([O]ver four hundred Palestinian villages were depopulated in the 1947-1949 war. With houses mostly destroyed, mosques and churches put to other uses, and cemeteries plowed under, Palestinian communities were left geographically dispossessed. Palestinians have since carried their village names, memories, and possessions with them into the diaspora, transforming their lost past into local histories in the form of “village memorial books. Numbering more than 100 volumes in print, these books recount family histories, cultural traditions, and the details of village life, revealing Palestinian history through the eyes of Palestinians….this book analyzes individual and collective historical accounts of everyday life in pre-1948 Palestinian villages as composed today from the perspectives of these long-term refugees. – Stanford University Press.)

(“While other recent books on the subject have relied on Israeli and Zionist archival sources, Esber uses British archives and oral testimonies from Palestinian survivors as well as previously used sources to demonstrate that there was a purposeful, systematic pattern by which Zionist forces depopulated Palestinian cities and villages before the end of the British mandate on 15 May 1948 and the subsequent intervention of Arab armies.” – Maureen Claire Murphy, ei)

(“This remarkable book examines how the issue of the Palestinian villages whose inhabitants were expelled in 1948 has evolved in Israeli consciousness. Kadman looks at official Israeli discourse, kibbutz and moshav diaries and records, and the maps produced by the Israeli state to show in disturbing detail how the dispossession of the population of over 400 villages, most of which have since been destroyed, has been largely eliminated from the imaginary of most Israelis.” – Rashid Khalidi; “Poignant, sensitive, and compassionate, Kadman’s deeply-informed inquiry exposes graphically the process of 'demographic Judaization' of Palestine, in physical reality and cultural comprehension. It is an invaluable contribution…” - Noam Chomsky)

Violent uprooting and exile have permanent psychological effects, which, as the Jewish people discovered, are not necessarily assuaged by the passage of time. We need counter-narratives like this, because we have recently learnt that it is not only parochial but also dangerous to ignore the pain and rights of others.” - Independent)

Lentin, Ronit. Co-memory and Melancholia: Israelis Memorialising the Palestininan Nakba. Manchester: Manchester University Press, 2010. (This book explores the construction of collective memory in Israeli society, where the memory of the trauma of the Holocaust and of Israel’s war dead competes with the memory claims of the dispossessed Palestinians. Taking an auto-ethnographic approach, Ronit Lentin makes a contribution to social memory studies through a critical evaluation of the co-memoration of the Palestinian Nakba by Israeli Jews. Against a background of the Israeli resistance movement, Lentin’s central argument is that co-memorating the Nakba by Israeli Jews is motivated by an unresolved melancholia about the disappearance of Palestine and the dispossession of the Palestinians, a melancholia that shifts mourning from the lost object to the grieving subject. Lentin theorizes Nakba co-memory as a politics of resistance, counterpoising co-memorative practices by internally displaced Israeli Palestinians with Israeli Jewish discourses of the Palestinian right of return, and questions whether return narratives by Israeli Jews, courageous as they may seem, are ultimately about Israeli Jewish self-healing rather than justice for Palestine. – Manchester University Press)

Hon. Lord Gilmour, The Guardian, UK)

Masalha, Nur. The Palestine Nakba: Decolonising History, Narrating the Subaltern, Reclaiming Memory.  London: Zed, 2004. (Masalha argues that to write more truthfully about the Nakba is not just to practice a professional historiography but a moral imperative. The struggles of the ordinary refugees to publicize the truth about the Nakba is a vital way of protecting the refugees’ rights and keeping the hope for peace with justice alive. With the history, rights, and needs of the Palestinian refugees being excluded from recent Middle East peacemaking efforts and with the failure of both the Israeli state and international community to acknowledge the Nakba, 1948 as an “ethnic cleansing continues to underpin the Palestine-Israel conflict. This book is vital for a real understanding of the Israel-Palestine conflict. – Zed / This book is the most comprehensive and penetrating analysis available of the catastrophe that befell Arab Palestine and its people in 1948, known as the nakba. It shows how the expulsion and physical obliteration of the material traces of a people was followed by what Masalha calls 'memoricide': the effacement of their history, their archives, and their place-names, and a denial that they ever existed. – Rashid Khalidi, Columbia University / For an informative review of The Palestine Nakba see Bernard Regan's "Review of The Palestine Nakba,” Red Pepper, June 20, 2012.)

Masalha, Nur, ed. Catastrophe Remembered: Palestine, Israel, and the Internal Refugees. London: Zed, 2005. (Essays in memory of Edward Said. “This is a work of enormous significance by distinguished scholars of singular courage and integrity. The spirit and legacy of Edward Said are embodied in these papers that seek to rectify grave historical omissions and distortions pertaining to the plight and rights of the Palestinians, particularly in their displacement and exile. Such a narrative of affirmation, authenticity, and rectification is the essential antidote to the mendacious accounts of exclusion and denial that have perpetuated, and even justified, the continued victimisation of the Palestinian nation. The recognition of this grievous injustice, along with the admission of Israeli and global culpability, are the first steps in the quest for a just peace and hence for historical redemption. – Hanan Ashrawi) The foreward and introduction to Catastrophe Remembered can be read here.

Morris, Benny. The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem, 1947-1949.  Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1989. (In this first full-length study of the birth of the Palestinian refugee problem, the author traces the stages of the 1947-9 exodus against the backdrop of the first Arab-Israeli war and analyzes the varied causes of the flight. The Jewish and Arab decision-making involved, on national and local levels, military and political, is described and explained, as is the crystallization of Israel's decision to bar a refugee repatriation. Morris examines the subsequent fate of the abandoned Arab villages, lands, and urban neighborhoods, and looks at the international context of the war and the exodus. Benny Morris was born and educated in Israel and received his doctorate from the University of Cambridge. He is diplomatic correspondent for The Jerusalem Post. – Cambridge University Press)

Morris, Benny. The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem Revisited
Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2004. (
Morris' earlier work exposed the realities of how 700,000 Palestinians became refugees during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war. While the focus of this edition remains the war and exodus, new archival material considers what happened in Jerusalem, Jaffa and Haifa, and how these events led to the collapse of urban Palestine. Revealing battles and atrocities that contributed to the disintegration of rural communities, the story is harrowing. – Cambridge University Press) [Available online as a pdf here. ]

Pappe, Ilan. The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine. Oxford: Oneworld, 2007. [(Pappe accuses) Israel of ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity, beginning in the 1948 war for independence and continuing through the present. Focusing primarily on Plan D (Dalet, in Hebrew), conceived on March 10, 1948, Pappe demonstrates how ethnic cleansing was not a circumstance of war, but rather a deliberate goal of combat for early Israeli military units organized by David Ben-Gurion, whom Pappe labels the "architect of ethnic cleansing." The forced expulsion of 800,000 Palestinians between 1948 and 1949, Pappe argues, was part of a long-standing Zionist plan to manufacture an ethnically pure Jewish state. Framing his argument with accepted international and U.N. definitions of ethnic cleansing, Pappe follows with an excruciatingly detailed account of Israeli military involvement in the demolition and depopulation of hundreds of villages, and the expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Arab inhabitants. An accessible, learned resource, this volume provides important insights into the historical antecedents of today's conflict, but its conclusions will not be easy for everyone to stomach: Pappe argues that the ethnic cleansing of Palestine continues today, and calls for the unconditional return of all Palestinian refugees and an end to the Israeli occupation. – Publishers Weekly]

Roberts, Jo. Contested Land, Contested Memory: Israel's Jews and Arabs and the Ghosts of Catastrophe. Toronto: Dundurn, 2013. (“Jo Roberts, a British lawyer and anthropologist, focuses on how Israel contends with the Nakba, its 1948 ethnic cleansing of Palestine. She examines how “contested histories of the past” currently affect the lives of Jewish and Palestinian citizens of Israel. Roberts principally analyzes how the respective traumatic histories of Israelis and Palestinians shape their national identities and influence the possibility of their reconciliation. The author significantly contributes to the historiography of 1948, particularly in her presentation of the lesser-known experiences of displaced Palestinians who remained in what became Israel after the war. Roberts’s thoughtful book considers the traumas of the Holocaust for Jewish Israelis and the Nakba for Palestinian citizens of Israel through the lens of “social suffering. This anthropological perspective examines how individuals and communities perceive and respond to social forces of catastrophic violence.” – Rosemarie M. Esber in Electronic Intifada)

Lila Abu-Lughod is professor of anthropology and gender studies at Columbia University. [F]or Palestinians themselves, the iniquities of the present are experienced as a continuous replay of the injustice of the past. By focusing on memories of the Nakba or catastrophe of 1948, in which hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were dispossessed to create the state of Israel, the contributors to this volume illuminate the contemporary Palestinian experience and clarify the moral claims they make for justice and redress. The book's essays consider the ways in which Palestinians have remembered and organized themselves around the Nakba, a central trauma that continues to be refracted through Palestinian personal and collective memory. Analyzing oral histories and written narratives, poetry and cinema, personal testimony and courtroom evidence, the authors show how the continuing experience of violence, displacement, and occupation have transformed the pre-Nakba past and the land of Palestine into symbols of what has been and continues to be lost. – Columbia University Press)

The book’s terrain ranges from the ethnically-cleansed villages of the Galilee to the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Weaver focuses particularly on contending geographies: how “Palestinians have been ‘abolished from the map,’ in the words of Palestinian cartographer Salman Abu-Sitta,” and the prospect of “counter-cartographies that subvert colonialism’s map-making….“In the face of Zionist rejection of Palestinian refugee return, international indifference, and an ineffectual and compromising Palestinian leadership for whom the refugee question is a source of irritation, Palestinian refugees pin their hopes on memory, Weaver writes. – Joe Catron, ei)

What caused these changes? The attempt here is to describe historical moments, a periodization, from the founding of the state until today, in order to describe the relation to the term in each period and the changes it went through. This text deals with the attitude towards the Nakba in Hebrew almost exclusively and does not attempt to describe the attitudes and changes it went through in Arabic and in the Arab world.”]

[Excerpt: "After the War of Independence in 1948, the state imposed military rule over Arabs living around the country, which applied to an estimated 85 percent of that community at the time, say researchers at the NGO. The Arabs in question were subject to the authority of a military commander who could limit their freedom of movement, declare areas to be closed zones, or demand that the inhabitants leave and enter certain locales only with his written permission. The newly revealed documents describe the ways Israel prevented Arabs from returning to villages they had left in 1948, even after the restrictions on them had been lifted. The main method: dense planting of trees within and surrounding these towns.”]

Justice Menachem Mazuz queried, “Who said that’s the purpose of the Law of Return?” Many replied, “With all due respect to the Law of Return, it’s a shorthand for something else, … to ensure something that was more important to the state’s founders – the existence of a Jewish majority in the Land of Israel.” But the bottom line, (Justice Menachem) Mazuz pressed him, is that “anyone who objects to the Law of Return can’t be represented in the Knesset? This means that Arabs have no place in the Knesset? Please say yes or no, and if no, how does that fit?” But (attorney) Many insisted, “This is the state and that’s how it is.”Mazuz understood. “Is the fact that someone has an opinion about the Law of Return sufficient to disqualify him?” he asked. And Many finally broke down and admitted, “That’s sufficient.” “Am I supposed to be embarrassed by what I said just now?” Many asked at the end of the hearing. In a word, yes.”]

Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem “have no choice” but to build without
permits because the Israeli municipality rarely grants the right to build
or extend homes. The authorities estimate that between 15,000 and
20,000 Arab homes have been built or extended without planning
permission in the past five years. / “Thousands of Palestinians in
the city are living under constant threat to their homes and
businesses; in many cases, the authorities follow through on this
threat or force residents to demolish the structures themselves,”
said B’Tselem. “Israel does not see the residents of East Jerusalem
[the Palestinians] as human beings with equal rights, but as people
it strives to remove from their homes, as they are an obstacle to
Judaising the city.” / The measures adopted by Israel to achieve
that end, added the respected human rights group, are all illegal.
“[The authorities are] deliberately denying Palestinians construction
permits for residential and other purposes, issuing demolition
orders for structures built without a permit for lack of choice,
and demolishing dozens of such structures a year.” Israel,
concluded B’Tselem, has implemented this policy, designed
to clear parts of the city of Palestinians, since occupying the
West Bank and annexing East Jerusalem and the surrounding
villages [in 1967].”]

Palestine 1947: Jewish Land Ownership

• Quotations

Moshe Sharett, Israel's second Prime Minister (1953-1955):

"We have forgotten that we have not come to an empty land to inherit it, but we have come to conquer a country from people inhabiting it" (from Righteous Victims, p. 91) 

On partition: "The [Palestinian] Arab reaction would be negative because they would lose everything and gain almost nothing ...They would lose the richest part of Palestine; they would lose major Arab assets, the orange plantations, the commercial and industrial centers and the most important sources of revenue for their government which would become impoverished; they would lose most of the coastal area, which would also be a loss to the hinterland Arab states...It would mean that they would be driven back to the desert." (from Expulsion of the Palestinians, p. 59)

"With regard to the refugees, we are determined to be adamant while the  war lasts. Once the return tide starts, it will be impossible to stem it, and it will prove our undoing. As for the future, we are equally determined to explore all possibilities of getting rid, once and for all, of the huge [Palestinian] Arab minority [referring to the Palestinian Israeli citizens of Israel] which originally threatened us. What can be achieved in this period of storm and stress [referring to the 1948 war] will be quite unattainable once conditions get stabilized. (from The Birth of Israel: Myths and Realities, p. 105) 

Yosef Weitz, director, Jewish National Fund Land Settlement Committee (1932-1948):

"...the transfer of [Palestinian] Arab population from the area of the Jewish state does not serve only one aim--to diminish the Arab population. It also serves a second, no less important, aim which is to advocate land presently held and cultivated by the [Palestinian] Arabs and thus to release it for Jewish inhabitants." (from Expulsion Of The Palestinians, p. 94-95)

"It must be clear that there is no room in the country for both peoples...If the Arabs leave it, the country will become wide and spacious for us...The only solution is a Land of Israel...without Arabs...There is no way but to transfer the Arabs from here to the neighboring countries, to transfer all of them, save perhaps for [the Palestinian Arabs of] Bethlehem, Nazareth, and the old Jerusalem. Not one village must be left, not one tribe." (from Benny Morris, The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem, p. 27)

"Once again I come face to face with the land settlement difficulties that emanate from the existence of two people in close proximity...only population transfer and evacuating this country so it would become exclusively for us is the solution. " (from Expulsion Of The Palestinians, p. 132)

Moshe Dayan, chief of staff, Israel Defense Forces and Minister of Defense during the 1967 war:

"Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages. You do not even know the names of these Arab villages, and I do not blame you because geography books no longer exist, not only do the books not exist, the Arab villages are not there either...There is not one single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab Population." (from Ha'aretz, April 4, 1969)

"We shoot at those from among the 200,000 hungry Arabs who cross the  line [to graze their flocks]...Arabs cross to collect the grain that they left in the abandoned villages and we set mines for them and they go back without an arm or a leg...[It may be that this] cannot pass review, but I know no other method of guarding the borders." (from Righteous Victims, p. 275)

At the funeral of an Israeli farmer killed by a Palestinian in April 1956: "Let us not today fling accusation at the murderers. What cause have we to complain about their fierce hatred to us? For eight years now, they sit in their refugee camps in Gaza, and before their eyes we turn into our homestead the land and villages in which they and their forefathers have lived...We should demand his blood not from the Arabs of Gaza but from ourselves...Let us make our reckoning today. We are a generation of settlers, and without the steel helmet and gun barrel, we shall not be able to plant a tree or build a house." (from Avi Shlaim, The Iron Wall,
p. 101)

Yigal Allon, commander, Palmach (elite force of Zionist militia Haganah) (1945-1948), Lieutenant General, Israeli army (1948-1949):

"The confidence of thousands of Arabs of the Hula [Valley] was shaken...We had only five days left...until 15 May [1948]. We regarded it as imperative to cleanse the interior of the Galilee and create Jewish territorial continuity in the whole of the Upper Galilee...I gathered the Jewish mukhtars [Kibbutz chiefs], who had ties with the different Arab villages, and I asked them to whisper in the ears of several Arabs that a giant Jewish reinforcement had reached the Galilee and were about to clean out the villages of Hula, [and] to advise them as friends, to flee while they could. And rumour spread throughout Hula that the time had come to flee. The flight encompassed tens of thousands. The stratagem fully achieved its objective." (from The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem, p. 122)

Yitzhak Rabin, Prime Minister of Israel (1974-1977, 1992-1995)

"We walked outside, Ben-Gurion accompanying us. Allon repeated his question, What is to be done with the Palestinian population?' Ben-Gurion waved his hand in a gesture which said 'Drive them out!" (from New York Times, October 23, 1979)

Ariel Sharon, Prime Minister of Israel (2001-2006)

"It is the duty of Israeli leaders to explain to public opinion, clearly and courageously, a certain number of facts that are forgotten with time. The first of these is that there is no Zionism, colonialization, or Jewish State without the eviction of the Arabs and the expropriation of their lands." (from Agence France Presse, November 15, 1998)

David Ben-Gurion, Israel's first Prime Minister (1948-1953):

"We must expel Arabs and take their places...and, if we have to use force-not to dispossess the Arabs of the Negev and Transjordan, but to guarantee our own right to settle in those places-then we have force at our disposal." (from Nur Masalha, Expulsion of the Palestinians, p. 66)

"The compulsory transfer of the [Palestinian] Arabs from the valleys of the proposed Jewish state could give us something which we never had, even when we stood on our own during the days of the first and second Temples. We are given an opportunity which we never dared to dream of  in our wildest imaginings. This is more than a state, government and sovereignty, this is national consolidation in a free homeland." (from Benny Morris, Righteous Victims, p. 142)

"In many parts of the country new settlement will not be possible without transferring the [Palestinian] Arab is important that this plan comes from the [British Peel] Commission and not from us….Jewish power, which grows steadily, will also increase our possibilities to carry out the transfer on a large scale." (from Righteous Victims, p. 143)

"With compulsory transfer we [would] have a vast area [for settlement….I support compulsory transfer. I don't see anything immoral in it." (from Righteous Victims, p. 144)

"Just as I do not see the proposed Jewish state as a final solution to the problems of the Jewish people, so I do not see partition as the final solution of the Palestine question. Those who reject partition are right in their claim that this country cannot be partitioned because it constitutes one unit, not only from a historical point of view but also from that of nature and economy" (from Simha Flapan, The Birth of Israel: Myths and Realities, p. 22)

"After the formation of a large army in the wake of the establishment of the [Jewish] state, we shall abolish partition and expand to the whole of the Palestine" (from The Birth of Israel: Myths and Realities, p. 22)

Chaim Weizmann, Israel's first President:

"[The indigenous population was akin to] the rocks of Judea, as obstacles that had to be cleared on a difficult path." (from Expulsion of the Palestinians, p. 17)

looks like. It is from May 19, 1948 and it is the order to occupy
three villages in the north of Palestine.” / "In the villages lying

OCHA map of demolitions in the West Bank []


From Zochrot, an Israeli NGO "working since 2002 to
promote acknowledgement and accountability for the
ongoing injustices of the Nakba, the Palestinian
catastrophe of 1948 and the reconceptualization of
the Return as the imperative redress of the Nakba
and a chance for a better life for all the country’s

"Stop the forced uprooting of Bedouin communities from the
West Bank.” Editorial in the Israeli daily Haaretz, September
24, 2017. ["But the problem is not “construction offenders.”
The problem is Israeli policy, which prevents construction
and hookups to infrastructure to the point where dozens of
communities have deteriorated to the harshest of conditions.
The problem is Israel’s intention to uproot them, in order to
expand settlements and prevent the establishment of a
Palestinian state. This political project – the forced uprooting
of Bedouin communities, replacing them with new Jewish
settlements – is against international law. It has reached
the doorstep of the High Court justices, who are under
constant pressure to “respect the will of the people” – that
is, the will of the settlers who control the government – even
though this will is neither legal nor moral. It must be hoped
the justices will be able to stand in the breach.”]

Zochrot re hiding War Crimes

“The World Zionist Organization Land Theft Divison” — Editorial in
the Israeli daily Haaretz, November 15, 2017. ["The World Zionist
Organization Settlement Division steals both state and private
Palestinian lands to realize its sacred goal of settlement
construction. It illegally takes lands that don’t belong to it as
enforcement agencies look on helplessly. Any other person,
company or organization that would methodically behave in this
fashion would certainly be prosecuted. But no one has even
investigated the Settlement Division. In Israel it’s permitted to
steal with the law’s protection, so long as it advances the ultimate
goal that overshadows all other values; development of the
settlements. The Settlement Division is acting like a publicly
funded crime organization. It’s time to start treating it accordingly,
by investigating it and dismantling it.”]

policy of systematic forced displacement with wave of
home demolitions in Sur Baher…. “These demolitions
are a flagrant violation of international law and part
of a systematic pattern by the Israeli authorities’ to

During 2018, a group of Israelis took part
in a learning workshop about the return of
Palestinian refugees. This workshop is part
of Zochrot’s activity to promote the discourse
on the realization of return and the
understanding of its spatial implications.
The workshop focused on the Beit Shemesh
area, and included tours among the ruins of
the Palestinian villages of Dayr Aban
(H. Mahseya), Zakariyya (Zekharia), Bayt
Nattif (Netiv HaLamed-Heh), and Bayt
Jibrin (Beit Guvrin), where Palestinians
used to live until uprooted by the newly
established State of Israel in 1948. Many
of the Palestinians still live in refugee camps
in the Bethlehem area. During the tours, the
participants were interviewed, knowing
that their statements will be presented
publicly. This included refugees who
used to live in the villages and their
family members."

Fourth Geneva Convention.[1] It is a grave breach of Additional

Many military manuals prohibit the deportation or transfer
by a party to the conflict of parts of its civilian population
into the territory it occupies.[4] This rule is included in the

Attempts to alter the demographic composition of an
occupied territory have been condemned by the UN
Security Council.[7] In 1992, it called for the cessation
of attempts to change the ethnic composition of the
population, anywhere in the former Yugoslavia.[8]
Similarly, the UN General Assembly and UN Commission
on Human Rights have condemned settlement
practices.[9] According to the final report of the UN
Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights Dimensions
of Population Transfer, including the Implantation of
Settlers and Settlements, “the implantation of settlers”
is unlawful and engages State responsibility and the
criminal responsibility of individuals.[10]

In 1981, the 24th International Conference of the Red
Cross reaffirmed that “settlements in occupied territory
are incompatible with article 27 and 49 of the Fourth
eneva Convention”.[11]

In the Case of the Major War Criminals in 1946, the
International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg found
two of the accused guilty of attempting the
“Germanization” of occupied territories.[12]"
