I don't want to be attacked, and I know that I may not have as much experience as some of you, but this thread rates a response...
As far as I know, the palestinians were kicked out of Saudi Arabia for causing too much trouble. They were a tribe, as many were before these
countries were formed, and they were opposed to the rule of the Saudi Royal family. Now as far as how they came to lose land to Isreal? All of the
nations surrounding Isreal attacked them! and Isreal kicked their butts and took small pieces of land. (Isreal) . Again, these are not the finest
details, but those familiar with the story know it. Anyway, Isreal took some land to act as a buffer zone because the Islamic nations wanted their
destruction. (through treaty) (Look, as far as claims to the lands of trhe earth, if you go back long enough, someone else has owned or occupied
almost every land on this earth before! so Isreal has as much right to defend itself, if not more due to the violent nature of their enemies). (no, I
am not Jewesh) This "buffer" zone, is their best protection, and they never started the war!
Look, the palestinians have two choices. elect a gov't that wants to modernize and develop their nation, or war with isreal. they chose to take the
latter. what if they had that land anyway? they wouldn't havbe done anything with it just like they havn't with the land they have now. Unless
Isreal left all their developments, and they have shown that they will only return bare land, which is what they started with. The Palestinians are a
backwards people that are just aching to fight a war that they NEVER could win without help or the rest of the world stopping Isreal with a tap
