The issue of Israel was decided by the UK and France. This was for their own geopolitical reasons. There was no reference to those who were living there at the time of the division. They had every right to protest as would any self respecting people. The returnees were "given" more than half of the land.. I live in a country - Australia - where people from England turned up and without reference to the People of the Land claimed the lot for England and very soon declared the People of the Land sub-human. The English and other Europeans did a similar thing in what was to become the United States. Perhaps this is why the US and Australian governments are so found of the Israeli government. Land without a people lie in place in all three countries.
