I think there needs to be more honesty about how cruel the dominant Zionist plan was and is.
Yes there were Jews that didn't want a discriminatory system imposed on the non-Jews. Decent Jews like Ahad Aham were shocked by the attitude and actions of Zionist Jews. He complained as early as 1891, "They treat the Arabs with hostility and cruelty, unscrupulously deprive them of their rights, insult them without cause, and even boast of these deeds." Some of the Jews who didn't want to go along with this Zionist agenda were murdered by Zionist Jews for taking such a noble stand.
Let's be honest about what the agenda was, the father of Zionism plotted ethnic cleansing and Jewish supremacy from the beginning. Herzl wrote, "Immigration is consequently futile unless based on an assured supremacy." And very early on, he set about trying to get the power to implement the ethnic cleansing he desired. He went to Constatinople in 1901 in an attempt to get a charter that would have given them the right to deport the native population of Palestine.
Look what was done even to many of those you describle as "lucky." In the first 8 years, the Jewish State took away a staggering 50% of all the land owned by Palestinians remaining in Israel. The shocking fact is some 39,000 Palestinians who were "lucky" to find themselves within Israel were robbed anyway! "Israel seized property and land from some 39,000 Palestinians who escaped expulsion and remained in Israel. It was never retuned, and these individuals never received compensation although they are citizens of Israel." (see The Palestinians: In Search of a Just Peace by Cheryl A. Rubenberg )
