    "Is it not a core premise that the Jews were longing to return to Zion." No, that is not the core premise. The core premise is that the Jews needed a nation where they could defend themselves and "normalize" the Jews. However it was a decision each person or family should make on their own. The early zionist wanted to create a safe haven that Jews could move to if they wanted. I know a number of Jews from the Arab world and I know there families stories and you cannot deny what happened to them. I do agree there is no parity however; Jewish refugees are completely innocent victiims. They were not party to the conflict in Palestine - their treatment is akin to the treatment of Japanese Americans in WWII - innocent victims - quilt by association. Palestinians by contrast were party to the war in 1947/1948 and therefore you would expect them to suffer the consequences of that war
