“We” were not alone in causing this crisis. Politicians of all stripes and colors in all countries create crisis by profession. That is what they do. This particular crisis is not new either, having been underway since at least 1948. The western NATO countries and Muslim countries caused this particular crisis as much as did the U.S. That subject by itself is a whole book. But Middle Eastern leaders, Russian and Chinese political leaders were the teachers, the instructors. They have been forcing mass migrations of their people since history began, and most of those were very deadly to the migrants.
Here are a few examples of the beginning of the current crisis:
1). Emil Guri, secretary of the Supreme Arab Council (interview with the London “Daily Telegraph” in Beirut on September 6, 1948): “I do not want to blame anyone, I just want to help the refugees. The situation in which they found themselves – the direct result of the actions of the Arab countries who opposed the division and the creation of the Jewish state. The Arab states unanimously agreed to this policy, and they are required to participate in solving the problem. ”
2). Newspaper “Nasser” May 7, 1948: “Victory is assured, but to achieve it can be much easier and with fewer losses if the local Arab population frees the way. It will be back after the victorious Arab armies not only to their homes and property, but still get home and property of the conquered and murdered Jews. ”
3). Arab radio station in the Middle East, which broadcasts from Cyprus (April 3, 1949): “We must remember that the Arab Higher Council supports the withdrawal of the Arabs living in Jaffa, Haifa and Jerusalem.”
4). The newspaper “Akhbar Ol-Pum” (Cairo, 1963): “There comes a May 15 … The Mufti of Jerusalem called on the Arabs of Palestine to leave their country because the Arab armies were ready to invade and expand in the country large-scale hostilities.”
5). Newspaper “Falastyn” Jordan (October 19, 1949.): “The Arab states supported the Arabs in their decision to temporarily leave home, so as not to interfere with the invasion of Arab armies.”
