    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.
