(last week, at 0:27:02) “Of course, this is a deeply controversial topic, with highly charged views on both sides. So, for obvious reasons, we’re going to hear from both sides. Next week: the Israeli view. But right now, Louise Hidalgo hears from two Palestinians about their memories of that time.”

So it’s only right and proper that we hear now from the other side, and that other side doesn’t just mean those living in Israel, there was at the time a Jewish population scattered throughout the Middle East and beyond.
