Refugees and Ethnic Cleansing

“Everyone has the right to leave any country,
including his own, and to return to his country.”

— Universal Declaration of Human Rights

“On October 31, 1948, the commander of the Northern Front, Moshe Carmel, issued an order in writing to his units to expedite the removal of the Arab population...There is no doubt in my mind that this order originated with Ben-Gurion [the first Prime Minister of Israel]”

— Israeli Historian Benny Morris, in Ha’aretz
New Book on the Israel Lobby
