The ethnic cleansing of Palestine by Israel was not an unintended
consequence, or fortuitous occurrence, or even a "miracle", as Israel's first president Chaim Weitzmann later proclaimed. "It was the result of long and meticulous planning," wrote Illan Pappe, Professor of Political Science at Haifa University, in his recent book "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine" (2007).
