    Saying that I am "confused" will not change the facts. Silly tactic. No matter how, the Arabs were driven out of their land, 450 villages destroyed, all houses worth preserving taken over by Hungarians, Germans, Poles, etc., just because they were of the Jewish faith. You still did not answer the old question: why did the Jews wait until the British and Arabs had liberated Palestine from the Ottomans to demand a Jewish state? There were about 9% Jews in Palestine, they had lived in peace with the Arabs, Muslims and Christians. For some reason, that peace was shattered when thousands of immigrants began flooding in. They were not wanted. A people has a right to want to keep the ethnic character of the land without disturbing the demographical balance. And the Arabs are still resisting. Not because they are born with a hatred for Jews or any other religion, they just want their land back, they want their own state without interference from Western intrusion.
