    Had the Arabs accepted the partition plan, there would've been no possibility for Israel to expell the Palestinians, period. By the way, the Yishuv implored the UN Security Council to send forces on the ground, to implement the partition plan, so that it would be respected by both sides. This is a fact, and you can't deny it either. Unfortunately, the UN refused and the Arabs took advantage of the situation to launch an annihilation war against Israel and perpetrate atrocities against Israeli civilians. These are the circumstances under which the Palestinians were expelled, once Israel managed to push back the Arab agression. Israel didn't attack first. I know, it's very difficult for you guys to acknowledge this reality, but you can't deny history. By the way, we didn't need the help of New Historians to know that 10% of Israeli Jews were expelled from their homes in 1948. The Arabs did it with pride!
