Abstract

"Transfer" - a euphemism denoting the organized removal of the Arab population of Palestine to neighbouring or distant countries - is deeply rooted in Zionism. Palestine, in Zionist thought, is "a land without a people for a people without a land" - a vacant territory waiting for settlers, with Palestinian residents who are not attached to the land by historical or cultural ties.
