In 4 days time Israel will celebrate its 57th Independence Day. The nakid fact is, that on the very same day, the Palestinians could have also celebrated their own 57th Independence Day. The one and only reason they will not, is that the Palestinians chose, out of their own free will, not to establish Palestine 57 years ago. The reason they didn't establish Palestine, is their refusal to accept the partition principal. They objected the idea of a Jewish State in part of the land, even if it was to be estableshed solely in the city of Tel-Aviv. So, in expression of contempt to UN resolution 181, they decided to prevent the establishment of Israel, and once established, they tried very hard to wipe out Israel. They had done so, with the help of the entire Arab League, which invaded Israel when it was one day old (May 15th, 1948). All the rest - including refugees - are consequential events to that aggression aimed at Israel's destuction. Can't do the time, don't do the crime. Just like Germany had to give up the German territories East to the Oder river to Poland after WWII, including the expulsion of German residents of those districts into what was left of Germany, similarly the Palestinians have to take responsibility for their aggression.
