    it is so ironic, Jews claim the right to the land from ancient time and based on covenant with God, broken or unbroken, that all depends. Then they gather from all over the world, displacing the people of the land and of course, that is ok and there is nothing wrong with it. Then they want to start history on 29th November 1947 when the immigrant community got more than 60% of the land allocated to them when they only own a small fraction. Then they claim, the Arabs went to war, when all along the immigrant Jewish community had the best trained and equiped army within Palestine and they waged war of terror against Palestinian community. Then they claim the Arabs declared war on them. Somehow there is something missing here. It is true that history is written by the winners, but that does not change real facts. It is true the Arab leadership was not mature enough, if not too stupid to realize what was happening to the people. That does not change the fact that our people where wronged.
