Occupation 101

Israeli historian Ilan Pappe describes the period around the declaration of Israel’s independence as one during which the indigenous…Palestinian population was ethnically cleansed from the land when they were forced from their homes or fled in terror after hearing news of rapes and massacres at other villages.
