    This is an interesting article for the point it makes about Gaza essentially being granted a quasi state status when Israel pulled out a couple of years ago. So essentially we have had a Palestinian state attacking an Israeli state.

    But what really caught my eye was the claim:

    If it is true that 800,000 Jews were sent by Arab countries to Israel, this is tantamount to an admission of Israel's right to exist.

    Well that's a completely different story. Jews didn't belong in those countries in the first place. Ask any Arab.

    You mean people who are not muslims don't belong in muslim states? That s the general consensus in all Arab states, wether it is official policy or not. (even turkey, what claims to be a secular state).

    Pretty much my point. And when the demographics of a country change from being non-Muslim to even a slight Muslim majority, the Muslims begin to force the non-Muslims out. Just look at Lebanon.
