Well, what can I say except, never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

Isn't the subsequent expansion of Israel beyond the borders laid down in 1948, a direct result of Arab Invasions of Israel?

So therefore the expansion of Israel isn't a result of Jewish 'forcing Palestinians from their homes, but the military incompetence of the Arab armies and aggressive polices towards Israel in the first place?

And finally, is it not true that a very large percentage of Palestinians were really just migrant workers from Trans Jordan and Syria, that immigrated to Israel due to the economic improvement that resulted from Jewish settlers in the 1920s and 1930's? Most native Palestinians sold their worthless land the the Jews and moved on.

Therefore most 'Palestinians are really victims of their Arab Brothers aggression, not Israel's.

Most Palestinians suffer because their Arab Brothers keeps them poor and in camps. If a Palestinian lives and works legally in Australia for 5 years, they can become full citizens. There are second and 3rd generation Palestinians living in the UAE and Lebanon, who are still stateless persons in the country of their ARAB BROTHERs

I therefore ask, looking at the facts, WHO REALLY CAUSED THE SUFFERING OF THE PALESTINIANS?

Who has really treated the Palestinians worse? I think its their Arab Brothers.
