Bugsy said:This geezer's actually got it wrong! The Brits handed Palestine back to the Palestinians (including all the McTaggart forts). It was the UN that passed the resolution mandating the foundation of the nation of Israel (the Brits abstained from the voting), and it was the Israelis who decided that they didn't want to stick with what they were originally given and murdered and displaced a couple of million Palestinians so that they could have the whole country.
In terms of lost Israeli lives, they're only reaping what they sowed. If they'd been a little more reasonable from the get-go and not so fanatical and brutal, the whole tragic mess could have been done and dusted yonks ago.
