I note your comment

rather than swindling the people in the land, i.e. the Palestinians, and impose a racist state doomed to perpetual warfare within and without to sustain it.

I see you are yet another dupe, that has fallen for the 2nd rate propaganda of the Arab. Historical fact obviously has no bearing on your thinking. The reason the Palestinians were Swindled, as you put it, has nothing to do with Israel. The reason they are refugees is mainly due to the fact they trusted their Arab Brothers, and their own stupidity.

1) The Palestinians were racists when they refused to accept Jews have a right to be in Israel and to co-exist, it was their racist views that was the origin of their plight. Now they live with their fellow Arabs who do not give to them, what they refused the Jews, they live in refugee camps because their fellow Arabs do not want them, Nor do they grant them citizenship.

2) The happily fled their lands after their fellow Brother Arabs promised to wipe the Jews off the face of the earth. The promise of their Arab brothers that they would return after driving the Jews into the sea, is a matter of history.

3) The Palestinians individually, gladly sold their land, and still want to except for the death threats they face from their fellow Palestinians if they do.

The racist sea that surrounds Israel is that of the Arabs, and the hate they show has a price to pay. The Palestinian plight is not that of an innocent victim, but of a willing accomplice to their own demise.

The Palestinians would have a rich and prosperous country now if they had welcomed the Jews to their poor and backward land in the 1900's. Much as the Palestinians want others to welcome them.

If they had welcomed the Jews, there would not have been the need for the British to partition in 1948, and the UN to endorse the founding of Israel. If their Arab Brothers had not tried to kill every Jew, Israel would only be a fraction of its current size. Most countries welcome immigrants who bring capital, skills and talent to their new home. Palestine before the arrival of the Jews was a stagnant and poor society. Any sensible people would welcome investment and skills to such a dust bowl. have you seen pictures circa 1890'sf the masjid al-aksa? So much for the Muslims loving the place, it was falling apart!

I have seen public toilets in better condition, prior to the Jews wanting to immigrate to to Palestine the area was the dumping ground of the Turks. Now the Jews have value added, the Arabs want it back. Bludgers!

Many countries and nations have been guilty of what the Palestinians tried to do, unfortunately for the Arab Palestinians, the arrogance of the Arabs, and the backward and racist nature of their thinking, resulted in the plight they are now in.

The Palestinians have reaped what they have sown. The only swindle is the victim mentality that the Palestinians have that have allowed them to perpetually bludge off the Western world. "Bludge" is an Australian term for those too lazy to work, and live off the hard work of others.
