It's a valid argument as the international community agreed on it.

And the Jews waged an insurgency against the British when the entire territory, inclusive of the land settled by the Arabs and the Jews, was going to be given independence as Palestine. There's nothing revisionist about it.

Ethnic cleansing leads to reprisal attacks. Reprisals lead to clearing more land on the need (or pretext) to create a security buffer for civilians. The occupying force gains more land over the long run so long as they have more power. If it's a stalemate or the one group has all the land it feels it needs, we have something like Iraq where there's attempts to recover lost land by the smaller group.

You are completely detached from Reality. There is no "ethnic cleansing".

Just total nonsense.

A treaty is only valid when accepted by both sides. By refusing the treaty and starting war instead, the Arabs effectively destroyed the UN treaty and started from scratch. In the end, they got less territory than they would've had they accepted it. The Israel borders after the end of 1948 war are accepted as legal by the UN and internationally.

And the only ethnic cleansing was done by the Arabs. There are no Jews remaining in Arab countries, yet a large number of Arab Israelis living in Israel.

The modern Arab nationalists are no freedom fighters, they are the Nazis.

No. No it doesn't.
Different continent, different century, different circumstances, different issues, different subjects, different topic.

And it doesn't justify terrorism.

United Nations Resolution 181 | Palestinian history | Britannica.com

"The resolution—which was considered by the Jewish community in Palestine to be a legal basis for the establishment of Israel, and which was rejected by the Arab community—was succeeded almost immediately by violence."
You can not make it up with these people, just lol

How would you feel if a group of Native Americans went into LA or Chicago and started gunning down random people at a market?

As long as we're blabbering on about false equivalences...

Screw all this crap about politics. Innocent civilians were murdered. The murders ought to be executed.
