    Like the question of Apartheid, this question gets warped into its translation to the general public. The question of ethnic cleansing is applied to two issues. One is the actions of the 1948 war. Of course, the most prominent book on this is by Ilan Pappe, but I am sorry to say I have found errors in the text on some of the major citations when comparing his work to primary sources. So, I think that book needs more debate and polishing. The other issue is minorities. If there is a campaign to place policies that will ouster people (by force or by will) from the land, the best place to see it is the minority communities. So, lets take Palestinian Christians. At Balfour, Christians were 20% of the population and Jews were about 13% the rest being Muslims of various sects. There are other factors too. Sabeel has a good survey on it. http://www.sabeel.org/pdfs/the%20sabeel%20survey_.pdf or check out HCEF.
