CBC's mis-use of language

All Israel news all the time. There are almost 200 countries in the world, but CBC covers Israel as if it were a Canadian province - although it usually ignores Israel's daily crimes against Palestinians and highlights Israel's victimhood.

In an article today there is this sentence:

"Many of Jordan's seven million citizens are of Palestinian origin. They or their parents or grandparents were expelled or fled to Jordan in the fighting that accompanied the creation of Israel in 1948."

The reason that there are so many Palestinian refugees in Jordan is because of ETHNIC CLEANSING carried out by Israel. You "EXPEL" a naughty child from a school. The Palestinians were not "expelled" - they were driven out of their homes, having committed no crime warranting this foul treatment.

And the reference to "the fighting that accompanied the creation of Israel" - that was pretty one-sided fighting, and it was all really a cover to allow the ethnic cleansing to happen.

And perhaps it might be worthwhile to note in this context that Israel refuses to allow these people to return to their former homes. After all what is the point of an ethnic cleansing if you let people return?
