Palestinians accept the Jewish right to national self-determination.

On May 15, 2018, Palestinians will commemorate the 70th anniversary of “al-Nakba,” marking “the catastrophe” of Israel’s creation in 1948. Palestinians are understandably bitter about their national history over the last seven decades, but if the Palestinians and the Arab states had accepted the United Nations partition resolution in 1947, the State of Palestine would instead be celebrating its 70th birthday alongside Israel.

We are often told that Palestinian intransigence in the peace process is because they object to the “occupation” of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, which Israel captured in the Six Day War of 1967. But if this is true, then why is “Nakba Day“ celebrated on the date that Israel gained independence in 1948 rather than in June on the anniversary of the Arab defeat in the Six Day War?

In addition, why is Hamas instigating violence along the Gaza border while demanding an end to Israeli “occupation” and the “right” of five million Palestinian refugees to overrun Israel?

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
