How the Palestinians were displaced in 1948 | The Village Under the Forest

What happened in '48? It's the question that haunts the Israel/Palestine dynamic and defines so much of the conflict. This doc strips back the layers of myth, from denial to stories of mass genocide, telling the real story through the hidden remains of the destroyed Palestinian village of Lubya. Lying under a purposefully cultivated forest plantation, it holds many of the answers not only to the country's past but also its future.

The video is an eye-opener. Apparently, this process was systematically repeated by the Jewish National Fund (JNF) in several other villages. A nonprofit established in 1901 that owns 13% of land in Israel. In 2015 their revenue was $2.5B. They have planted 240 million trees on Palestinian lands!
