Israel must be steadfast in protecting its people and their rights r11.

Many nations and people continue to question Israel's control of its Ancestral, and internationally guaranteed liberated territory. (See: the Faisal Weitzman agreement of 1919)

It seems too convenient no one is mentioning the historical fact Arab countries had terrorized and expelled about a million Jewish families and their children from their countries. Moreover, it seems forgotten the Arabs illegally confiscated all Jewish assets, businesses, homes and over 120,000 sq. km of Real estate property. (Hitler would have been proud).

Like the American Indian "Trail Of Tears", many of the Jews terrorized and forcefully ejected from Arab countries died due to hardship, famine and starvation during their effort to get to Israel. More importantly, it cannot be ignored many of the expelled Jewish families had lived in the Arab countries for over 2,500 years. Longer in fact than the very Arabs who were expelling them. Most of the expelled Jewish people, their children, and families were resettled in Greater Israel and today account for over half the population of Israel.

The Homes and Land the Arab countries confiscated from the Jewish people totaled approximately 120,440 sq. km., or 75,000 sq. miles; which is over 6 times the size of Israel. The value of the confiscated Jewish assets, land and homes today would be worth trillions of dollars.

During the 2,600 plus years the Jewish people and their children lived in Arab countries they suffered Pogroms, Libel claims, beatings, beheadings, false imprisonment and extreme hardship as second class citizens. Jews had their businesses, homes, and houses of worship pillaged and burned. Their wives and daughters were raped, Arabs sold them as slaves, and Jews were forced to either convert to Islam or be murdered. This trend of terrorizing Jews by the Muslims, goes all the way back to the Jews in the Jewish city of Medina (today Saudi Arabia) in 627 CE after the Muslim religion was first created by Muhammed and the city was taken over by the Muslims as their second holiest city.

The Arabs received over 5 million square miles of territory after WWI, which contained a tremendous resource of oil reserves. History proves Israel territory extended all the way up to Iraq, which would make the land and all those oil reserves belonging to the Jewish people. Yet, Arab nations are no longer satisfied with the gift of land and oil to which they never had legal claim. Now, Arab nation are demanding more land and more compensation.

Furthermore, the Arab countries are not satisfied with having once terrorized and chased away the million Jewish families and their children. Now, the Arab countries want to chase the Jews away from their own ancestral and historical land. (You have murdered them and now you expect to inherit their assets).

Israel must respond with extreme force to any and all violent demonstration and terror. Israel's population is entitled to, and must have peace and tranquility without intimidation by anyone, at any cost.

The Jewish people have suffered enough in the Diaspora for over the past 2,400 years. It is time for the Jewish people to live as free people in their own land without terror and violence.

It is long overdue and about time to consider and realize that the only realistic solution for a peaceful coexistence in Israel is a population transfer of the Arab-Palestinians. It is time to transfer said "Arab-Palestinians" to the territories the Arab nations confiscated from the Jewish people. Also considered to receive said "Arab-Palestinians" should be Jordan which originally was Jewish territory and illegally given 78% of the 120,000 sq. km. Jewish territory to the Arabs as a new state.

It is time, nay, past time to settle this dispute once and for all. Instead of utilizing all the financial aid and resources for conflict and terror, the financial aid and resources must be used for relocation, housing and new industry. In so doing, the "Arab-Palestinians" will realize a boost in their standard of living and be able to finally stabilize their lives, thus benefiting the host countries as well. Many Arab leaders have suggested these solutions for many years.
