    '...contrary to usual zionist invention, zionist invaded, slaughtered and occupied MORE THAN HALF OF all Palestinian towns and villages BEFORE arab army declared war (15 May 1948).'. Most refugees left their homes as per instruction given to them by Arab leaders. Any way, ALL of them moved out AFTER the Arab rejection of UN resolution 181 from Nov. 29th, 1947. A reminder to the Arab position that day: Saudi Arabia ? '?the Government of Saudi Arabia registers, on this historic occasion, the fact that it does not consider itself bound by the resolution adopted today by the General Assembly. Furthermore, it reserves to itself the full right to act freely in whatever way it deems fit?'. Iraq ? '?in the name of my Government, I wish to put on record that Iraq does not recognize the validity of this decision, will reserve freedom of action towards its implementation?'. Syria ? '?My country will never recognize such a decision. It will never agree to be responsible for it. Let the consequences be on the heads of others, not on ours?'. On May 15th, 1948, Arab League made good of its promises to reject Israel's existence, not to protect Palestine within the 1947 decision's boundaries.
