    lakshmi, on my recent trip to Israel I bought a print (actually 4 laminated placemats for my kitchen table) of a c.1923 oil painting of Tel Aviv, by Reuben Reuven. I also have a lithograph of one of his olive orchards works, as I can't afford a $250,000 oil painting of his. But back to Tel Aviv, in 1923, the area of homes and buildings in the painting are scantly built-up, and I heard later agriculture was scarce, diseases such as malaria, etc - there was hardly an establishment there in Tel Aviv despite the number of Arabs and Jews, and when immigration increased as a result of anti-semitism and Jews were displaced, then the equation changed. There were wrong things happening, no denying, but on the whole Jews and Arabs coexisted and cohabited, and the Jewish presence in the Middle East is from time immemorial and you can't really change that lakshmi.
