"Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages. You do not even know the names of these Arab villages, and I do not blame you because geography books no longer exist, not only do the books not exist, the Arab villages are not there either. Nahlal arose in the place of Mahlul; Kibbutz Gvat in the place of Jibta; Kibbutz Sarid in the place of Huneifis; and Kefar Yehushu'a in the place of Tal al-Shuman. There is not one single place built in this country [Israel] that did not have a former Arab population."

Moshe Dayan, Israeli military head and defense minister in the 1967 war

"The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies."
