    Did you read the quotes I posted? If not, I will post them again for you. See if you can pass them through your Jew-hating memetic filters this time.

    "The fact that there are these refugees is the direct consequence of the act of the Arab states in opposing partition and the Jewish state. The Arab states agree upon this policy unanimously and they must share in the solution of the problem."
    Emile Ghoury, secretary of the Palestinian Arab Higher Committee, in an interview with the Beirut Telegraph Sept. 6, 1948.

    "The Arab state which had encouraged the Palestine Arabs to leave their homes temporarily in order to be out of the way of the Arab invasion armies, have failed to keep their promise to help these refugees."
    The Jordanian daily newspaper Falastin, Feb. 19, 1949.

    "Who brought the Palestinians to Lebanon as refugees, suffering now from the malign attitude of newspapers and communal leaders, who have neither honor nor conscience? Who brought them over in dire straits and penniless, after they lost their honor? The Arab states, and Lebanon amongst them, did it."
    The Beirut Muslim weekly Kul-Shay, Aug. 19, 1951.

    "The 15th May, 1948, arrived ... On that day the mufti of Jerusalem appealed to the Arabs of Palestine to leave the country, because the Arab armies were about to enter and fight in their stead."
    The Cairo daily Akhbar el Yom, Oct. 12, 1963.

    "For the flight and fall of the other villages it is our leaders who are responsible because of their dissemination of rumors exaggerating Jewish crimes and describing them as atrocities in order to inflame the Arabs ... By spreading rumors of Jewish atrocities, killings of women and children etc., they instilled fear and terror in the hearts of the Arabs in Palestine, until they fled leaving their homes and properties to the enemy."
    The Jordanian daily newspaper Al Urdun, April 9, 1953.

    Actually, the Palestinians who stayed in Israel proper have been granted Israeli citizenship, and are allowed to vote in Israeli elections. The 700,000 Jewish refugees displaced by the surrounding Muslim countries were accepted into Israel, but the surrounding Muslim countries refused to settle the Palestinian Muslims within their borders. The two countries which have killed the most palestinians remain Jordan and Syria; Jordan killed 20,000 of them in one slaughter, more than Israel has killed in its entire existence. Where's your condemnation of THAT atrocity?

    I would dearly love to see a two-state solution with Israel and Palestine living side-by-side in peace and harmony, and sharing as their common capitol the internationalized city of Jerusalem. However, the Palestinian that negotiates such a settlement will be assassinated by elements of Hamas, Hizbullah, Islamic Jihad, Tanzim, the Al Aqsa Martyr's Brigade or some other indigenous Radical Muslim terror organization, much as Israel's Yitzhak Rabin, who was trying to do the same, was killed by a Jewish Zionist extremist.

    The websites I have pulled from include the New Yorker, the Atlantic Monthly, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, Policy Review, MEMRI, etc. They are neither anonymous nor bigoted nor self-serving. And where does Lawry get documentation to support his vicious assertions against me and afainst anyone who would dispute his narrow-minded and propagandistic view? Of, that's right, he doesn't bother with such things at all, does he?
