    Howdy Vijaya; The original UN partition plan of 1947 suggested that the British Mandate of Palestine (minus Trans-Jordan) be divided along demographic lines so that Israel would be predominately Jewish and the rest of it would be predominately Arab. The Jews accepted UNGAR 181, but the Arabs did not. The vast majority of the Arabs who left in 1948 did so at the urging of their own leaders and were not forceably expelled (although some were). Which territory is uncontested, disputed, or occupied depends on where the border is and that has never been decided. The West Bank has about 250,000 Israel settlers, the Gaza Strip has none, and the Golan Heights has about 20,000. Where did you get your figure of 1 million Soviet Jews from? If you think that Israel will ever relinquish her sovereignty over the Western Wall in East Jerusalem ever again, then you are sadly mistaken.
