Can there be Jewish citizens in a "Palestinian" country?

No one has ever mentioned the sad position of those Jews living in land areas earmarked for a separate state solution. Would they have at least an opportunity to stay as citizens in the new country or would they have to be uprooted? Even Sadat insisted the Sinai be "Jew Free" and did not offer such a choice for Jews living in Yamit which was destroyed and the inhabitants forcibly removed.

Most people are not aware that most of these "settlements" are on purchased land or abandoned land not "usurped" land. In 1939 Hebron was made "Jew Free" by the new Arab haters who murdered them. Much settlement was originated on invitation by King Faisal who reigned prior to the Wahhabi-Saudi scourge. King Faisal, a direct decendant of Mohammed and Fatima clearly knew his Koran which details a clear acknowledgement of the area as the Jewish homeland. The Wahhabi-Saudi scourge came about with the brutal conquest of Mecca and Medina shortly after the fall of the Ottoman empire following WWI. The British failed to protect King Faisal from this menace which continues to this day thanks to the power of oil wealth which fell into the lap of these followers of the heretic Wahhab. Wahhab perverted the Koran for power and profit.
