Palestine and the Palestinians
. Boulder:HarperCollins, 1997. 135. Print.This primary source provides valuable data as to why different Arab families fled, givinginsight into the dangers that they faced. Though this shows only numbers, the clearlylabeled reasoning of the Palestinian families is saddening. The specific numbers shown inthe survey, such as the fact that 22% of the families surveyed left because of directthreats shows the chaos and violence present at this time and the fear the refugees wereexperiencing at the time of flight. I believe that we will be able to use these statistics toshow what a traumatizing time this was for the Palestinian people. We can use this toargue that the creation of the state of Israel was extremely difficult and trying for the people already living there.Horowitz, David.
Jewish Colonization and Arab Development in Palestine
. Rep. no. 76. JewishAgency 1945. Print.This document was written just two years before Israel was created. Consequently, itcontains the arguments and ideas present at the time, the conflicting propositions anddiffering beliefs. It presents the Israeli side of the argument, which is actually helpful, because it may help us come up with points to argue against. For instance, Horowitzsupports mass Jewish immigration to Palestine in the report, saying that their talents andentrepreneurship helped transform the country only for the better. Horowitz¶s carefulresearch has provided accurate figures of immigration and land sales, all of which areclear and easy to understand.
