The REAL ISSUE is not right of return or land for peace

The real question should be, "why is it that Israel has absorbed and given citizenship to more than 600,000 refugees who were CHASED OUT of ALL the Arab countries, but all the Arab countries will NOT ALLOW citizenship to any displaced, so called, "Palestinian?" The reason is that 1. the "Palestinian" issue distracts attention away from the internal problems the Arab countries are always having. 2. It gives the Arab countries someone to blame (Israel) for everything that happens in the Middle East. 3. Holding the "Palestinians" hostage or as their pawns, the Arab countries can always blame Israel for the "Palestinian problem". Why is it that no country wants these people? Israelis do not blow up planes, cars and shopping centers. They only DEFEND THEIR COUNTRY and PROTECT their people. Jews are NOT fighters, except in SELF DEFENSE. As the only Democracy in the Middle East, Israel allows people of ALL FAITHS to attend their universities, become doctors, lawyers, teachers - whatever they desire. They can even become members of the Kenesset. Could a Jew or Christian do this in any Muslim country? When a Muslim leader needs a doctor, where do they turn first? To Israel and their Jewish doctors and sometimes to America and their Jewish doctors. Netanyahu was correct when he said, "It is our land". Those willing to live in peace in Israel, live happy, productive lives. Those NOT willing to live in peace and allow the "Jewish State" to exist, will be fought off and pushed back until they either change their minds or are gone. Consider all the innovations that have come out of Israel. Where would you all be without your cell phone, Pentium computers, pharmaceuticals, security systems, etc.
