Dear Ryan, The answer is out there, actually, if your mind is open enough to see the larger picture. No one will dispute that the Palestinians are a part of the larger Arab nation (be their majority largely Egyptian Bedouins who migrated to this region in recent generations or otherwise). Thus the Palestinians are part of the greater Arab populace, that being a part of the greater Middle East. The greater Middle East spans 9.7 million sq Km, whereas Israel's current borders of 20,000 squared kilometers is only 0.21 percent of this total size. In other words, Israel fits 500 times into the rest of this region. Yet the Arabs and other Muslim nations have no room for the Palestinian people. Where they have taken them, it has largely been as non-national refugees, where they live in squalor and as 2nd class citizens, and rot there waiting to enter the only place in the region that is not Muslim dominated.
