    "First Europe tried to exterminate the Jews by pogroms, expulsions and the holocaust." No it didn't. A few individual countries did. "Now they are joining the Arabs in trying to deligitimise Israel." Nothing 'deligitimising' in Israel abiding by the law. "Why did the Palestimians not accept a Palestinian State in 1948." The Jewish Agency, under Plan Dalet was already in control of some of the Palestinian territories by May 14th 1948, so the Palestinians could not have declared sovereignty even if they wanted to. Never the less it was not mandatory that they form a state, even though Israel did. "Because they were led to believe that Israel would be destroyed." No they weren't. Read the Arab Declaration on the Invasion of Palestine. Remember Israel was not a part of Palestine by 15th May 1948.
