sxydrkhair> I am not defending them or anything. I am not saying they are right or wrong.
Yet this topic is about them, so why are you simply making the usual kangaroo court accusations (e.g. "stolen", etc.) already refuted elsewhere?"Palestine" is the Latin/European name for Eretz Yisrael, the Jewish homeland
- and Arab denials of the existence of "Palestine".http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/349491
sxydrkhair> I think he got it from this source.
I note that the source references "Jews", not "European Jews".
So IanCT (and your) first dishonesty is exposed.
Furthermore there is nothing in that source which contradicts anything I said.
Again, 80% of the area allocated to Israel was the "uncultivatable" area of the Negev (the Beer Sheva sub-district) which was not privately owned by Arabs.
You told us that Arabs owned 12,767 sq km and ended up (by the 1947 UN partition compromise) with 12,610 sq km.
Are you telling us that you went to war over 157 sq km which is 61 square miles?!
sxydrkhair> Right of Return doesn't means to destroy Israel
There is no such thing as the so-called "right of return".
It is exactly code for the demographic destruction of Israel.
A "two-state solution" by which both would be Arab states.
The reality is that only about 10% of the Palestinian Arab refugees and their descendents even want to "return" to live in peace in Israel.
The reality is that the Geneva Conventions call for host nations to grant citizenship to the refugees living in their countries.
(Not to mention that their children, let alone grand-children, born in those countries should be citizens.)
samxr prefers that the Palestinian Arab refugees in Lebanon (and elsewhere) remain imprisoned in camps so that they can then be used as a demographic army by which to over-run Israel. He calls that "pro-Palestinian", but I think we all understand that it's simply "anti-Israel" - another of many signs that he hates Israel more than he cares for his own brethren.
