Your view is only too if you follow writers like Ilan Pappé and al-Khalidi, who are extremist spokespeople for the Arabs. I prefer to follow Benny Morris and others. Morris has stated that Plan Dalet '"was not tantamount to pre-planning, and did not issue in the production of a policy or master plan of expulsion; the Yishuv and its military forces did not enter the 1948 War, which was initiated by the Arab side, with a policy or plan for expulsion." Beyond that, we know that large numbers of Arabs fled on the orders of Arab military commanders, on the presumption that they would quickly defeat the Jews. What happened in Haifa shows this clearly: Jews appealing to Arab inhabitants to stay, Arab leaders pushing them to leave. And are you so naive as to think a bi-National state would stay that way? As it is, Israel was created to be a Jewish state. Why would the Jews have wanted to throw that away. If it had been the second, third or tenth Jewish state, that might have been reasonable, but you know perfectly well it was and is the only Jewish state. Is that wrong? I'm Irish: we have just one Irish state, and nobody tries to drive us out.
