Most Israeli apologists regurgitate the lie that it was the Palestinians' own fault that their homes and land were stolen because "they decided to leave" as part of some sort of an organized Arab plan. This has been exposed as another Zionist propaganda lie decades ago. But even one of the premises of that propaganda is a lie. The premise is that Palestinians that did not leave and instead remained in what became Israel did not have their homes and land were stolen. This is a false premise and has been exposed as well:
cover For those who thought it was only the Palestinians who fled and were refused entry back into Israel that lost property and land without reparations, this book is a wake up call. In the first 8 years, the Jewish State took away a staggering 50% of all the land owned by Palestinians remaining in Israel. The shocking fact is some 39,000 Palestinians who never left were robbed anyway! "Israel seized property and land from some 39,000 Palestinians who escaped expulsion and remained in Israel. It was never retuned, and these individuals never received compensation although they are citizens of Israel." (from endnote 67) The Palestinians: In Search of a Just Peace by Cheryl A. Rubenberg
