    To Sayed: War and displacement sucks. Human suffering is sad always. But there are reasons why they happen. A people that starts a war against another people cannot grieve its misfortune for years without ever looking in the mirror and taking responsibility for past mistakes. In 1948 the Palestinian Arabs decided to reject the state offered to them by the UN, the first ever Palestinian state to exist on this land, and called the Arab armies to come and kill the Jews in Palestine and conquer the whole land. 5 state armies waged a war against the 600,000 Jews in Palestine. The percentage of Jewish fighter who lost their life in that war out of these 600,000 was huge. Many widowers, many orphans, many moms and dads who lost their sons. Grieving is natural and human. But you can cruel and unjust and violent and grieve. Misfortune doesn't make you justl.
