(BTW, they would have been justified in "carving out" homelands in Germany, Poland, France, Austria, and other locations wherein they were themselves subjected to genocide (and I would be willing to donate half of Texas), but they had no justification for what they did in "carving out" Israel.
I'm sorry, but I think this is rubbish. There is no genocide. There have been atrocities on both sides, the war is dirty, but the Palestinians are no angels, remember Munich? Remember the guy in a wheelchair on the Achille Lauro, remember the eye doctor? They invented blowing up people on planes remember?
Yes we can discuss the foundation of Israel till the cows come home, but at the end of the day Israel exists; and is the size it is because the Arabs went to war on it and lost.
I'm sorry, but I have lost patience with the Palestinians. Plus frankly since most Palestinians have never been near Israel proper for two generations now, the "right to return" is becoming academic.
