jews started killing own Palestinian citizens the day after '47!other arab states didn't have an attack plan until few days prior the "war"!and they didn't cross self-declared isr borders (since despite the '47 res they took Jaffa and other cities like Jerusalem!) jews took 12% more land!(read about the village archives, that jews had been preparing since the '20s;about Biltmore in'42, and many other things that are proof jews didn't want that much Pals in their future state+ wanter more land!!Jews had to agree to the plan(not only gurion said it was a must that they can later ignore!)=jews only had about 6% of the land in Brit.Mandate and since the UN res. gave them the MAJORITY of land-despite the fact there were an immigrant minority!!!!!-they didn't own the land they got from the UN!!+ were about 50%-50% of the population, so jews had to agree to the plan to start to implement what they planned for a long time!!Gurion and others said and even wrote that!!. The big number of Pals weren't acceptable for them so they started the war in '47 by attacking its own citizens, destroying over 500 villages!!before 1948 jews killed and kicked out over 300.000 Pals and destroyed villages!!Arab states just went to the palestinian territory to protect the rest of Pals that were being slaughtered and kicked out by jews!!and not only- egypt didn't want jordan to take more land, etc!so don't lie! isr even had an agreement with jordan! so keep your poor hasbara to ignorants...Simha Flapan's book is awesome- quotes from isr archives,etc- read it! and live with it! not to mention the CIA reports...
