Flytilla intended to visit 1948 villages

It is claimed that the truth has been reported abroad, but here in Israel, the media told us that 'all' the flytilla passengers wanted was to visit 'Palestinians' in Judea and Samaria. In an interview with Arutz Sheva, David Bedein reported that's a lie. The true aim was to visit the locations of Arab villages from the pre-1948 period. But telling Israelis that would contradict the party line here that 'all' the Arabs want is Judea, Samaria and Gaza.
The entire Fly-In was organized by an organization named Al Awda – The Return – and activists were equipped with accurate maps of locations within Israel that had become Jewish communities after 1948. These sites are not in Judea and Samaria, which were only liberated in 1967.

According to Bedein, the activists located descendants of Arabs who fled from these locations in 1948. The descendants live in the United States, Canada and Europe. They traveled with them to countries from which Israel does not require a visa and set out to Israel with the intent of holding demonstrations in Yafo, Lod, Tzfat and other locations.

The Israeli press has not made this information known to Israelis, he said, because it is intent upon deceiving Israelis into thinking the “Palestinians” just want Judea and Samaria.

Bedein also quotes Arab affairs expert Pinchas Inbari who estimated that come September, the PA intends to ask the United Nations for a state along 1947 UN Partition Plan boundaries. This may awaken some Israelis to the true aims of the PA, he said.

Bedein's interpretation contradicts information relayed by the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, which said the activists were looking to stir up trouble in Judea and Samaria.
What could go wrong?
