Response to Shaktimaan (Reply #15)

16. The OP stated that in 1948 600,000 Arab Jews were expelled from their respective countries

oh and no one ever says anything about it, that last part I covered in small part above but on that 600,000 in 1948 perhaps she's confusing Jews from Arab countries with Palestinian Arabs because

From 1948 until the early 1970s, 800,0001,000,000 Jews left, fled, or were expelled from their homes in Arab countries; 260,000 of them reached Israel between 1948 and 1951; and 600,000 by 1972. Lebanon was the only Arab country to see an increase in its Jewish population after 1948, which was due to an influx of refugees from other Arab countries. However, by the 1970s the Jewish community of Lebanon too dwindled due to hostilities of the Lebanese Civil War. By 2002 Jews from Arab countries and their descendants constituted almost half of Israel's population.

and when they arrived in Israel they found that around 700,000 Palestinian Arabs had 'graciously' vacated their homes just for them
