    You say the Palestinians decided their own fate, implying they should simply give up on their rights and property, yielding to the Zionist machine. Instead, they have refused to act like puppets, demanding justicec.Bravo! As to 1948, unlike other wars in the 20th century, Israel did not let refugees return; instead it misappropriated their property and gave it to its own citizens. Political control is one thing, but private property ownership is another. German refugees did not lose their property after WWII. This justified the 1967 war on the Pal side. In 1994, Israel expected the Palestinians to gratefully accept that portion of what has been stolen from them that it was willing to cede as though it was being generous. Thieves offering to return part of what they stole is not generous. Many issues would have been unresolved. Israel expected Gazans to be grateful in 2005 while their brothers on the WB remained occupied. Instead, they retained solidarity.

How the bagel went from shtetls to haute cuisine
