Was Palestine Ethnically Cleansed in 1948? The Debate is Over.

Israeli historian Benny Morris now denies that Palestine was ethnically cleansed in 1948, but his own research shows this was exactly how Israel came to be.

In October, a debate raged in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz about whether Palestine was ethnically cleansed in 1948. The Israeli historian Benny Morris argued that there was no ethnic cleansing, while a number of his critics said there was.

Who got it right?

That’s the question I answer in my new essay, “Benny Morris’s Untenable Denial of the Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine“, published in Foreign Policy Journal.

I show that, while Morris now denies that the Zionists ethnically cleansed most of the Arab inhabitants from their homes in Palestine in order to establish their “Jewish state”, his own research shows that this was precisely how Israel came into being.

In short, I set out to end this debate once and for all. It’s time for the denialism to end and for the true nature of the conflict to become more widely known. It’s time to move the discussion forward to be able to finally realize peace and justice.
