Before Israeli statehood, Israel was a fairly large heap of dirt. After Great Britain offered this land to the United Nations, that's correct, this was a territory of England and not owned by Palistinians as you say, it was to be partitioned between Arabs and Jews. Any land owners who had land taken were compensated. Noone was driven from their homes. (I take that back.) Noone was driven from their homes by Israelis. Many large Arab groups forced others to leave Israel so that it could be invaded by the powerful Arab armies which surrounded Israel. After declaration of statehood, surprise surprise, Israel was invaded by ALL of its neighbors which intended to conquer the entire land. The world thought that the Arabs would succeed, but they instead got their asses kicked by an infant nation, which in turn took land by force to ensure national security. By your same rationale, should we return the United States to Great Brittain? We did beat them in the war, but maybe we should just give it back? That's what's expected in Israel? What'ya say mate?
