A Palestinian refugee on official Palestinian Authority television openly ‎contradicts the Palestinian narrative on refugees, which usually places full ‎blame on Israel for Palestinian refugees. In this clip, Sadek Musid states that ‎Arab leaders encouraged Palestinians to leave their homes, promising them ‎that they would return within a week or two. ‎

Transcript:‎
Arab refugee Sadek Mufid: ”We headed first from Dir al-Qasi [northern Israel] ‎to Rmaich [Lebanon], considering what they (Arab leaders) said at the time: ‎‎“By Allah, in a week or two, you will return to Palestine.” The Arab armies ‎entered Palestine, along with the Arab Liberation Army. We left – we and ‎those who fled with us – and we all headed for Lebanon. Some people came ‎to Rmaich and others came to the villages on the border, such as Ein Ibl and ‎also to Bint Jbeil. People scattered. And we have about 11 or 15 [refugee] ‎camps in Lebanon.”‎
‎[Official Palestinian Authority TV, Feb. 9, 2010]‎
