    .. know that Uganda wasn't an option for a Jewish State, nor is Europe like Dr. of Death Ahmadinejad is proposing. To state that Jews chose to return to Israel is akin to saying that Muslims choose to go to Mecca for the Haj. If I were a Palestinian Arab living amongst Palestinian Jews during the British Mandate I would have welcomed with open arms the arrival of a people from the haunting of the Holocaust, especially when they showed such industriousness and a gushing romance for the land.
