    The Arabs were violently opposed to having a Jewish state established on their territory. This is well-documented. Despite the riots and killing of Palestinian Jews, the Zionists continued their inexorable determination to create a nation. Which is fine, but not when there are already inhabitants who do not want to be colonized. That is exactly what happened. Thanks to Irgun, Hagganah, et al. and capers like the killing of British soldiers and the bombing of the King David hotel in 1946, the British fled the scene and the Arabs were royally screwed. And they are still angry. They will keep on struggling, they will never go away, there are over 4 million angry Arabs and they are getting more and more vociferous, more and more thinking persons are reading all the texts, including documents (see Charles D. Smith, "Palestine and the Arab-Israeli conflict"). You see, not everyone is a believer in the Jewish scriptures. Why should they be? There are other religions and none should be placed above the rest when it comes to land claims. Even the United States government recognizes the right to a just settlement for the Palestinians. When there is finally an objective and honest broker with the clout and power necessary, only then will there be a rational solution free of religious bias, myths and word games like "returning" to a place where one has never been.
