By Ben-Dror Yemini

 

It isn’t very often that we get an opportunity to see the “Palestinian problem” from a different angle. There is a problem. It’s even a very serious problem. But it has nothing to do with Israel.

Yes, the Nakba happened. [Some] People were expelled. Around 700,000 Arab residents of Palestine became refugees. They weren’t alone. Tens of millions of people became refugees during the same years. Continue Reading »

According to reports, the Wing of Zion wasn’t cheap, costing some NIS 750 million ($242m.) Continue Reading »
