    The Arabs who left Israel during the War of Independence are refugees, but their descendants are not. This is the way it is everywhere else in the world.

    The 1948 Arab invasion of Israel failed because the Israeli military met the invading armies at the borders and drove them back. There was intense fighting in the borders and many so called Palestinians in those areas attacked Israelis in concert with the Arab armies, and when the Arab armies were forced to withdraw, these Palestinians withdrew with them and became refugees. Also some Arab villages in the South that lay in the path of an invading Egyptian army were evacuated and the Arabs fled to the Gaza Strip. In addition, some Arab villages that held strategic positions near the fighting were evacuated and those who evacuated peacefully were moved to other locations within Israel and those who violently resisted evacuation were forced to retreat out of Israel. All of this occurred in areas near the fighting and in areas away from the fighting, Arabs were actually urged to remain, as in Haifa. Abbas came from Jaffa where the Arab residents attacked the Jews and drove them out of the city and then panicked and left Israel out of fear fo retribution. There was never a plan to expel any of the Arabs, and if the Arab nations had not attacked Israel, there would have been no refugees.

    As usual, your argument was dismantled and you have been backed into a corner, so all you got are emoji's. Typical Tinmore,

    :lol:

    Arguing with Tinmore is like arguing with a 5 year old. It's so goddamn easy to make him look foolish :lol: :lol:

    Actually, since the year 70 of the Common Era, which is somewhat less than 2000.

    I just returned from Israel. Everyone there speaks Hebrew. Many Eastern Jews don't speak Yiddish at all. I don't even speak Yiddish, and I'm Ashkenazi. As for the kippa, it's not even mentioned in the Torah. It's a Jewish custom. I agree that gefilte fish and kugel aren't Mideastern food. That's why it's unique to Israel. Tinmore once put up a picture of a Palestinian breakfast, but was promptly told by everyone that this breakfast is eaten throughout the Mideast. As for religious holidays, Christmas is a legal holiday in the USA. Easter Monday and Pentecost are legal holidays in many European nations. How can the Palestinians be descendants of the Canaanites when they were destroyed by the Hebrews? Many of the other nations you mentioned, like the Chaldeans or the ppl of Ur, lived in other countries, like Babylon.

    In short, like Coyote said, your entire post is bizarre. And Tinmore marked it as a winner, lol!

    What's that holiday the Palestinians celebrate each year to honor Ba'al?

    Oops, I'm forgetting.

    There isn't one.

    The Arab nations are no longer attacking Israel. They learned how costly that is in their death count. But as for Palestinians, well, that's another story.
