"Irene, sweeite, Israel can defend itself behind its borders ..you got 78% of the Mandate. Why the whining?" Actually, Jordan got the first 78% of the Mandate, Jew-free. The Arabs refused to split the rest. The areas which came under Jewish control after the 1948 war maintained a large Arab population. The areas which came under Arab control were cleansed of Jews. The Arabs started another war and Jews got to move back in. Why are YOU whining about Jews living where there has been a Jewish presence for thousands of years?
