Every statement you made is factually wrong.
The history of the conflict has been as bitterly contested as the conflict itself. Unfortunately, the truth has not been told in the west. The Zionist version of events has prevailed, and it is based on lies.
Sorry, but this is the case.
To take just one of your statements -- that the Jews were given less land. Nonsense. In 1947 -- even though Jews made up a small percentage of the total population compared with the Palestinians -- they were given over half the land.
This was the UN partition plan. Nor did the land belong to the UN to give away. They had no right to do so. The native people were never even consulted about the expropriation of their own country.
Not that the Zionists had any intention of abiding by the partition. Their plan from the start was to take all of Palestine for themselves. This is exactly what they did -- though they did not finish the project until June 1967.
I suggest you do some serious reading. One excellent summary is THE GUN AND THE OLIVE BRANCH by David Hirst. Fine book.
