I don't get this article - why can't history be confused? Everyone knows that the Palestinians were expelled or fled and then prevented from returning. Sure, this may have been done out of a belief it was necessary and that the creation of a Jewish state was of more moral importance than the rights of the indigenous population, (the view of the Zionist leadership) but this still does not detract from the human tragedy the Palestinians suffered. In fact unless both narratives are taught people will either fail to understand why the nascent Israeli state acted why it did or why Palestinians have maintained a sense of grievance for the past sixty years. To be honest, I think the teaching of both narratives is essential if a just peace and reconciliation is ever to be arrived at.
