The point abt Jewish people having more festivals and important landmarks? How can that be used 2 justify they have more right to live in Israel. Personally i think its a rubbish point! What is ur opinion on this view? Compared to Israeli support what do the Palestinains receive? The Jewish view on this is that Palestian has support from nine African countries one being Sudan??:S
That is ludicrous to say the least.
Before the illegal state of Israel was created, the Zionists commited massacres in order to cite the Palestinians:
King David Massacre (1946)
Massacre at Baldat al-Shaikh (1947)
YEHIDA Massacre (1947)
KHISAS Massacre (1947)
QAZAZA Massacre (1947)
The Semiramis Hotel Massacre (1948)
Massacre at Dair Yasin (1948)
NASER AL-DIN Massacre (1948)
TANTURA Massacre (1948)
BEIT DARAS Massacre (1948)
DAHMASH MOSQUE Massacre (1948)
DAWAYMA Massacre (1948)
HOULA Massacre (1948)
Salha Massacre (1948)
Remember, these are between '46 and '48. I haven't listed the pre-1946 and post 1948 massacres.
As for the Partition Plan (the plan to divide Palestine) proposed in '47, the Palestinians rejected it because it was unfair.
The Partition Plan granted the Jews 55% of Palestine who at that time only comprised comprised only 28-30 percent of the population and only owned 6 percent of the land whilst the Palestinians owned the rest of the land. Furthermore, the Jews were allocated territory that included the coastal plain stretching from Akka to Ashdod and other fertile lands, while the Palestinians, who were mainly an agricultural people, were left with mountainous and arid regions.
Once the Israeli State was created (by force), the Palestinians were forced to flee from their homes whilst some of them were pushed in to the sea. This happend when Palestinians were driven into the sea at Jaffa late in April 1948. With land routes cut off by Zionist forces, tens of thousands from the Palestinian city of Jaffa and neighbouring villages fled by boat to Gaza and Egypt; scores were drowned.
In the late eighties, the Palestinians got tired of this conflict and have tried all possible means to get their land back so they reconigzed Israel's right to exist in '88 and re-iterated in '93 while Israel still failes to explicitly and formally recognize Palestine's right to exist.
The Camp David (in 2000) proposal again was an unfair proposal and in spite of that, the Palestinians still acted in good faith and pursued negotiations in order to reach a solution. However, Sharon after winnin' the election disconnected the negotiations and started the second intifada.
Unless Israel fully reconigzes the Palestine's right to exist, there will never be a solution.
Palestinians have acted in good faith for the last 50 years but Israel still continues to offer sham proposals.

If they had patience and never despaired of Allaah's Mercy, surely Allaah would have helped them.
“Do not despair of Allah's mercy.”
“And surely We shall try you with something of fear and hunger, and loss of wealth and lives and crops; but give glad tidings to the steadfast, who say, when a misfortune striketh them: Lo! To Allah we belong and unto Him we are returning.”
But in the end, Allaah knows best.
