So in all of this, what happened to the right of the Palestinian people, the everyday man, woman and child who were living their life in their own homes and land? For a people who occupied that land for centuries, the creation of Israel as a state meant dislocation, forced takeover of their property and expulsion from their land. So if the Jews had a right to return to a land they had left over two thousand years ago, why expel another people and take over their land when you were welcomed into their homes? Its easy for us sitting in our comfortable, warm and legally protected homes in the West to shout about terrorism, Hamas and Fatah. Why are we forgetting that the relocated European Jews were actually welcomed into Palestine by the indiginous people? The anger and hostility against Israel did not start till the West forced a demarcation to create a nation where one did not exist. Lets all forget history and scream at the wronged for demanding their rights.
