I find it fascinating that you would make the statement "You cannot ignore the fact of the existence of a people" when Hamas exists, if for no other reason, to deny Israelis their existence.(Read the Hamas Charter)<quoted text>
British plans bear no weight in this.
Do you mean that it was realistic on their part to suggest a population tranferance so that the unrealistic maps you people keep showing become livable reality?
Then again Colonial Britain is known to leaving a political havoc from wherever it withdrew in the World.British Sociology is full of such analyses.
I cannot imagine anyone on Earth accepting a decision such as that one and which means having to become exile from your land and private property so that someone who just arrived can get in!!!
All of Israeli behaviour based on that British plan shows political frivolty,stupidity and cynicism.You cannot ignore the fact of the existence of a people!!!!!!!!!
Only fools would have done a thing like that and dare call it their national policy.
Palestinians chose to have Hamas represent them knowing full well what it's goals are. Israel gives Gaza back to the Palestinians which of course means Hamas and what is the result? They have a new location from which to launch rockets at Israel. Now you people have the audacity to look surprised and shocked. Unbelievable!
