The Arabs should conduct their wives & children to safe areas until the fighting has died down" The Jordanian Newspaper Falastin! on Feb 19tg 1949 wrote: "The Arab States encouraged the Palestine Arabs to leave their homes 'temporarily' in order to be out of the way of the Arab invasion armies" On the part played by the Chief spokesman for the Combined Arab States & 'Secretary General' of the Arab League himself, Habib Issa of the New York-Lebanese daily 'Al Hoda on June 8th 1951 wrote: "The Secretary General of the Arab League, Azzam Pasha, assured the Arab peoples that the occupation of Palestine & of Tel Aviv would be as simple as a military promenade ..He pointed out that they were already on the frontiers & that all the 'millions the Jews had spent on Land & Economic developement' would be 'easy booty', for it would be a simple matter to 'throw Jews into the Mediterranean.....Brotherly advice was given to the Arabs of Palestine to leave their land, homes & property & to stay temporarily in 'neighbourly fraternal States', lest the 'guns of the invading Arab armies mow them down" The british Officer who had done the most in the years prior to 1948 to build up the then Transjordanian army, General Glubb Pasha himself wrote on August 12th 48, in the London Daily Mail: "The Arab civilians panicked & fled ignominiously. Villages were frequently abandoned before they were threatened by the progress of war" Most poignant of all is the comment of a 'refugee' "The Governments told us: Get out so that we can get in. So we got out, but they did not get in" as quoted on September 6th 1954, in the Jordanian Daily, Al Difaa.
