    Pappe views Plan D as a blueprint for ethnic cleansing. (Pappe, Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, 2007, p,. xii). I agree with Morris, however, that Plan D "was not a political blueprint for the expulsion of Palestine's Arabs: it was governed by MILITARY considerations and was geared to achieving military aims." (Morris, Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem,Cambridge, 1989 [1987], p. 62). Some Arabs were expelled from their villages, which hosted local militia. (ibid., p. 63). This was done on both sides. Arabs expelled Jewish communities from every site they overran. (Morris, Arab-Israeli War, in Crimes of War. ed. Gutman and Rieff, Norton, 1999, p. 32). If the Jews had not taken this step, they might have lost the war. And what would have happened then? As the Secretary-General of the Arab League put it: "This will be a war of extermination and a momentous massacre." (quoted in Hamilton, God, Guns and Israel, Sutton, p. 248). That would have been the price of losing.
