    There is a reason for this. This whole conficlt started BEFORE 1948 when Israel was unilateraly declared. It started when the Arabs of Eretz Yisra'el (today called Palestinians, which are part & parcel of the People of Israel, albeit Arabized ones, & of the Muslims, Christian & Samaritan faiths) refused to accept our presence in Eretz Yisra'el. But can we blame them? They were told by us, the Jewish Israelites, "we're back, it's not your land, & we're taking charge." We said to them, "screw the fact that we are a minority in Eretz Yisra'el as a whole", "screw the fact that what numbers we do have is largely because of the New Yishuv, from aliyot of only a century earlier". We said "accept our supremacy & our dominion". Zionism never called for an egalitarian binational state. Like anyone with dignity, they didnt accept these terms. So THEN we asked for partition. Its not that they didnt want peace or coexistance; they didnt want overloards! They saw what was comming for G-d's sake!
