It's insane to deny the Nakba (as well as denying the Holocaust). About 800 000 palestinians left, fled, or were forced to leave what is Israel today. Some people who left did so after being persuaded by the arab armies. But most were terrified to be butchered by some of the irregular jewish and fled. Others were forced to leave, such as after the battle in Ramleh and Lydd, when hundred died after a long walk to Arab controlled land (about 50 000 on the road). And about Ben Gurion, he was the master planner. "The Commander of the Palmach, Yigal Allon asked him, ?What shall we do with the Arabs?? Ben-Gurion answered (or according to another version, gestured with his hands), ?expel them?. This was immediately communicated to the Army Headquarters and the expulsion implemented". The Israeli tactics were clear, commit a few massacres and create panic among palestinians. It's succeeded. Why deny it?
