The jews came in huge numbers to a land where they were a clear minority (true) The local arabs didn't want them (understandable) and started wars (somewhat understandable) The jews won, and the local arabs became refugees as they were (most likely) forced to leave The Jews then thought that the local arabs would manage to rebuild their lives in a different place just like we were doing. But they didn't. The local arabs, it turns out, are less able than the jews, when it comes to "restarting your life". We overestimated their capabilities, thinking they were like us. Nevertheless, it is their prerogative, and the fault remains ours. We need to take care of them, just like we help less abled individuals in our daily lives. Just because we can, and they can't.
