That is a good article, Outsiders71. I'm terrible with timelines, but I think it explained it well. I'd say after 4,000 yrs it should be theirs. There should be a statute of limitations on land claims. LOL Also, Israel is so tiny. Muslims already have nearly all the rest of the middle east. Why fight over such a little area? It doesn't seem logical. It's like saying I have 100 whole apples of my own, but I must have that slice of apple from that youngster across the way as well.
Israel has less land mass than NJ. It represents 1/16th of 1% of the Arab land in the middle east. Israel has 12,877 square miles and their 21 Arab nation neighbors comprise 8,368,272 square miles. No matter if the west supposedly spurred it on (and I can imagine the west inciting greed), it's petty to want it too.
