Additionally as to his claim that "the Zionists had gone in and exterminated everyone in the village in 1948." Then pray tell how did he come to be if as he claims "everyone was exterminated!!???" Additionally there are no stories of any alleged "massacres" or atrocities in the British mandatory or post War of Independence UN accounts of these villages?
Below is a list of the Towns and villages according to the Mandatory Palestine Government Nazareth Subdistrict and their story.

The Village population made fearful from stories of atrocities and massacres on Arab League radio broadcast during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War and their the incessant calls to make way for the victorious armies fled in mass.
The Claim of Ethnic Cleansing
This is reflected in the Israeli Declaration of Independence were it states clearly;
“We appeal - in the very midst of the onslaught launched against us now for months - to the Arab inhabitants of the State of Israel to preserve peace and participate in the up building of the State on the basis of full and equal citizenship and due representation in all its provisional and permanent institutions.”
"If the Jews left
Palestineto us, would we start loving them? Of course not! The Jews are infidels not because I say so but because Allah does... They aren't our enemies because they occupy Palestine; they would be our enemies even if they had not occupied anything."
In the circumstances, had the Jews not driven them out, Israel would not have arisen and its (Jewish) population would have been slaughtered – or, at the least, the Jewish state would have been established with a considerable Fifth Column in its midst and rendered mortally unstable.
(Conversely, had the Arabs accepted the 1947 UN Partition Resolution, refrained from violence, and gone on with their lives as loyal Israeli citizens, nothing would have happened to them.)
