The new historians (a term introduced by Benny Morris, one of them) came about to rethink if the national myths were true or if they were just as they had been told by the officialism. For example, studies by Morris showed that Arab-Palestinians were expelled from some places in 1948. In 1994, historian Benny Morris told a newspaper: “they lied to us, they hid the truth, they swept data under the rug (...). They knew that there had been massive deportations, massacres and violations, but they suppressed what they knew and divulged lies”. All nations have fundamental myths. The Palestinian foundational myth is by far more imaginative. A few years ago in times of Arafat, the Palestinian Embassy in Buenos Aires, published in its website the “history” of Palestine and the conflicts, with statements such as that the Palestinians are descendants of the Philistines and the Jebusites (coincidentally, the founders of Jerusalem) or that the Ashkenazi Jews descend totally from the Khazars and that they have no link to Palestine. They have also affirmed that Jesus was Palestinian, that there was never a Temple in Jerusalem, or that all was harmony in the Middle East until the arrival of Zionism... If the Israeli historiography of the first stage omitted the flight of the Palestinians, as if the Israelis were anxious to retain them, this new wave – sometimes – does the opposite. This way, it is not possible to group together Benny Morris with others like Ilan Pappe and Shlomo Sand. In this specific case, the mainstream Israeli historians deny the existence of a massive expulsion, as there is no documental evidence of a preconceived plan; there are no important testimonials or programs of the Mapai Party or speeches by Ben-Gurion on this issue.
