"there were already millions of people living in the land we now call Israel."


1) There have always been Jews there
2) Around 1900, there were approx. 600,000 people in the land. In 1930, there were 1 million, nearly 250,000 of which were Jews and Christians. In 1947, there were 2 million people in the land, 600,000 of which were Jews.
3) There were hundreds and hundreds of thousands of Jews in neighboring Arab states that were forced out of those countries. But you don't hear about that. And in fact much of that whole region had a large Christian population until the Muslim massacred them - which is in fact what triggered the crusades.
4) Many in Palestine immigrated there from neighboring Arab countries as well.
5) The vast majority of Palestinian territory was NOT taken by Jews, but in fact by neighboring Arabs of Jordan.
6) And while there were originally only 700,000 Palestinian refugees, today there are about 6 million. Pregnancy is a bitch. The real problem is that everyone is reproducing.
7) The largest camp of refugees is in Jordan (the larger half of the Palestine territory).
8) "Palestinians are not allowed to hold or even apply for Saudi citizenship, because of Arab League instructions barring the Arab states from granting them citizenship" - you see the Arab League doesn't want Palestinians to have any home. They want them to remain refugees so they have an excuse to eradicate non-muslims from the region. And THAT is the #1 reason why Palestinians suffer. They're a tool....
