Let's keep this in perspective. Just exactly WHO are these "Palestinian people". An excellent account of what "Palestine" was, can be found in Sam Clemen's tour book known as "INNOCENTS ABROAD'.
That was right before the first wave of northern European immigrants, starting in the 1880's. Prior to the settlements following World War One, Palestine was TURKISH territory - I trust most of you know that if you value your teeth, you don't call a Turk to his face "arab"...…!
Frightened of the increasing French and English activites in northern Africa, the Imperial German government encouraged retired Imperial German military and their families to settle in Palestine (which explains why so many streets in modern Israel still carry German names. (I trust many in here know that Arial Sharon's real birth name in what was then Palestine was Erich Von Shinermann…..).
So the Brits and the French started sending over locals trained in terrorism to harass the settlers. That was the start of a "civil war" ( most un-civil) that ended with the armistice agreements of 1948. The winners of those seemingly never-ending "civil" wars changed the name of the place to Israel. True, some on the losing side aren't happy about that, just as I am not happy that the boundries of Poland were moved many hundreds of miles west seizing my family's ancient estates in what WAS Prussia.
Bottom line- winners get to write the history. Losers...well...they get to lose! So called "Palestinians" lost (a good number of them, like the late Arrafat, were actually Egyptian by birth (for those who do not know, Egypt is in AFRICA.....!
Definitely not fair. Anyone want to advance the argument that I should have my family's ancient estates back in, again...in what WAS Prussia?
Additional side note - my ranch here in northern Arizona - is on land seized from the Yavapai Apaches by American soldiers in the 1880's.
Who wants to guess what my attitude would be if they tried to take MY land back....!
What was that again...about winning being more fun than losing...?
