And before it slips my mind let us not forget that the Jews who lived in Arab lands were abused by the Arabs that lived there. Are we to forget reparations for those Jews that lost their land there.
The refugee camp problem is not limited to blaming Israel. What happened during 48'-67? Egypt and Jordan didn't run around offering the non-existent Palestinian people land, nor did they encourage refugees to come back.
For that matter a large number left their homes because they believed the rhetoric that the mighty Arab armies would push the Zionists into the sea. War is hell, especially if you end on the wrong side. You fight, you lose, you get nothing and nobody loses sleep over it.
There has been a continuous Jewish presence in Jerusalem and the rest of Israel, or did you forget that. There is unbiased historical proof that the Temple did exist on the Temple mount. Just as there is proof that Muslims have a thing for building their mosques on top of Jewish and christian holy places. Ask the christians in Nazareth, it still happens today.
Abraham was the first Jew. But you won't believe that because it doesn't jibe with what you want. I'll be kind enough not to bash Mohammed and call him a thief of ideas and religion provided you try not to tell me about my religion.
