John, you have not done much research. There are huge numbers of errors in you "short" history. During the 1930 the British put significant quotas on the number of Jews who could go to Palestine of for that matter any other part of the British Empire, precisely at a time when they needed a refugee. If Israel had existed millions would have been saved, but instead had to remain in Europe because no country would grant them refuge. The Arabs have also not always provided a safe haven for the Jews of the middle east. There have been periods when they were persecuted and they were always second class citizens. Since Israel was created virtually no Jews have remained in the Arab world. There are as many Jewish refugees from the Arab world as Palistinian refugees. Most now live in Israel although some live in the US and Europe.
