It is not because they are Jews , but because the Arabs genuinley feared being dispossesd and replaced by the Jews in Palestine. The Jews did not come with just a bible and a plow , but with the gun too. Their Zionist intentions were published. They clearly did not come to coexist , but to create an ethnicaly pure jewish state , excluding the indigenous Arabs. This is a fact. Not surprizing that the Arabs would resist and still resist such an entity. Who wouldn't ?
