It's an absolute falsehood to claim that "Arabs started a war of extermination" at the time of the 1948 war. An absolute LIE.
You need to apologize for that.
I need to apologize because the Arabs have tried to wipe out Israel numerous times and failed. Purely because it is Jewish and not Muslim/Arab. They are racist and antisemitic at the same time.

You can read this in their own document, by their own statements and actions. You are in denial. Their intentions was to drive the Jews into the sea.
The war began long before 1948 including the Palestine Arab revolt in much of the 1930's massacres against INDIGENOUS Jewish civilians throughout the 1920's.

Still waiting for a definition of Zionism and a legal document which gives the Palestinians as a nation the right to the land. Maybe the first Palestinian leader???

The Arabs also admit that they are not from Palestine. Listen to Hamas, Fatah and PLO leaders admit this on video and in documentation.

So basically your hatred is so blind that you deny the facts even when the Palestinians admit it themselves.

Idiot. Jewish settlers attacked Palestinians, not the other way around. They seized the lands by force as Palestinians fled the terror. And they've kept Palestinians in bondage ever since, murdering them from time to time.
Jews WERE in that land. Romans forced them out. End of story unless you're a religious zealot. Palestinian Arabs have lived there for generations.
They were not "settlers" but legal land owners. Interesting how for many here Jews don't deserve any rights and they call up bigots.
The majority of Arabs left without seeing a Jewish soldier. Those who stayed are the 1.5 million Arabs who are Israeli citizens today.
The Arabs of the land started the war decades earlier and lost. Name one war in the history of the world where the loser gains from the victor?
Half of the Palestine Arabs are not from Palestine of their own admission. Abbas the PM of the Palestinians said in an interview that his family left Tsfat of their own accord. Hamas leader said they are from the Egypt and Syria, Arab Parlimentarian Achmad Tibi also said on tv that the Palestinians (he is one) are an invented people.

The PLO Charter of 1964, when there was not "occupation" of the WB, says that they give up any claim to WB, Gaza and Jerusalem. They don't call for a state but the destruction of the Jewish one.

Still waiting for any legal document, any evidence that the Palestine Arabs owned more than a fraction of the land, and a definition of Zionism.

Israelis have never been happy with the land that they were given, even though most Israelis had no connections to the land before 1948, and very few had connections before 1930.

With all these so called "land grabs" why did Israel leave Lebanon, S.Syria, Sinai, Jordan, Gaza, N.West Bank if its intentions were expansion??

Nothing you guys say makes sense.

Israelis were happy with the land they fought for but the Arabs and Palestinians will never accept any Jewish state or better put non-Arab/Muslims State in the region.

So now you are changing history?? The land is written throughout Jewish history from Historical documentation, poems, songs, prayer, etc. Jews have lived continuously on the land for thousands of years.

Maybe you should spend as much time looking into where the Palestine Arabs came from rather than focusing on the Jews.

Jews have been a majority in Jerusalem for example since the mid 1800's. There was no New Jerusalem until the Jews starting building it in the 1940's.

Half the Palestinians are not indigenous to the land and also arrived from the 1800's onwards.
more came the preceding century.

The UNWRA had to change their definition of refugee to include those who arrived on the land within two years of Israel being created. This was necessary because so many of them were immigrants.

As for owning the land NOT ONE PERSON HERE HAS EVER GIVEN ANY EVIDENCE THAT MORE THAN 10% OF THE LAND WAS OWNED BY THE PALESTINIANS.
The fact is that under Ottoman Rule most of the land was not available for private ownership so how could they possibly own the land??

Maybe ask Arafat the father of the Palestinians who was born in Cairo.
What about Achmad Tibi their representative in the Israeli Parliament who said that the Palestinians are a created nation.

Maybe read their own documentation and listen to their words as they say the same as me.

Ask the Chechen leader why he opened a Mosque in Ab Gosh last week on behalf of his country and the residents of the village who came from Chechenia. I though they were indigenous.

What about the 40,000 Syrians who moved to W.Palestine in the 1940's?

All you have to do is go through the names of the Palestinian families. Their names are based on their indigenous location. Interesting how hardly any are from Palestine.

Since you are so sure than give any international legal document which gives the Palestinians as a nation the right to the land??

This shows how the world don't care about facts and international law when it comes to Israel.

If Israel had no legal right to the land than negotiations would be irrelevant. Most of the free countries in the world agree that there must be negotiations.

Maybe you should ask why the European countries which signed the Oslo Accord supported Palestine in the General Assembly. It is clear from the Accord that neither side may go to the UN to push their agenda. The Palestinians have not only not following anything they agreed upon but also have gone against every agreement signed.

Read the PLO Phased Plan to see their true intentions.

So in your opinion facts and legalities are irrelevant if the world opinion is against Israel.

Oh and you should look up the definition of occupied territory as it can't be occupied in a defensive war (Jordan started the war between the two nations) from a nation who had no legal right to the land and was actually occupying it. The Palestinians are not a nation as they would have to be to be relevant in this discussion.

It was the Anti-Semitic Red Cross who changed the definition from Disputed-Occupied with no legal basis.

It was the "civilian" "peaceful" Arabs who massacred the Jews in Hebron, Jerusalem and Tzfat in the 1920's.

Why did Israel allow 150,000 to stay and asked for more to return originally?

Why didn't the destroy the Mosque on the Temple Mount?

Why did these "civilians" commit Genocide and ethnic cleansing on the Jews who lived in Gaza, Jerusalem, West Bank if they were peaceful?

What about the Arab uprising throughout the 1930's, massacring Jewish women and children, which created the Jewish groups in the first place?

I suppose Israel is still trying to commit genocide??

That is why every single part of their lives improved under Israel rule.
That is why the Arabs of E.Jerusalem would prefer to be citizens of Israel rather than Palestine?
That is why homosexuals and Christians flee to Israel from Palestinians areas for fear for their life.

and on it goes.

I'm still waiting for the nation of Israel to refuse to take any more of those welfare payments they have been taking from us since the US saved their azz in the Yom Kippur war.

Sadly: I doubt that it will happen in the lifetime of anyone here.

They are a nation of schnorrers.

As usual you can talk a lot until challenged on the lies you are spreading. Then you try to change the subject as you are clearly unable to give any real evidence of mass Palestine Arab land ownership.

Just admit you are a hater who has no idea what they are talking about.

The US benifits from the aid which is all military and most of it goes back into the US economy. It gives the US tech advances and control over much of Israels domestic and international policies. Most Israelis are against this aid including myself ( i am not Israeli).

Interesting how you make no mention of the $Billions going to Pakistan and Co who are often openly hostile towards the US. But when it comes to Jews you preach.
