Description

The Palestinian diaspora in 1948 was the result of many social and political factors, including the impact of Jewish immigration, conflicts between the Arab world and the new Jewish state, and the Zionist desire for a Jewish homeland. The diaspora did not stem from anyone single incident or motivation, instead it was the result of numerous events and growing tensions. It was the end product of social upheaval and pro Israeli political policies during the formation of the state of Israel. In this paper, the diaspora is explained in terms of its social and political causes.
