The "Nakba" Debunked By Steven Plaut:...
The world media are filled with Goebbels-style Big Lies about the "Nakba," the supposed "catastrophe" and "ethnic cleansing" of Arabs when Israel was created in 1948.... But now an interesting source has come along to debunk this massive campaign of lies and disinformation....
East Prussia from 1923 to 1939 between the wars
Consider the following citation, emphasis added: "The Arab armies seemingly entered Palestine (in 1948) to protect the Palestinians from the Zionist tyranny but, instead, they abandoned them, FORCED THEM TO EMIGRATE AND TO LEAVE THEIR HOMELAND, imposed upon them a political and ideological blockade and threw them into prisons similar to the ghettos in which the Jews used to live in Eastern Europe, as if we were condemned to change places with them. The Arab States succeeded... in scattering the Palestinian people and in destroying their unity."... Ok, current events students, name the source for that quote!...

(Item cited... in the weekly column by Ben Dror Yemini in Maariv, May 27, 2011)... And that is not the ONLY useful citation from Abu Mazen, also cited in... the same column by Yemini. It turns out that last week the very same... Abu Mazen had an article in the NY Times, in which he claims to tell... his own personal "Nakba" family story.

Well, Ben Dror Yemini does some homework. The UN resolution, first of... all, was in November 1947. The battle for Safed took place in May... 1948. Second, Abu Mazen's family in Safed was very wealthy, with more... than enough ready capital to coast along comfortably for quite some... time.
