I have to set back and see that in some ways, as Jews, we did take the land from the Arabs, but this stolen land has been fought over for thousands and thousands of years by multiple religions. For the most part, I do not see a problem living amongst the Arabs, Christians, you name it. And I do not believe that every Jew has a problem with the Arabs and vice versa. The problem lies on the extremists end (both sides). That- we tend to forget. In some essence, in every country around the world, land was stolen.. lets face it.. the U.S stole the land from the Native American Indians. Unfortunately, in any war, innocent civilians are killed. It is a sad truth and I believe those who chose to stay behind and fight for their "land" are aware of consequences that could happen. However, It doesn't make their sacrifice any less sad than those who leave and die.
