Israel Expelled Arabs, Committed Atrocities Against Them, Dispossessed Them.
"'Israel, as a society, also suppressed the memory of its war against the local Palestinians, because it couldn't really come to terms with the fact that it expelled Arabs, committed atrocities against them, dispossessed them. This was like admitting that the noble Jewish dream of statehood was stained forever by a major injustice committed against the Palestinians and that the Jewish state was born in sin.' I think a lot of people would be surprised to hear that the author of these words is the former Foreign Minister of Israel." - AMY GOODMAN
