Many arab notables and top politicians at the time regretted that they had circulated false rumours that women had been raped and other atrocities had taken place. When confronted with the reality that no rapes had taken place, Hussein Khaled, a Palestinian leader, said "we have to say this so that Arab armies will come to liberate us from the Jews". Hazam Nusseibi, a journalist at the time, told the BBC years later that the deliberate fabrication of the rape charge "was our biggest mistake" since it caused the Palestinians to flee in terror. Many examples along the same lines can be quoted. And don't forget that the refugee problem was created by a war initiated by the Arabs.
