Palestinian Refugee Contradicts Claims of "Expulsion"

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reports that a elderly refugee from the 1948 Arab-Israeli war explained to a Palestinian newspaper that she was told by Arab leaders to flee her village.

Such testimony is important since the press still occasionally refers, for example, to "the expulsion of 750,000 Palestinians." This false claim is inconsistent with the woman's testimony, as well as other detailed evidence revealing that most refugees were not "expelled." (In fact, many Jews in Israel attempted to persuade Palestinians to stay put.)

See PMW's translation of the woman's comments, along with two other similar statements, here.
