How can you say Jews have tried to "live in peace" with Palestinians when the Jewish State has been practicing ethnic cleansing since its inception in 1948?If they wanted to obliterate the Palestinians living in the region, they likely could have done so...Instead they have tried to live in peace with them, and some Palestinians have been open to that arrangement. Unfortunately, others have not, in particular the adherents to Hamas, whose attitude towards the Jewish people is not different than that of Adolf Hitler. It was evil then; it is evil now.
"Between 1947 and 1949, at least 750,000 Palestinians from a 1.9 million population were made refugees beyond the borders of the state. Zionist forces had taken more than 78 percent of historic Palestine, ethnically cleansed and destroyed about 530 villages and cities, and killed about 15,000 Palestinians in a series of mass atrocities, including more than 70 massacres..."
"Today, there are about 7.98 million Palestinian refugees and internally displaced persons who have not been able to return to their original homes and villages.
"Some 6.14 million of those are refugees and their descendants beyond the borders of the state; many live in some of the worst conditions in more than 50 refugee camps run by the UN in neighbouring countries."
