Roi Tov: IDF General Admits One Million Palestinians Expelled!
War is an area of uncertainty, three quarters of the things on which all action in War is based, are lying in a fog of uncertainty, Carl von Clausewitz. Why should one waste time reading an article celebrating the 100 birthday of a brigadier general? If he had been a full general that could be understood, but a mere tat-aluf in the IDF? Yet, faithful readers continuously praise my unusual choice of topics. That means harsh, painful sacrifices like reading the above mentioned celebration. A few pearls hid within the words of Yitzhak Pundak, who on June 13, 2013 celebrated his birthday. Allow me the little joy of beginning from his last words in the interview: I am proud up to the roof. I love my country. These words are a joy, because in the process of describing his unlikely source of pride, he nuked his beloved country twice. Yitzak Pundak. The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee. 1948 Arab Israeli War. During the 1948 Arab Israeli War, unclear targets were hit by unknown forces, but maybe not, is the only authoritative summary of that war.

It was either southern Syria before the First World War, and then it was a Palestine including Jordan. It was not as though there was a Palestinian people in Palestine considering itself as a Palestinian people in Palestine considering itself as a Palestinian people, and we came and threw them out and took their country away from them. They did not exist. I dislike spoiling the irrational feasts of violent leaders, but just let me point a tiny, secondary, yet relevant fact: also the State of Israel never existed. The State of Israel is not the Kingdom of Israel. Sorry Golda, you need additional lessons from Goebbels.
