    to justify Israel's inability to do a fair deal on Palestine. In 1947, the UN gave away half of Palestine, an Arab territory, to a European caste who had once lived there. It is not surprising that the Arabs objected and fought! How would you feel - from the safety of London - if the UN decided to give away half of Israel to another race next week? Would you sigh, accept your lot and shake hands with them? And when they went on to evict Jews, seize their homes and land and businesses, would you turn the other cheek? Of course you wouldn't! The Arabs came to the point at Oslo of reluctantly accepting that what had happened could not be undone. The PLO recognised Israel. The Arab League has said it will upon Israeli withdrawal to the Green Line. The bit the Israeli narrative leaves out is that THINGS CHANGE: both sides have fought it to a standstill. Israel is no longer dealing with the Arabs of 1947. The only problem now is Israel's FURTHER land-grab of Arab territory.
