Refugee: Arab states told us to leave for "2 weeks"
Palestinian man:
"This picture of me was taken a week before we left Ein-Kerem [near Jerusalem], in June 1948, in front of our house. The radio stations of the Arab regimes kept repeating to us: 'Get away from the frontline. It's a matter of ten days or at most two weeks, and we'll bring you back to Ein-Kerem.' And we said to ourselves, 'That's a very long time. Two weeks is too much.' That's what we thought [then]. And now 50 years have gone by."

Thus recounts an Arab resident of a refugee camp the reason why his family left Israel in 1948 in an interview broadcast on PA TV this month.
