Deputy FM Daniel Ayalon urges Arab world to acknowledge historic liability for displacing Jews who once lived in Arab nations; creating Palestinian refugee problem by warring with Israel
ed note–the ability of these people to bend and contort the truth into a piece of modern art that bears no resemblance to reality is without any comparison.
The ‘displacing of Jews in Arabs lands took place for 2 reasons–
1) Israel sent her terrorist agents into arab countries and blew up synagogues and Jewish neighborhoods in order to drive the Jews out of these Arab lands,
2) Due to what the jews were doing to the Palestinians, it naturally made Jews living in Arab lands targets for retribution.
Furthermore, Ayalon’s attributing the Palestinian refugee problem to the Arabs ‘warring with Israel’ is an absolute LIE, as Israel intended ALL ALONG to drive the Palestinians out, war or no war–
The state of Israel must invent dangers, and to do this it must adopt the methods of provocation and revenge…. And above all, let us hope for a new war with the Arab countries so that we may finally get rid of our troubles and acquire our space.” —From the diary of Moshe Sharett, Israeli’s first Foreign Minister from 1948-1956, and Prime Minister from 1954-1956.
”We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting off of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population.” —Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, May 1948
“The thesis that the danger of genocide was hanging over us in June 1967 and that Israel was fighting for its physical existence was only a bluff, a deliberate lie which we developed after the war to justify our actions.” —Israeli General Matityahu Peled
”Between ourselves it must be clear that there is no room for both peoples together in this country. We shall not achieve our goal if the Arabs are in this small country. The only solution is Eretz Israel, or at least all the land west of Jordan River without Arabs. There is no room for compromise on this point … There is no other way than to transfer the Arabs from here to neighboring countries – all of them. We must not leave a single village, not a single tribe.” —Joseph Weitz, head of the Jewish Agency’s Colonization Department in 1940.
“The present map of Palestine was drawn by the British mandate. The Jewish people have another map which our youth and adults should strive to fulfill —From the Nile to the Euphrates.” —David Ben Gurion, Israel’s first Prime Minister
“We have to kill all the Palestinians unless they are resigned to live here as slaves.” —Chairman Heilbrun of the Committee for the Re-election of General Shlomo Lahat, the mayor of Tel Aviv, October 1983.
“The Palestinians should be crushed like grasshoppers, their heads smashed against boulders and walls.” —Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir.
“The most spectacular event in the contemporary history of Palestine – more spectacular than the creation of the Jewish state itself – has been the wholesale evacuation of its Arab population which has swept with it thousands of Arabs from areas threatened and/or occupied by us outside our boundaries.” —Moshe Shertok, Israeli Foreign Minister
The Foreign Ministry held a conference Tuesday, during which it presented a special report on “Jewish refugees from Arab nations.”
Deputy Foreign Minister Daniel Ayalon urged the Arab world to recognize its historic responsibility for displacing Jews who once lived in Arab nations and making them de-facto refugees.
“The Arab League must accept responsibility and recognize that they are the ones who caused the displacement of Jews from Arab countries,” he said.
Ayalon further said that Arab nations should acknowledge their own role in creating Palestinian refugees, displaced by their wars with Israel.
The deputy foreign minister added that Israel will insist that Palestinian refugees will be absorbed in the future Palestinian state alone – the same way Jewish refugees were absorbed in the State of Israel.
“Today, about 50% of Israelis are refugees and descendants of refugees from those Arab nations. They have assimilated completely and have contributed to Israel’s inception and advancement.”
Ayalon added: “Just like the State of Israel took in the Jewish refugees, the Arab refugees who left Mandate-era Palestine should be afforded the same treatment.”
The premise, he added, “Is doubly true in light of the Palestinian Authority’s inception and the fact that its existence does not justify the existence of the Arab refugee camps.”
