    Get off your high horse. Learn some history. The Jews are the only ones to have a Nation State in the Land of Israel. Everyone else who attacked, squatted and left it behind as desert knew whose land they were in. The Arabs living there know too. It says so in their Koran. The end of WW11 saw a lot of colonisers like the Turks and Brits leave their colonies to the indigenous people. The Brits had Palestine. They gave a tiny corner of it to the Jews - the indigenous people of the area - and the majority of their mandate to Arabs. The Jews invited their exiles to return home. At the same time, the Arab world made life impossible for millions of Jews in their midst, who had owned the land they lived on for hundreds of years. It was stolen from them. The Jews picked up, started afresh in their self-determined land, and still have 20% Muslims as citizens. Let the Arabs stay and be happy or delf-determine to Jordan. Your arguments are designed to keep the wounds open.
