YOUTUBE:  The Forgotten Refugees  (23 August 2012)


"A film about the mass exodus of up to one million Jews from Arab countries. In 1945, up to one million Jews lived in the Middle East outside of the Palestine Mandate and in North Africa.  Within a few years, only a few thousand remained. This is the story of the thousands who fled their homes, who endured in refugee camps, and who today quietly carry the memory of a destroyed civilisation. The Forgotten Refugees explores the history and destruction of ME Jewish communities, some of which had existed for over 2,500 years. Featuring testimony from Jews who fled Egypt, Libya, Iraq and Yemen, these personal stories of refugees are interspersed with dramatic archival footage, including rescue missions of Yemenite and Iraqi Jews."


The Guardian Continues to Promote Endless Misery for 'Refugees'  (16 February 2011)


"Here’s the latest on Palestinian refugees from The Guardian:..."


The Palestinian Refugees: Why is Everyone Lying to Them?  (19 October 2010)


"Palestinian Authority leaders are now saying that they will never recognize Israel as a Jewish state because that would mean that they would have to give up the 'right of return' for millions of Palestinians to their original homes inside Israel..."


Surprise, Surprise! Palestinians Won't Recognize Jewish State  (14 September 2010)


"The Palestinian exodus during the Arab war on nascent Israel is part of history. Most fled out of fear of war, others because they were urged to make way for 'victorious' Arab armies, and some - but certainly not most - because Israeli troops drove them out in the heat of battle. Other mid-20th century refugee problems were all quickly settled (the millions who fled Pakistan and India, for example). But the Arab refugee problem was made to fester with the compliance of the Palestinian leadership..."


Palestinian Refugees: Frozen in Time, Addicted to Pity  (07 August 2010)

"Refugees? Canadians, even if their families have lived here for centuries, know something about refugees. We know Hungarians, we know Vietnamese, we know many others. We admire their energy and their accomplishments. Observing them can be a bracing lesson in human tenacity under adverse circumstances. But that pattern doesn't cover Palestinian refugees. They are a special case..."


Arab Leaders Caused Refugee Problem  (28 July 2008)


"The conventional wisdom today suggests the new state of Israel in 1948 was to blame for the creation of the Arab refugee problem..."


Big Lies: Demolishing the Myths of the Propaganda War Against Israel  (Chapters 1 and 2)  (2005)


"The Arab version of the tragic fate of Arab refugees who fled from the Palestine Mandate before and during the 1948 and from Israel immediately after the war, has so thoroughly dominated the thinking of even well-educated historians, commentators, journalists and politicians, that it is almost a given that the creation of the State of Israel caused the flight of almost a million, hapless, helpless and hopeless Arab refugees..."


The Arab Lie Whose Time Has Come...  (21 April 2004)


"An Israeli veteran of the 1948 War for Independence dissects the revisionist myth of Palestinian innocence: To back up its demands for full repatriation to Israel of Arab refugees and their descendants, the Palestinian leadership has—for over fifty years—busily spun the story of their 'Naqba,' their catastrophic flight from Palestine during 1947-48, in all the media available to them..."


The Great Refugee Scam  (19 September 2003)


"The story of the Arabs who left the coastal areas of Palestine in the spring of 1948 encapsulates one of the great international frauds of the 20th century..."


The World's Collective Amnesia  (19 September 2002)


"There's not the slightest historical evidence to suggest Arabs were expelled in significant numbers - certainly not by Jews. I know this statement is going to be met with gasps, guffaws and gnashing of teeth. Nevertheless, let me defend it, not with my own words, not with the words of Jews and Israelis, but with the words of Arabs closer to the time of the events..."
