It is amazing that in this day and age there is a Jew that doesnt know that when Israel declared statehood under UN resolution 181 in 1948, there was no Palestinian governing entity. Jordan controlled the West Bank and Egypt controlled Gaza.The Palestinians did not attack Israel in 1948, Syria, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt attacked Israel. The Palestinians didnt have an army. Did you really not know this, or are you trying out for a position as an Israeli propagandist? You aren't going to make it.
