    The confiscated property of 850000 Jews from Arab countries driven out by pogroms etc has to be refunded. They have been avoiding the bill for 60 years now. Benny Morris disagrees with your "Hagganah sources" and here is what the Arabs said themselves. . In listing the reasons for the Arab failure in 1948, Khaled al-Azm (Syrian Prime Minister) notes that "the fifth factor was the call by the Arab governments to the inhabitants of Palestine to evacuate it and leave for the bordering Arab countries. Since 1948, it is we who have demanded the return of the refugees, while it is we who made them leave. We brought disaster upon a million Arab refugees by inviting them and bringing pressure on them to leave.-Khaled el-Azm, after the 1948 War in his 1972 memoir . "The 15th May, 1948, arrived...On that day the mufti of Jerusalem appealed to the Arabs of Palestine to leave the country, because the Arab armies were about to enter and fight in their stead."-Cairo`s Akhbar el Yom, 10/12/63.
