    Howdy Ernie; OK, what do we have here? The Israeli War of Independence caused the displacement of 750,000 Palestinian refugees (although they weren't called that at the time) some of whom were forced to leave but most of whom left voluntarily at the urging of various Arab leaders who planned to destroy the fledgling State of Israel, thus, allowing the Arabs to return to their homes within a few weeks. To everbody's surprise, this never happened. Today, the number of Palestinian refugees and their descendants number almost 4 million living in refugee camps scattered all over the Middle East and North Africa courtesy of their Arab brethren who have refused to grant them citizenship even if they were born within their countries. Most of these people are on the UN dole in the form of UNWRA or depend on NGOs for their subsistence. On the other side of the coin, we have 860,000 Jewish refugees who were forceably expelled from various Arab countries.

Why the Jewish establishment won’t condemn the occupation

Unless more U.S. Jews who oppose the occupation become members of established Jewish organizations and donate money, the establishment is unlikely to heed calls of those who want it to condemn the occupation.
