Israeli historian Benny Morris has doubled down on his defense of the Nakba, the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians that took place in 1948.
In a new interview with Israeli paper Haaretz, Morris addressed previous comments he has made concerning the events of 1948.
In a 2004 interview in Haaretz, Morris justified the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. Invited to reassess those remarks in the latest interview, the historian doubled down.
While apparently regretting some of his language, Morris continued to back the population expulsions that took place.
