    You moan and whine about palestinians continuing to be stateless and never ever refer to the original state that they had. Get real. There never was a Palestinian state. Nobody "lost" it. There was no Palestinian state ever created, no foundation for one was ever built. Egypt and Jordan held whatever land they grabbed in '48. What makes you think for even a moment that the two wouldn't have divided up Israel had they won in '48? Jordan even had a postage stamp in circulation showing a "greater Jordan" that included what is Israel today. There was no palestine ever in the cards as far as the arabs were concerned. It's only after getting their butts kicked did the issue arise. It only became a serious issue for the arabs when Israel was knocking on the doors of Damascus,Cairo and Lebanon and it finally sunk in that military victory just wasn't going to happen.
