    So your argument is there is no archeological evidence of Arab society? My family was dispersed from Southern France several hundred years ago by the Church. I am not deluded enough to think several 100 years later I have claim to it. Most of southern France is covered in Roman ruins, should it succeed to the Italians, or Tunisia and Lebanon for that matter? Oh, that is right, Tunsia should belong to Lebanon, silly me. How about Italy to the Greeks as they originally settle many cities. Lets just forget that 100s of years of history have passed. Why not, pack your house and go back to Europe. Give it to the Mexicans because the Mayan temples=claim. Much of Israeli society moved in the past 100 years, not from the Middle East, but Europe. Getting Middle Easterners to accept Europeans in their midst as a rightful Middle Eastern nation will take a while. Was Israel necessary? Yes. But, attaining what was neccessary intrisicatly meant harming those already residing in the nation
