    Look at it this way, 63 years ago you had no state, nothing. You were refugees. Be happy with what you were given by the UN, the representa­tive body of the world community, at the other guy's, (the Palestinia­n's), expense. What you should be doing now is working with the Pals to get them a state in whatever territory they have left plus some Just Compensati­on for what they lost. That would be fair and you won't have to live under siege for another 63 years. Is it right that displaced Pals need to live in refugee camps to this day? You know, when you think about it, this whole Middle East dilemma was caused by the Germans and the UN which tried to remedy the situation that the Germans created for the Jews by establishi­ng a refuge for persecuted Jews in their historical homeland. If the Germans had not done what they did there would probably be no Israel today. That said, the Israelis are victims too living under siege for 63 years? Bottom line: Let the Pals establish a state and set get the UN to establish something like a Middle East Compensati­on Commission where people, Arabs and Jews alike, who have claims resulting from the UN's establishm­ent of Israel can come, set forth their claims, and walk away with a check. That's fair.
