In today's article about violence at a Palestinian refugee camp in Jordan there is this statement:

Baqaa camp is the largest camp in Jordan, where a large percentage of the country's over seven million population are descendents of Palestinian refugees who fled in the aftermath of the creation of Israel in 1948.

The truth is that the Palestinians did not flee as much as they were driven out and ethnic cleansed; and it was not in the "aftermath" but was in the actual events leading up to the creation of Israel.
