Nearly none here know the true history
And most prefer being ignorant
Fact: There were very few arabs on the land in the late 19th century.
Fact: The arabs negotiated the creation of Israel and signed a treaty to that effect in 1919.
Fact: The absentee Turkish landlords sold the land to the arriving Jews...legally, and at inflated prices.
Fact: Though there were few arabs as late as 1913, the arab population quintupled between 1920 and 1937...they came from elsewhere as they saw economic opportunities...and electricity...in the Jewish state they agreed to.
Fact: Nearly none of today's so called palesitnians can trace their roots in that land any further than most Israelis.
Fact: Once the jews had created something of value in the state...the arabs decided to renege on the deal they had made...and steal all the land, towns, cities and industries the jews had built.
This is all historical fact. You can find this in many hisrtorical texts...even on the UN site.
No one stole the arabs' land
The arabs are like someone who sells their car to somone...then regrets it and wants it back once it's been fixed.
But know some are frothing at the moouth thinking I am lying...I leave you with this...a start on your education.
Agreement Between Emir Feisal and Dr. Weizmann
3 January, 1919
His Royal Highness the Emir Feisal, representing and acting on behalf of the Arab Kingdom of Hedjaz, and Dr. Chaim Weizmann, representing and acting on behalf of the Zionist Organization, mindful of the racial kinship and ancient bonds existing between the Arabs and the Jewish people, and realizing that the surest means of working out the consummation of their natural aspirations is through the closest possible collaboration in the development of the Arab State and Palestine, and being desirous further of confirming the good understanding which exists between them, have agreed upon the following: ...
The Arab State and Palestine in all their relations and undertakings shall be controlled by the most cordial goodwill and understanding, and to this end Arab and Jewish duly accredited agents shall be established and maintained in the respective territories.
All necessary measures shall be taken to encourage and stimulate immigration of Jews into Palestine on a large scale, and as quickly as possible to settle Jewish immigrants upon the land through closer settlement and intensive cultivation of the soil. In taking such measures the Arab peasant and tenant farmers shall be protected in their rights and shall be assisted in forwarding their economic development.

And an aticle that sums some of this history
The fact is that the international community, including the emerging Arab nations, recognized Israel at the 1919 Paris Peace Conference which was held by the victorious Allies in order to settle international questions after the 1918 Armistice ended World War I.
