    Thanks a lot for taking the time to respond. I really appreciate it. I want to clarify something that I believe is related to the refugee issue. As you say, the Arab goal in '47-'48 was to acquire the land and drive out the Jews. By engaging in this war, they accepted whatever the consequences would be should they lose. As it happened, Israel ended up expelling a certain amount of the Arab population from the territory they conquered in the War of Independence. Meaning: those who were hostile elements to the State, and others who were perhaps not. But how, in war, was Israel always supposed to ask each Arab if he or she was a hostile element? My point is that it seems reasonable for Israel to have behaved this way, given that their existence was threatened both from within and without. And given that the threat did come from within, and these people were expelled, why does the responsibilty for their plight rest on Israel?
