Mr. Rogers, or anyone who knows: Why did the Arab leaders tell the inhabitants to abandon their homes? Were they planning to bomb the entire place and wanted the natives out of harm's way until the danger was over and all the Jews were eliminated? Did they foresee that Israel would win anyway and so they wanted to create a huge refugee problem to catch the world's sympathy? I am not sure what to believe.
