    That you are so ignorant about the history of Israel and Palestine, yet you think you know so much. Jews and Arabs in the region were historically allies until the 1920s when Palestinians started deadly riots against the Jews (many of whom had been victims of riots in Eastern Europe). During WWII, the Palestinian leadership collaborated with the Nazis and planned to exterminate the Jews there if Rommel broke through British lines in Egypt. After the war, the Jews agreed to the U.N. partition, but ALL the Arabs in the region rejected it and declared war on Israel. In 1967, the Arabs were poised for war against Israel again, but Israel struck first against Egypt. The only reason why Israel occupied the West Bank now is because Jordan thought Egypt was winning (Egypt told them that) so they tried to join in the fun too. After the war, Israel was willing to negotiate for peace, but the Arabs were not. Instead , the Palestinians engaged in a campaign of terrorism, refusing to discuss peace until the 19990s.
