Again, you have missed my point. Andy Murray in his post made the statement that 'Ancient History' doesn't matter and that religion should be kept out of it. My point was that you cannot solve this conflict without taking into consideration history and relgion. If you accept his position that history doesn't matter then population statistics of 1948 (or 1967, or last week) are irrelevant. The conflict will go on endlessly with both sides attempting to create 'facts on the ground' for CNN and Fox News or until one side uses overwhelming force to destroy the other G-d forbid. If you accept that history does matter then you cannot just look at 1948. You have to look at the source of the Jewish claim to Israel going back to the Bible. You have to take into account Jewish history going back to ancient times and the fact that Jews never gave up their claim to the land.
