BookReview: The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem Revisited
by Benny Morris, Cambridge University Press;, 1/5/2004, 978-0521009676

This classic text was revised without a thematic change. Other books have come out which shed light on Plan Dalet, which is arguably the cause of the Palestinian Refugee problem. It's a thick book, but it fails to convince. The conclusion is a fiat, not proven thesis:

[p588] The first Arab-Israeli war, of 1948, was launched by the Palestinian Arabs, who rejected the UN partition resolution and embarked on hostilities aimed at the preventing the birth of Israel. That war and not design, Jewish or Arab, gave birth to the Palestinian refugee problem.
