    Tony- Jews have always lived in Israel. We never left. Ones forced to leave just want to return as you suggest. My ancestor ended up in Spain back around 1492, but were then forced to Libya only to make their way back to Israel over a 100 years ago. Both the Spanish and Libya did not accept them and encouraged them to depart in hast. Other ancestors ended up in Russia. The Cossack insisted they leave too. So they eventually made it back to where they came from - Israel! These are just two examples. I have friends that fled Yemen, Egypt, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Germany, Poland, Holland.... the list goes on. Another example... When I was a kid, the grandfather of a good friend of mine remembered when the Turkish were in charge in Jerusalem. His family has always lived there. They never left. If you really think that we should return to where we came from then realize that is exactly what we have done. If you really care, you would encourage both sides to treat each other fairly as you would expect brothers to treat each other. After all, we are all son's of Abraham. This family feud has gone on long enough.
