This crap about Palestine being a land of Arabs is entirely disproven by history. The land was a barren waste by the end of the 1800s when the Jews began to return and clean it up making it again habitable. When this happened the Arab bedouins returned too because it was a welcome oasis in a desert land. Once oil was discovered in this region of the world Arabs became greedy, violence erupted between Jews and Arabs, and things have escalated from there.
