However, I could only imagine how offended they would be if the Palestinian refugee problem was called a lie and conspiracy..." In fact it has been called just that many times. Many Israelis refuse to believe the Palestinians were driven from their homes and land and forced into refugee camps. There is still too much deception and lying about what is happening today, which has nothing to do with what happened to unfortunate Jews who left or were expelled from other lands in the past. The Palestinians are not to blame and should not be paying this terrible price for crimes they did not commit. For instance if Jews were driven from Iraq -- and I know some were -- it is unconscionable to continue punishing Palestinians just because they are also Arabs. Terrible things have been done to Jews and Palestinians, and there is much to be forgiven if there is ever to be peace.
