Ethnic cleansing?

A rather significant nugget of information from Ha'aretz (hat tip: Melanie Phillips):-

'Some 50,000 Arabs immigrated to Israel in the past five years, a student at the University of Derby in Israel found…The number 50,000 was taken from conversations with local leaders, from unrecorded data in absorbtion areas, from the Islamic movement's private education system and from human rights organizations, the researcher said. According to Nasrin, much of the immigration is an effort to achieve unity between extended family members, some of which may have lived in the territories while others were considered Arab Israelis in Israel proper.'

As Melanie comments, this is a strange sort of ethnic cleansing.
