Thanks for response. While no instance of Bg approving Transfer exists no evidence exists of his attempts to stop it. His passive acceptance becomes evident if you read on a few pages further in Morrises book. While there was no official policy of transfer as such there was was an official policy of preventing the return of Refugees. You will find that on page 257. If there was one piece of evidence that Ben Gurion was as pure as you say, I would be more likely to accept your view on it but to me he just sat by and did nothing to stop the expulsion and this is recorded in some of the research I hve done. Speaking of speaking out of context, here is one from BG."We never expelled a single Arab'. Indeed not, it was far more than just one. Regards
