    As an Arab Jew who whose family has been torn from countless lands, I think I can say a word or two about disposession. Look folks, to call Kasrils a kapo is akin to calling Martin Buber a kapo. Today, there are some 4m Palestinians desperate for independence but in a confined land choked by our very own Jewish settlements?along with the fences, checkpoints and all the hardships and indignities of military occupation. There is, admittedly, plenty of blame to go round. What right had the British, in 1917, to promise the Jews a national home in Palestine? Why did the Palestinians reject partition in 1947? Why did Israel colonise the territories after 1967? Why did the Americans let Israel get away with it? Why did the Arab states leave the refugees to fester in camps? The Palestinians are terrorists, Zionism is racism, Israel's enemies are anti-Semites. Arafat should have accepted Israel's 'generous offer' at Camp David in 2000. But, hang on, Israel's offer was not so generous...
