How Ethnic Cleansing works....

Some of you may have heard me refer to what happened to the Jews in the Arab World after 1948 as ethnic cleansing. In case anybody thinks I'm exaggerating,here's a graphic illustration of what I've been talking about:

These Jews were driven out of their homes after 1948 and mostly resettled in Israel,without a penny from the UN - unlike the 400,000 or so Arab refugees from Israel, most of whom left by choice and received massive aid from UNRWA.

Remember this the next time you hear someone talking a `apartheid Israel' or someone complaining about the `plight of the Palestinian refugees.'
