    It's very ironic calling the Arabs the squatters when Jews at the beginning of the 20th century didn't even constitute more than 5-7 percent of the population of Israel/Palestine. No matter how much people want to revise history, the facts from numerous documents, i.e. U.S. King Crane Commission, Peel Papers and other pertinent British documents furnish proof that the Arabs were the majority of Palestine. Even before the bias imposed UN Partition Plan of 1947 the facts are the Jews were 1/3 of the population (after numerous migrations to Palestine) and owned 10 percent of the land, while the Arabs were the majority. Then all of a sudden of a war the Palestinians couldn't fight after being destroyed by the British during the Arab revolt, the Jews flew in hundreds of thousands from Europe, Arab countries etc and became a 3/4 majority of the population. It's the same Jerusalem's territory is expanded and walls are built by Jerusalem to ensure a 73 percent to 26 percent Jewish majority. The same goes for giving up Gaza (EVEN THOUGH THEY CONTROL BORDERS, AIRSPACE, GOODS THEREFORE IT'S A PRISON) since now Israel seems to think those Palestinians don't count as the population. JUST AS THEY RENAMED OVER 400 ARAB VILLAGES INTO HEBREW NAMES OVERNIGHT, there is no way that this terrible injustice will ever be imposed on the Palestinians. The fact that there is even an argument about trying to retain any land from 1967 shows that the greed of the Israeli politicians is the problem. Oh, you can continue to keep making life unbearable for the Palestinians but umm... they ain't going away. The Palestinian state with some part of Jerusalem as a capital is an eminent reality no matter what the Talmud, Bible, or Quran says. Eventually we Americans will all wake up and realize God will not punish us for abondoning the 3 billion in aid to Israel and using that money to strengthen AMERICAN INSTITUTIONS! PEACE
