    1. All the land that Jews acquired before 1948 was BOUGHT, often at exorbitant prices, and there are documents for this. The Arab owners knew whom they were selling. 2. There was no Arab in general country before 1948 in Palestine. The status of this land waited to be clarified. 3. Some 70% of the land did not belong to Arabs, but was a state land! (see for example Negev, constituting ca. 50% of Israel, the then-no-man's-land) 4. Arabs not only disagreed in 1948, but NEVER in history they agreed to talks on future of this land under auspices of UN or League of Nations. Even in 1937 when for Jews only 7000 km2 was proposed and Jews were asking for 10000km2, we are talking about an area of 10% of Kashmir!... 5. And finally to understand why Jews were so striving for this land, you MUST take into account that in Europe they were in 90% exterminated, while at the same time most of countries refused to take jewish refugees or narrowed quotas instead of widening them for humanitarian reasons
