1. The article is vague as to the territory we're talking about. Are we talking about Arab villages within what is now called the green line or outside of it. 2. Let's not forget Jewish settlements like Gush Etzion which are considered now part of the west bank and are supposed to be within the territory of the future Palestine, although Jews settled on these empty lands in the 1920's. 3. We all know there were Arab villages in Palestine. What are the news here? But when Zionism started back in the 1880's and the first Zionists came to settle the land, the fact is that it was vastly unpopulated. The "Villlage files" are from the 40's. Many Arabs came to Palestine to Palestine after the first Zionists started developing this wilderness. So the people who look at the info from these Village maps should also give info on when the villages were established, how many people lived in them etc. Arabs that came to this part of the world after the first Zionists came, have no more right on it than the Zionists. 4. These Village maps show mainly that the Jews were much more sophisticated and analytic in the way they approach security issue and everything else, as a matter of fact. They prepared themselves better and made sure they were ready for every development. 5. The Arabs need to get over their victim attitude. There was a fight over the land and they were more barbaric and merciless in their attacks, and killed Jewish men, women, children, doctors, nurses whenever they could. The Jews won not because they were more brutal but because they were smarter. If anyone has doubt, just imagine what would have happened had the Arabs won the 48 war. There would have been no Jew left alive to tell the tale.
