You know how "population transfer" is considered a major war crime nowadays? And how so many try to prove (and fail) that Zionist Jews planned to transfer Arabs from Palestine?

Here's a little piece of history that has been erased:

Would Exchange 100,000 Jews for Palestine Refugees 
BEIRUT, Lebanon, Oct. 15 — Nuri as-Said, Iraqi Premier, proposed to the United Nations Economic Mission to the Middle East during its brief visit to Baghdad yesterday that 100,000 Iraqi Jews out of some 160,000 to 180,000 be sent to Israel in exchange for 100,000 Palestine refugees, the mission spokesman revealed. 

He indicated the refugees should be capable of performing the work of the Jews they would replace in Iraq society. The Jews would leave their property in Israel and take over the property in Israel of 100,000 Arabs. 
Before 1949, mass transfer of populations were considered reasonable solutions to intractable problems between ethnic groups. Only with the Fourth Geneva Convention did involuntary transfers become a war crime. 

This proposal was made after the Fourth Geneva Convention became international law. But no one had a problem when Iraq suggested this to the UN.

And it wasn't only Iraq. 

Egypt also suggested such a population transfer to the UN Conciliation Commission for Palestine.
 Egypt’s position on the refugee question was the one described in I.B.2 (b): They also did not seem to favour the absorption of the refugees by Transjordan and seemed to object to any attempt by Transjordan to assume the championship of Arab Palestinians. ... They mentioned the possibility of an exchange of Jews and Arabs.

In the end, there was such an exchange, albeit unofficial. A million Jews fled Arab countries where persecution became unbearable, and some 600,000 Palestinian Arabs ended up settling in Arab countries. But unlike the Jews who immediately became full citizens of Israel, the descendants of the Palestinian Arabs continue to remain stateless.

The only exception was Jordan, and as we see in the UN document referenced above, the other Arab nations opposed Jordan's naturalizing Palestinians as citizens. So much for being champions of the Palestinian Arabs!

Iraq did end up accommodating over 30,000 Palestinians who came in waves after 1948 and 1967.  By most reports the Palestinians were treated well with the exception of not allowing them to become citizens, before the fall of Saddam Hussein. 

Now the Palestinians are despised throughout Iraq, and most fled. 

By any metric, the Arab world has treated Palestinians worse than Israel treated the Jewish refugees. Not only that, they have treated Palestinians worse that Israel has treated Palestinians. 

And that's another piece of history that has been erased.
