Shimon, The reason no no one said anything from 1948 to 1967 in defense of the "Palestinian" Arabs is that there was no such people known as "Palestinian" Arabs until 1964 when Arafat declared himself a "Palestinian". The only "Palestinians" were the Jews who had been there from time immemorial, through Roman and Turk conquests but refused to leave, to this day. The Arabs who lived in the area had fled or were expelled from their native lands and went to the land now known as Israel seeking work from the Jewish inhabitants who paid better and treated them better than their Arab brethren who are now so concerned with their well being that they continue to do nothing of substance to help them.
