    In 1947 there was not Israel. There were zionists. As for your points, let's see: zionists in 1947 accepted the partition plan because they knew full well that it was the beast offer they had on the table and barely that. They sttod to gain everything while Palestinians gained to loose everything. They were loosing areas which still had an Arab majority which would have come under zionist control and made them second class citizens as they are in Israel today. After war broke out, Israel drove out over 600,000 from those areas, Galil, Ramle, Lod, West Jerusalem. Israel was not "willing" to take in a large Arab population;it did do because it had no choice and the Revisionists have always had a policy of transferring that segment of the population from the state of Israel.It is not the Arabs turning Israel into an Arab state but rather the opposite of Israel into a State of the Jews. To deny it is to deny facts created on the ground over the past 43 yrs.
