The arab countries did not work to persude the arabs to leave in 1948. If we can't even get the facts straight, we can't talk about the next steps. I can't believe we could still be discussing such matters after the facts have come out and become widely known... so please lets be serious - we created the refugee problem, we should assume the responsibility for it and solve it, without undermining our own wellbeing. I think the only way for peace is ending our either/or mentalitiy - it's all of us, together, Israelis and arabs. No need to turn the table back at the arabs. And if we, Israelis, show the good intentions first, then we would get the credit for it and we would have begun correcting our mistakes - we grow as nation by doing that, not the opposite.
