cause from all the factors that have caused the "Palestinian Catastrophe" [the establishment of Israel and the creation of refugee problem], and I will remind you that it still exists... The reasons for the Palestinian Catastrophe are the same reasons that have produced and are still producing our Catastrophes today.
During the Little Catastrophe, meaning the Palestinian Catastrophe the following happened: the first war between Arabs and Israel had started and the "Arab Salvation Army" came and told the Palestinians: 'We have come to you in order to liquidate the Zionists and their state. Leave your houses and villages, you will return to them in a few days safely. Leave them so we can fulfill our mission (destroy Israel) in the best way and so you won't be hurt.' It became clear already then, when it was too late, that the support of the Arab states (against Israel) was a big illusion. Arabs fought as if intending to cause the "Palestinian Catastrophe". [Al-Ayyam, May 13 2008]

2. Mahmoud Al-Habbash, Palestinian Journalist in PA official daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, December 13, 2006

"...The leaders and the elites promised us at the beginning of the "Catastrophe" in 1948, that the duration of the exile will not be long, and that it will not last more than a few days or months, and afterwards the refugees will return to their homes, which most of them did not leave only until they put their trust in those "Arkuvian" promises made by the leaders and the political elites. Afterwards, days passed, months, years and decades, and the promises were lost with the strain of the succession of events..." [Term "Arkuvian," is after Arkuv - a figure from Arab tradition - who was known for breaking his promises and for his lies."] "
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, December 13, 2006]

3. Asmaa Jabir Balasimah, Woman who fled Israel in 1948, Al-Ayyam, May 16, 2006

"We heard sounds of explosions and of gunfire at the beginning of the summer in the year of the "Catastrophe" [1948]. They told us: The Jews attacked our region and it is better to evacuate the village and return, after the battle is over. And indeed there were among us [who fled Israel] those who left a fire burning under the pot, those who left their flock [of sheep] and those who left their money and gold behind, based on the assumption that we would return after a few hours."
[Al-Ayyam, May 16, 2006]

4. Son of man who fled in 1948, PA TV 1999

An Arab viewer called Palestinian Authority TV and quoted his father, saying that in 1948 the Arab District Officer ordered all Arabs to leave Palestine or be labeled traitors. In response, Arab MK Ibrahim Sarsur, then Head of the Islamic Movement in Israel, cursed those leaders, thus acknowledging Israel's historical record.

"Mr. Ibrahim [Sarsur]. I address you as a Muslim. My father and grandfather told me that during the "Catastrophe" [in 1948], our district officer issued an order that whoever stays in Palestine and in Majdel [near Ashkelon - Southern Israel] is a traitor, he is a traitor."

Response from Ibrahim Sarsur, now MK, then Head of the Islamic Movement in Israel:
"The one who gave the order forbidding them to stay there bears guilt for this, in this life and the Afterlife throughout history until Resurrection Day."
[PA TV April 30, 1999]

5. Fuad Abu Higla, senior Palestinian, Al-Hayat Al-Jadidah, March 19, 2001

Fuad Abu Higla, then a regular columnist in the official PA daily Al Hayat Al Jadida, wrote an article before an Arab Summit, which criticized the Arab leaders. One of the failures he cited, in the name of a prisoner, was that an earlier generation of Arab leaders "forced" them to leave Israel in 1948, again placing the blame for the flight on the Arab leaders.

"I have received a letter from a prisoner in Acre prison, to the Arab summit:
To the [Arab and Muslim] Kings and Presidents, poverty is killing us, the symptoms are exhausting us and the souls are leaving our body, yet you are still searching for the way to provide aid, like one who is looking for a needle in a haystack or like the armies of your predecessors in the year of 1948, who forced us to leave [Israel], on the pretext of clearing the battlefields of civilians...So what will your summit do now?"
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, March 19, 2001]

It is clear from these statements that there is general acknowledgment among Palestinians that Arab leaders bear responsibility for the mass flight of Arabs from Israel in 1948, and were the cause of the "refugee" problem. Furthermore, the fact that this information has been validated by public figures and refugees in the Palestinian Authority media itself confirms that this responsibility is well-known - even though for propaganda purposes its leaders continue to blame Israel publicly for "the expulsion."

    Attacking Dhivehi Christian does not change the fact that Palestinians are coming out and telling the truth about how they left their homes

    Don't question liberty! Anonymous has every right to say things which Dhivehi Christian does not want to hear.

    Nobody is saying the PLO are exempt from politicizing their struggle for a homeland(IN THEIR OWN HOMELAND), or that the Arab League has in effect turned a blind eye to the conflict.

    And have you wondered why palestinians left? do you think the mass exodus was voluntary or was it necessitated through intimidation and mass slaughter?
    And them having left their homeland was as a direct consequence of forced jewish settlements, of razing of hundreds of palestinians villages, and a policy of culpable deniability and ambiguity as to the existance of an entity as The Palestinian or A Palestine.

    you parade around as an intellectual, as a prophet of free thought and human rights, and yet you fail to see the bias in your own words! The violations of the most basic human rights of the Palestinian people by the occupying power stands clear as daylight and yet to pretend to be unaware of this.

    You make me sick. I refuse to engage in discourse with people who would stoop to such sewage depths to find ammunition through whatever means to degrade the moslem faith.

    I have the balls to call a spade as a spade- be it israel or saudi arabia.
    I choose to not write filth on Christianity NOT because I dont hv anything to write. Of course you people being good Christians and ethical atheists, just can't help but attack my faith. and then have the nerve of accuse me of attacking you people.

    so pls spare me your illusions of ignorance on the israeli-palestinian conflict.

  13. Dhivehi Christian6:51 PM

    The easiest way to dispel your illusion of ignorance is to actually read the newspaper archives of Egypt and Jordan of 1948. Egyptian leaders of the time like Prime Minister Mahmoud Pasha an-Nukrashi, veteran politician Moustafa Pasha al-Nahas and King Farouk were actually proud of their war tactic of "persuading" the Arabs of Israel to leave their homes.

    Anonymous, anonymous and anonymous, have you personally read any of these archives? I have.

    ofcos he woudn' way can the dude NOT justify the actions of the jewish state (a policy of ethnic cleansing by all acounts), at the risk of foregoing the biblical prophecy of the coming of christ. A prophecy that requires the return of the jews to the promised land.
