A text book approved by the israeli government (even if jUst for Arab schools) accepts some previously disputed facts, for example ""some of the Palestinians were expelled following the War of Independence and that many Arab-owned lands were confiscated".

Interesting development?

Sort of interesting, I guess, but so what? Did the Israelis instigate the conflict? NO!
"On May 15, one day after the creation of the State of Israel, the Arab armies of Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Lebanon invaded the new Jewish state. The Arab forces were significantly larger than Israel's and were better equipped. Yet, coordination and organization were lacking and the Arab armies were often at odds with each other, seeking to incorporate territory from Palestine into their own states. Despite their small numbers, the Jews were well-organized, well-disciplined and well-trained."

Of course the israelis initiated the conflict - the creation of israel itself did so.

Edit, though that's a whole different debate, and not the point of my original post.

The arabs initiated the conflict when they attacked Israel. That is the root of the problem. Blaming the country that gets attacked makes as much sense as blaming a rape victim.

A positive one, but why only for Arab schools?

I think they did. Hitler's plan to wipe them out failed.

They didn't adapt, they were helped by a vast majority of non-Jewish.

Likewise, there are many non-muslims helping the Palestinians and their cause. It does not seem to beworking.

Took the Israelis nearly 2000 years to get themselves sorted out, you could cut the Palestinians a little slack.

As you mention that, I think the Bible predicted that the Jews would have to leave Palestine and would be scattered all over the world. It also predicted that in the latter days they would return to claim the land back. Is'nt that lending some credibility to the Bible ?

The Arab world chose to attack Israel rather than work for any peaceful solutions. No one is ever going to be 100% happy with the creation of a new country but the attacking of Israel, the sending rockets into settlements, the PLOs bombing of school busses, the use of suiside bombers and the eventual support of such "humane" activity as 9/11 make me confident that the Arab world contribution to the peace process is slightly lacking

A related question is how do Palestinian school textbooks compare?
Are they truthful or are they instruments of propaganda ?
