Above Video: ‘The Truth About the Refugees’- by D. Ayalon, was played before the UN.
Israeli Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Danny Ayalon, at a UNHRC event on 12/08/11, called for the United Nations to end the “morally unacceptable and unequal treatment of refugees”, whereby the Palestinian refugee problem is perpetuated without any resolution. He also raised the issue of Jewish refugees from Arab lands.
“While the UNHCR has found durable solutions for tens of millions of refugees, the agency created specifically for the Palestinian context, UNRWA, has found durable solutions for no one,” D. Ayalon
“It must not be forgotten that the Arab Higher Committee encouraged the refugees flight from their homes in Jaffa, Haifa, and Jerusalem.”-Near East Arabic Broadcasting Station, Cypress 1949
“the Secretary General of the Arab League, Azzam Pasha assured the Arab peoples… that the millions the Jews had spent on land and economic development would be easy booty, for it would be a simple matter to throw Jews into the Mediterranean…advice was given to the Arabs of Palestine to leave their land, homes, and property and to stay temporarily in neighboring fraternal states,”-Sec. General of the Arab League-(spokesman for the combined Arab States) Habib Issa, Al Hoda, NY Lebanese daily, June 1951.
