"Unwillingness to live under Jewish control"[edit]

Having consulted the cited reference, it appears to be an opinion by an Egyptian Foreign Minister on the question of refugee return. I don't see that as a cause. Besides, it does not appear to be cited in mainstream sources discussing the exodus. Al-Andalusi (talk) 00:00, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

I added another source. I hope this solves the problem. No More Mr Nice Guy (talk) 17:08, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

If what is written on the Battle of Haifa (1948) Wikipedia page is correct, then the primary cause of the evacuation of Haifa was a clever use of counter-propaganda by the Haganah.

Throughout the Haganah made effective use of Arabic language broadcasts and loudspeaker vans. Haganah Radio announced that 'the day of judgement had arrived' and called on inhabitants to 'kick out the foreign criminals' and to 'move away from every house and street, from every neighbourhood occupied by foreign criminals'. The Haganah broadcasts called on the populace to 'evacuate the women, the children and the old immediately, and send them to a safe haven'

So I think a better source is still warranted here. ImTheIP (talk) 00:30, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

Extended-confirmed-protected edit request on 3 May 2017[edit]

Oncenawhile made an (unsourced) edit in lead about "250,000-300,000 displaced Palestinians" which contradicts the article's body where it says nearly 175,000 Palestinians fled before Israel was proclaimed (meaning during the 1947-48 civil war). Maybe it should be reverted or replaced by an accurate statistic.--190.138.72.223 (talk) 02:28, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

The 175,000 is as at 1 May 1948. Independence was two weeks later. The article says: "According to Morris's estimates, 250,000 to 300,000 Palestinians left Israel during this stage.[7]:262 "Keesing's Contemporary Archives" in London place the total number of refugees before Israel's independence at 300,000.[53]".

Not done: Procedural close, as there's not really a request to action right now. 190.138.72.223, you are welcome to continue the conversation or reactivate the request as needed. Murph9000 (talk) 01:05, 5 May 2017 (UTC)
