The Palestinians Still Want to Perpetrate a Nakba Against the Jews

Ever since the inception of Zionism in the late 19th century have Palestinians wanted to ethnically cleanse the land of Israel from Jews. in 1947 did the Palestinian movement start a war against the Yishuv (the Jewish community in the land of Israel) with the explicit purpose of evicting the Jews from their homes and deporting the Jews from the land. It is entirely unclear to where the Jews would have been deported had they been defeated so the presumable outcome would would have been genocide. 

Palestinians complain bitterly of the fate of the 700 000 Palestinians displaced in 1947-49 in a war which they started to displace the 600 000 Jews of the Yishuv. Yet even today there is a unanimous Palestinian consensus about the need to perpetrate a Nakba against the 600 000 Jews of East Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. There is simply no shame – at the same time as Palestinians complain about their tragic historical displacement, do they hypocritically demand displacement of Jews in almost equal numbers. But this is not enough for most Palestinians who want to deport seven million Israeli Jews from Israel as well. It is as if nothing has changed since the very inception of Zionism. Yet, there is still no alternative to peaceful coexistence between the peoples and that is only possible under Jewish statehood despite this abyss of baseless hatred.
