    While I KNOW you must be kidding, let me just summarize a response. Zionists didn't *take* anything. Palestinians have control of 70%+ of Palestine. Lest you forget, Jordan was always considered part of Palestine. Go scream at Jordan for *stealing* 70%+ of the land. In point of fact, Palestinians have NEVER had their own country because they are ethnically, simply, Arabs residing in what was termed Palestine by the Romans. Nothing more. Israel was more than willing to have a two country solution in 48. The Palestinian Arabs and their ALLIES, the surrounding ARAB countries chose NOT to have a 2 state solution. This was not Israel's doing. It was the doing of the Palestinians and surrounding Arab countries. Lastly, MORE Jews came to Israel from Arab/Muslim countries, after being kicked out since 1948, than left what is now Israel, in 1948...to the tune of DOUBLE. Why were the Palestinians not allowed to live in the abandoned Jewish communities in those Arab countries?

The silenced history of the IDF's 'Mizrahi problem'

In 1951, a British-born officer wrote a report about the treatment of Mizrahi Jews in the Israeli army. It shows that there were already voices within the establishment warning against racism.
