"It`s still not fair, however, to free Israel, an economically prosperous supposedly democratic state, from blame for the plight of the refugees" I place my blame on the Arabs who chose war after war after war, in an insane attempt to destroy Israel, and Zionists, and Jews. I place my blame on the Palestinians who choose terrorism rather than the state of Palestine, offered several times, most recently in 2000. Going back in time to blame "imperialists" won't help the Palestinians. "Imperialists" created Pakistan and India. India is democratic and economically prosperous. The story for Paksitan is not quite as cheerful, is it? What's the difference between the two? The Palestinians will have a golden opportunity once they choose their state, but that opportunity will be wasted if their energy is all spent on "blaming Israel".
