    Over 30 million people were transferred willfully or forcefully in the last 100 years. Greece & Turkey is just one example. There's no doubt a significant, if not the majority, of Israeli Arabs consider themselves Palestinians. While this is not wrong, this inevitably creates a rift between them who sympathize (and often aid)with the enemy, and the rest of the Israeli people. One only needs to see the statistics of how many Israeli Arabs aided suicide bombers, or the recent actions of their elected representatives, one of whom is considered a fugitive after he aided a terrorist organization at a time of war. When you mix this enemy sympathizing along with the Islamic beliefs the majority of them hold, this will no doubt turn into a bloody civil war in the near future. The only humane way to avoid this is a transfer between Israel and the Palestinian state. Settlers for Israeli Arabs. It won't be the first time, it won't be the last time.
