The Nazi assumption of power in 1933 triggered a massive refugee crisis as German Jews sought to find safe haven from persecution. Between 1933 and 1936, more Jews emigrated from Germany to Palestine than to anywhere else in the world. Around 154,300 Jews (including 34,700 from Germany) had entered Palestine legally and thousands more illegally, increasing the percentage of Jews in the Palestinian population from nearly 17 percent in 1931 to almost 30 percent in 1935. In the spring of 1936, tension over Jewish immigration and land purchases and the failure to establish a Palestinian governing body erupted into prolonged violence, often referred to as the Arab Revolt. When the Mandate government declared a state of emergency in response to a riot that left nine Jews dead and 57 wounded, Arab nationalist leaders formed a national committee for independence and called for a general strike. Al-Husayni, who had the most to lose from a break with the British, was initially non-committal, but then decided to assume the presidency of a newly established Arab Higher Committee. On April 25, the committee demanded that the British halt Jewish immigration to Palestine, ban the transfer of Arab lands to Jews, and establish an Arab national government. Despite al-Husayni's assurances to the British High Commissioner, the strike degenerated into violence in mid-May.

Screw Netanyahu, there's a nation at war with itself. What can we do to resolve that?

Yeah, that's exactly what it sounds like, Netanyahu is making it sound like Hitler wasn't the cold blooded, genocidal murder he was until someone told him to all the Jews. Now, to be fair, the Palestinian he speaks of was all for the death of Jews but giving the H man a pass and putting all the blame on the Palestinians is incredible! Unbelievable, and just goes to show ya how far this man will go to demonize his enemies while always pulling out some sort of Holocaust card against them. So drink it up people, because this kind of BS is amazing!
It's because of this man and the gov't he leads that soooo many people are turning their backs on Israel.
But who is really going after the ideal of ethnic proselytism ?

40% of Israelis think 'Jewish State' law would damage the country
75% of Israeli Jews Oppose Palestinian State on '67 Lines
As of now only Yesh Atid, the Joint list and the Meretz have a 'progressive' stance on settlements. That's 29 out of 120, less than a fourth thus perfectly in line with the second poll. People get the politics they vote for.
