Myth-busting

New at Commentary: 1948, Israel, and the Palestinians - The True Story, by Efraim Karsh.

Karsh sets out to recount in detail the background and history of the exodus of Arab Palestinians from their homeland. It's a useful corrective for the common perception that they were "dispossessed" by the Jews in the years leading up to Israel's founding in 1948, and in the war that ensued. Do read it all.
