No doubt Jews has been living in Israel before 1948 but so have many other people too. Its not a reasonable argument to use when generations of palestinians have lived on the same land. If you look at the present situation, israel is creating the problem it want to protect itself from. With justice come peace. Where should palestinians go when their homes and land is being overtaken by someone else? You can't steal private land from someone by saying this land was yours 3000 years ago. What "madras" got to do with it? Its a simple question of justice and democratic values. take a daytrip to West Bank and see reality for yourself....
