The vast majority of land which was partitioned for the Jews was Jewish or Crown owned. Land which belonged to Arabs should have been allowed to remain in Arab hands and probably would have had it not been for the war perpetrated against the nascent Jewish state by the surrounding Arab states with a great deal of support from the Arabs who today call themselves Palestinians.
