Since all but a few of the Arabs who left in 1948 were ordered to do so by the Arab Higher Committee or the Arab Liberation Army (all instances carefully documented), it remains a disgrace that Israel has been told to let their descendants back. It was a bad decision by the Arabs to invade Israel, and a big mistake to tell so many towns and villages to leave. That’s tough, but it’s what you get when you try to boss other people around. As it is, the Arabs have the vast majority of the land originally designated for a Jewish and an Arab state, if we include Jordan. But the Palestinians say over and over again that they want it all, including the Jewish homeland. Look at the Middle East as a whole and see how many Arab states there are (and what a mess they are in), then ask why they can’t bear to let the Jews have even the smallest strip. Look at a map.
