On Nov 29 1947 Gaza and the West Bank including east Jerusalem was the PALESTINIAN STATE. On Nov 29 1947 the rest of the land...basically rocky desert..... was the Israel state. Had the Palestinians decided to take their fertile land and run with it we would not be having this conversation. But that was not to be and 5 Arab states and the Palestinians attacked Israel May 15 1948. Israel survived and from 1948 till June 1967 Israelis made their desert land bloom and flourish. The Palestinians and Arabs still only wanted to take what Israel had. Yes Israel has had nothing but problems with the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank but for God sake why ? Why can they now and why could they then not just leave Israel to be ? Is it not at least part of their warring ways that have put Israel and themselves in thjis position. Why is it only Israel at fault ?
