Fact: The Israeli Arabs attacked Israel from within and without. They used their positions on hill top villages to attack Jewish movement in the roads. That made their villages military bases. These bases were destroyed. Those towns (like Abu Ghosh) which did not attack, are today peaceful villages (non Orthodox Jerusalomites flock their to eat on Sat). Fact: 800,000 Jewish non-combatants were evicted from Arab and Moslem countries. Fact 10,000,000 refuges were resettled after WW2 (the same time period). You and your friends have to move on and get a life or they can sit in camps for the rest of their lives. Just remember this, they are the only people from the 1940's who still choose to sit in refugee camps rather than move on. I have a friend, a Chek German refuguee in 1945--today a college professor.
