Maybe A Yaron London Approach is the Root Cause?

Yaron London had this to expouse in his Ynet column:-

Had we not driven out the Arabs who had settled in the Land of Israel, we would not have been able to build a stable country for the Jewish people, however, that's how we created the Palestinian exile, which is the root cause of our problems.

But Mr. London, what drove the Arabs to oppose the Balfour Declaration, the League of Nations Mandate, the peace plans of various 'goodie-goodies' like Brit Shalom and Magnes, acquiesence by Zionist leaders in partition plans, etc.? And all this before the state was establishmed and "we drove them out".

Are you aware of your history?

Maybe the Arab hostility to the idea of a Jewish political entity anywhere in the Middle East may be the real root cause of our problem?
