"why did the palestinians not rise up against the jordanians or egyptians, or the british or the ottomans. that excuse is as tired as it is untrue." ash - FYI: The Palestinians DID rise up against the tyranny of the British, the Ottomans, the Jordanains and the Israeli's. The Egyptians occupied the Gaza Strip which was - at the time - simply a few villages with quite a small population. The population size in Gaza sky-rocketed when Palestinains sought refuge from Israel's tyranny. Today, 80 percent of Gaza resident are refugees and their descendants. Does that answer your question?
