There is not one single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab Population

Moshe Dayan's Confession
Moshe Dayan in an Address to the Technion, Haifa
(as quoted in Ha'aretz, April 4, 1969)

"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 exists, 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 that
did not have a former Arab Population."

Walid Khalidi, Palestinian author, All That Remains
 

"By the end of the 1948 war, hundreds of entire villages had not only been
depopulated but obliterated, their houses blown up or bulldozed. While many
of the sites are difficult to access, to this day the observant traveller of
Israeli roads and highways can see traces of their presence that would
escape the notice of the casual passer-by: a fenced-in area, often
surmounting a gentle hill, of olive and other fruit trees left untended, of
cactus hedges and domesticated plants run wild. Now and then a few crumbled
houses are left standing, a neglected mosque or church, collapsing walls
along the ghost of a village lane, but in the vast majority of cases, all
that remains is a scattering of stones and rubble across a forgotten
landscape."
