    First, you treat the founders as if they were senseless and had no conception of the issues they faced- untrue. Second, history shows that many of the Arabs (not Pal's- since there were none prior to 1964; unless you include British Mandate Language) left of their own fears or promises that they would be home in a day or two after every Jew was killed. Three, Israel did not take the land...it was promised by Balfour, established by League of Nations and ratified by the UN. Theft only occurs if you take something not given freely...Do not then argue that Israel stole land it conquered in war since the Arabs never owned the land because they never agreed to the partition. Lastly, Israel is being asked to redraw is nation because the Arabs ignored a diplomatic solution that the Israeli's agreed to in 48'. It is tiring to here Israel wants no peace. If so, it never would have agreed to the 48' partition plan. The Arabs ignored it...
