According to Palestinian Media Watch, the ‘Palestinian’ daily al-Ayyam admitted on May 13 that “the Arabs who became refugees in 1948 were not expelled by Israel but left on their own to facilitate the destruction of Israel…. 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.” So why haven’t you read this in the New York Times? Because this is yet another instance of the ‘Palestinians’ telling their ‘people’ one thing in Arabic and the world a different thing in English. In English, the ‘Palestinians’ continue to blame Israel for creating the ‘refugee’ problem.
