The Assembly of Palestine Jewry issued this appeal on October 2, We will do everything in our power to maintain peace, and establish a cooperation gainful to both [Jews and Arabs].
It is now, here and now, from Jerusalem itself, that a call must go out to the Arab nations to join forces with Jewry and the destined Jewish State and work shoulder to shoulder for our common good, for the peace and progress of sovereign equals.
In the midst of wanton aggression, we yet call upon the Arab inhabitants of the State of Israel to preserve the ways of peace and play their part in the development of the State, on the basis of full and equal citizenship and due representation in all its bodies and institutions We extend our hand in peace and neighborliness to all the neighboring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all.

Thousands rushed every available craft, even rowboats, along the waterfront, to escape by sea toward Acre. Despite these efforts, all but about 5, or 6, Arabs evacuated Haifa, many leaving with the assistance of British military transports.

The Arabs were told to leave while they still had time and, according to Allon, they did exactly that. Surprisingly, rather than acting as a strategically valuable "fifth-column" that would fight the Jews from within the country, the Palestinians chose to flee to the safety of the other Arab states, still confident of being able to return.
