Uh- BooBad- your link from 2010 don't work. Web searches don't turn it up, either.

In addition that's only one item - you haven't addressed any other points raised.

So, one more time:

More shucking and jiving, BooBad- nice footwork! - but you STILL haven't provided any proof of this "survey" nor addressed any of the other points or questions.

I do note that you ignore the rights of the Jewish refugees of 1948 from Arab lands. What about them? Do the rights of 640,000 Arab Muslims exceed the right of 820,000 Arab Jews?



77% of the "Jewish Homeland" was split off in 1924 or so to form the Kingdom of TransJordan, where Jews were not allowed to settle. This was by the Mandate Power ( GB) . The remainder was to be the new "Jewish Homeland"

Those were the LAST borders accepted by the Arab League. Shouldn't we go back to them?

They think that is just fine, as long as the Jews are ethnically cleansed like from the West Bank in 1948 to 1967, and from most of the Arab nations post 1948 to the present.

The expulsion of Jewish minorities from other countries was criminal, and should obviously be reversed. However in very large part this happened in the wake of the expulsion of the majority Palestinian population of what became Israel. Without that precipitating factor there is no reason to believe it would have happened.

Any right of return for Palestinians should be accompanied by a similar right of return for Jews who see living in Israel as exile from other countries. So far as I know this demand has never been put on the table in negotiations, and it surely should be.

The only way for people like Brucie and his little band of fanatics to continue their fanaticism is to ignore the fats of what has happened and is still happening - no reference to Israeli behaviour, just the continuance of old wars - lethally detrimental to Jews and non-Jews alike.

McGrath,
Without that precipitating factor there is no reason to believe it would have happened.

An alternative view.
"It is the custom to say that Zionism was responsible for this (expulsion) development. However, the region's anti-Semitism would have developed even without the rise of the state of Israel because of Arab-Islamic nationalism, which resulted in xenophobia. The fact that these events have been obscured has served in the campaign to delegitimize Israel, and therefore to a large extent, the same population that suffered this oppression. The fate of Palestinian refugees, their proclaimed innocence, and the injustice they endured form the main thrust of this delegitimization. The Jewish refugees have suffered more than the Palestinian refugees and undergone greater spoliations. However, they became citizens of the countries of refuge, especially Israel and France, while Palestinians were ostracized from the Arab nations. -

"...would have developed even without the rise of the state of Israel because of Arab-Islamic nationalism..." In the opinion of the Jerusalem Centre for Public Affairs, which would not appear a wholly dispassionate organisation.

A hypothetical speculation like that cannot be disproved. But to be. In any way persuasive it would need some pretty strong evidence. The history of anti-semitism linked to nationalism does not have an equivalent in Islamic history, prior to the colonial experience of European settlement and takeover in the Palestinian region.

Israel puts its point of view with guns, chemical weapons, blockades, Berlin-type walls and denials - you just offer their denials.
You've had the reports on equality (the Or report was from Israel itself), you've had the filmed evidence, you've had researched and documented accounts of Israeli war crimes and atrocities, you even have over 100 vetoes protecting Israel from her crimes - all you have ever offered in return is Israel's denials.

Israelis who are living in exile in Israel should of course be free to return to the countries from which they were exiled. The government of Israel should be pressing for this to be agreed, and The governments of such countries, as well as Palestinians, should be supporting them in this.

A return to those borders might make a lot of sense, bruce. There was of course no suggestion on either side at that time that the Muslim and Christian residents of the area identified as available for Jewish immigrants should be expected to be displaced.   A united Israel/Palestine shared by both peoples was anticipated, and there is a great deal to be said for such an outcome, if it could be achieved.
