No one is that dumb: 2002 Saudi Peace Initiative as adopted by Beirut Arab Summit [right of return]

First it was the Germans who dictated to us, and now for more than 60 years its the Arabs. This ugly document keeps resurfacing lately. Who are the Arabs to dictate to Jews who we are, where we should live, what our borders are, what offends us, and where we belong? Arabs overestimate their importance. Israel does not need to prove anything to the Arab world. Arab Palestinians not only have no right to Israel, but only live there because Israeli Jewish leaders lack both courage and piety. There is no law on earth that requires the Jewish people to accept the revision of their history nor their own demise merely because Arabs say we should. Arabs deceive the world and pretend that if Israel went back to pre 1967 borders there would be peace. But what happened in 1967 that caused the borders to change? Did Israel just decide they wanted more land or was Israel attacked, for the seventh time, by warmongering Arabs?

I've said it before and I'll keep saying it: unlike the political Arabian Nation, the Zionist movement to Palestine/the Land of Israel represents a return, not an invasion. It is the Palestinian rejection of Israel's right to exist and not Israeli policies that are the cause of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. It is not citizenship that the Palestinians want, nor do they want their own nation; instead they esteem a reactionary vision that would erase the "Nakba," the "Catastrophe," of Israel's creation by eliminating the Jewish state. I have solidified my belief that the only way for peace is that one side must go. A two-nation solution is mere mythology.

Besides, who decides what land is "Palestinian land", the international community? If so, they have tried before. The Arabs were offered land and refused their offer in 1948 and attacked Israel in a pre-meditated war of barbaric aggression. Arabs chose war. Arabs suffer the consequences. Why should any people who have attacked a legitimate and sovereign nation, instead of negotiating, be deserving of the victor's consideration at all? There would be no issue today, if Arabs had been willing to share the land.

Tell me the truth, folks, if the combined Arab states had won that war in 1948, would they have benevolently pulled back so Jews could build a state? No one is that dumb.
