It was not "Arab" Land..."It was only after the Jews re-inhabited their historic homeland of Judea and Samaria, that the myth of an Arab Palestinian nation was created and marketed worldwide. Jews come from Judea, not Palestinians. There is no language known as Palestinian, or any Palestinian culture distinct from that of all the Arabs in the area. There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians. "Palestinians" are Arabs indistinguishable from Arabs throughout the Middle East. The great majority of Arabs in greater Palestine and Israel share the same culture, language and religion.
Much of the Arab population in this area actually migrated into Israel and Judea and Samaria from the surrounding Arab countries in the past 100 years. The rebirth of Israel was accompanied by economic prosperity for the region. Arabs migrated to this area to find employment and enjoy the higher standard of living.
There was not 2 million people in the land when my father was there in WW2. I have his diaries to prove that! Also learn your history. The Arabs that chose to stay in the new Israel were welcomed. The leaders that told the Arabs to leave told them that it would only be for a few days then they could return and take everything the returning jews had and kill them. Unfortunately..the Arabs listened to their leaders.
According to Samuel Langhorne Clemens (Mark Twain) it definitely was. Look up "Innocents Abroad" . Here is a quote " Most of the country is “a silent, mournful expanse,” dotted with “nasty” villages of “miserable huts” and “the usual assemblage of squalid humanity” — disfigured wretches “fringed with filthy rags” and “infested with vermin,” naked and “sore-eyed” children “in all stages of mutilation and decay.” But Twain directs his barbs at everything and everyone: pilgrims, other travel writers, even himself.
The Palestinians have been offered everything they wanted many times a All they needed to say that Israel has a right to exist and have refused it! The Arab states h ave invaded Israel 5 times. yet Israel has won against overwhelming odds. Israel knows that you can not have peace with someone who wants to kill you.
Yo u do know that Abbas has said that when Palestine becomes a state that no Jews will be allowed to live there? As for J Street etc, they do not even want Israel to exist! I have read and watched their posts because I like to know both sides of the story. However I can not support people who believe that they must annihilate all Jews and Christians for that matter because it is written in the Koran
I am not violent inbany way. I do not speak for anyone but myself. I love looking at history. What I see of Israel is that it was once a deserted wilderness, that the Arabs had control of for centuries and did nothing with. Which now is a very prosperous nation, which exports everything from Technology to Agriculture.
