The transformation of Palestine into a Jewish state was a deliberate, drawn-out and violent process. Palestinians were dispossessed of vast swaths of land. Over 80 percent of Palestinians, in what became Israel in 1948, were made into refugees overnight. This process culminated in 1948 but began in the early 20th century. It continues today.


To create the state of Israel, Zionist forces attacked major Palestinian cities and destroyed more than 530 Palestinian villages. In 1948, approximately 13,000 Palestinians were killed and more than 750,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homes, becoming refugees. This was the climax of Zionist ethnic cleansing. Today, Palestinian refugees and their descendants number more than seven million. Many still languish in refugee camps in neighbouring Arab countries, waiting to return to their homeland.
