    Steve, you are the ducker, since you obviously have not read "The Iron Wall," else you would not say that I am quoting "out of context." But if you want answers, then I state that since Jabotinsky uses the word "nation" to refer to the Palestinians, there must have been some reason for that. Also, there was a newspaper called "Filasteen" put out in 1908, before the liberation from the Ottomans. There were Palestinian pounds and Palestinian stamps. My sister's godmother went to Palestine in 1949. We have photographs dated "Palestine, 1950." Before 1948, there was no state called "Israel." Birth certificates and passports of persons born before 1948 say "Palestine" on them. As for the partition of 1947, be realistic. The Arabs were offered 45% although they were 77% of the population. And the absence of revolt against Jordan was because the exiles were still hoping to get their homeland back from the Jews. Please comment on Jabotinsky's view of the situation in 1923.
