You wrote, "All this shows is that Israel should have gotten rid of all of them when they had the chance. Israel was attacked. "
That is ANOTHER Zionist lie. the lie is that "Israel was attacked" when the fact is that the Zionists had already attacked from Nov 1947, that is MONTHS before MAY 1948.
You push the Zionist lie that it is wasn't the Jews who attacked FIRST. let me explain this to you, The misleading story often told is that "Jews declared Israel and then they were attacked."
The fact is from November 1947 to May 1948 the Zionists were already on the offensive and had already attacked Arabs. In the months before Israel was declared, the Zionists had driven 300,000 non-Jews off their land. In the months before Israel was declared, the Zionists had seized land beyond the proposed Jewish State. This is a critical fact often omitted when the history is presented and this leads to a very distorted view of what happened in 1948. n practice, Zionists did not accept the UN Partition Plan. Zionists seized areas beyond the proposed Jewish State and did not recognize the International Zone. Using force and terrorism months before May 1948, Jews seized land beyond the UN proposed borders. The UN Plan was used as a pretense for taking over most of Palestine. http://www.representativepress.org/IsraelHistory.html
you can't use terrorism, drive 300,000 people from their homes and seize most of the land and claim that that is not an attack!!!!! WHAT the Jews did WAS AN ATTACK! Stop spreading lies that Arabs were the agressors, what the Jews did was a massive act of agression and they struck FIRST. Got that? LOOK at the history, you act like all the events from Nov 1947 to May 1948 never happened!!! During those months Zionists were commiting horrific crimes of rape, massacre, theft, torture, and ethnic cleansing.
"Rape, massacre, theft, torture, ethnic cleansing: these are not crimes which nations can defend with ease - especially when unearthed by their own historians. Israel recently faced this most troubling predicament. Combing through declassified state archives, Israeli scholars of the past twenty years have discovered their nation was founded upon the mass expulsion and deliberate destruction of the native Palestinian people. Israel, it turned out, was far more Goliath than David. Since this presented somewhat of a public relations problem for a state still engaged in brutalizing Palestinians and stealing their land, a new self-justifying rationale needed to be authored.
