To Neil: Yes, Palestinians were displaced in the war that began after the Arab nations rejected the partition of the land previously held pursuant to the British mandate and declared war on the fledging Jewish state. That the Palestinians still live in the conditions that they do today is more attributable to the desire of their Arab brethren to keep them in squalor to use as a weapon against Israel and the widespread corruption of the Palestinian leadership than anything Israel has done. Further Israel has absorbed tens of thousands of Jews forced out of Arab countries by hatred and persecution. Stick to Scottish history which I hope you know a little better.
