brief excerpt
7:07 AM
From the beginning of the Oslo accords to the end of 1997, 539 homes were demolished, 96 in the Jerusalem area.
The number of Jerusalem ID card confiscations increased by 600% in 1996. Today, 2 to 3 ID cards are confiscated daily.
In 1997 alone, 20,000 dunums of land were confiscated by the criminal government of israHELL . In 1967, Israel expanded the borders of Jerusalem, annexing to West Jerusalem approximately 71 km sq. of land occupied during the war, including dozens of Palestinian villages. In these annexed lands Israel built 12 Jewish neighborhoods, wherein reside today approximately 190,000 Israelis.

Joseph Weitz, former Jewish National Fund Director of Land and Forestry pointed out in 1937:
“the transfer of 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 evacuate land presently held and cultivated by the Arabs and thus to release it for the Jewish inhabitants”.

Israeli historian, Benny Morris, writes:
“Above all, let me reiterate, the refugee problem was caused by attacks by Jewish forces on Arab villages and towns and by the inhabitants’ fear of such attacks, compounded by expulstions, atrocities, and rumours of atrocities—and by the crucial Israeli Cabinet decision in June 1948 to bar a refugee return. The policy was to prevent a refugee at all costs…In this sense, it may fairly be said that all 700,000 or so who ended up as refugees were compulsorily displaced or expelled”.

As early as in September 1948, Count Folke Bernadotte, UN Palestine mediator, who was assassinated by the so-called Stern Gang, wrote:
“It would be an offence against the principles of elemental justice if these innocent victims of the conflict were denied the right to return to their homes while Jewish immigrants flow into Palestine and indeed, at least offer the threat of permanent replacement of the Arab refugees”.

Mohammed Bedjaoui, Minister of Justice, wrote in 1967:
“…every Jew in the world is regarded as having the right to settle in Palestine, which was deserted by his forefathers 2,000 years ago, while at the same time the Palestinian is not recognized as having a even the shadow of a right to return to the land which he was forced to quit a mere 20 years ago, or indeed a bare month ago, as a result of the present conflict. This is certainly a very peculiar line of reasoning”.
