You mean the 40 years during the first 35 of which Palestinians had complete freedom of movement throughout Israel; when 250,000 Palestinians had regular jobs in Israel raising their living standards higher than any non-oil producing Arab country; when Israel extended its hand in peace allowing a terrorist and his organization to gain international recognition in exchange for the promise of peace.

The Palestinians were oppressed the whole time. They had no political rights, their land was being taken left and right, their economic development was purposefully undermined so as not to grow competition to domestic Israeli industries and in order to keep them as cheap labor.
I don't think Israel spent much on the school system in the occupied territories either, that was left to organizations such as Hamas.

It's the total refusal of the Palestinians to live in peace with Jews, before 1948 and after, before 1967 and after, and to this day, that is the root cause of the conflict.

Why do the Palestinians refuse to do this in contrast to their brethren that are now Israeli Arabs? Don't you think maybe this has something to do with the completely different treatment those two groups got from Israel?
