    1. The Palestinians did not agree to situation in which they were still the majority receivng less than the minority. Further, they were not content with being a majority in a section that would become part of the Jewish State. I know you cannot understand the narrative of the palestinians but just let me say that from the point of view of the Jews in 1948, especailly after the horrors of the Holocaust, the Jews had nothing to loose. They would take what was offered because they knew it waas the best they would get at that point in history. The Arabs felt they had everything to loose and that they had been shafted. 2.Were your parents in Egypt in 1949 willing to take on Egyptian citizenship or were their passports French,Italian or British? If your parents had assests that were seized of course they should be compensated.But because they were not does not mean that Israel's theft of Palestinian wealth,property, homes and bank accounts is right nor that Israel must make full restitution
