Ever since the 2nd aliya, no Zionist ever referred to Palestine as a people without a land. As for the Hebrew labor policy, in the Jewish public economy, it was meant to counterbalance the fact that Jewish workers were excluded from the private sector since Jewish entrepreneurs and Jewish landlords preferred to hire Arabs who accepted to work for miserable wages. Finally, as for the military imposed Israeli Arabs until 1966, let's not forget that Israel was at the time, surrounded by Arab countries calling for its destructions, and the Arabs of Israel openly supported them. In fact, it's quite surprising that Israel managed to preserve its democratic institutions in a constant state of war. By the way, the Zionists offered an alliance to Arab nationalists as early as 1912. They even sent a delegation to the first Arab National Congress held in Paris, in 1913. Even Ben Gurion, whom postzionists like yourself despise so much, offered the creation of a Semitic confederation which would have united Israel with the Palestinian Arabs and the rest of the Arab world. Frankly, what could've they done more to reach an agreement with the Arabs, forsake Zionism? It's exactly what you are proposing. Nevertheless, denying the self-determination right of the Jews merely because the Arabs who already possessed a quite large territory, did not want to share a small part of it with the Jews who were a landless nation is not a rationale that will ever be accepted by a majority of Israelis, for whom, self-hatred is not a political agenda!
