    Why would jews have to leave Gaza?  The settlements were not on land that had any housing previously?  Why not invite them to stay, and apply for citizenship in GAZA?

    OK, stop laughing....

    Your comment "The fact is dozens of massacres of arabs occured, where everyone in the village was killed"-- NOT A FACT, it is opinion, and considered a MYTH.

    Nasser said: "...the full restoration of the rights of the Palestinian people. In other words, we aim at the destruction of the State of Israel. The immediate aim: perfection of Arab military might. The national aim: the eradication of Israel."--
    Samuel Katz, Battleground-Fact and Fantasy in Palestine, (NY: Bantam Books, 1985), pp. 10-11, 185.

    He stated this often, and to anyone who would listen.  It is not a MYTH, it is a fact.

    Nasser ordered the UN Emergency Force, stationed in the Sinai since 1956, to withdraw on May 16. Without bringing the matter to the attention of the General Assembly, as his predecessor had promised, Secretary-General U Thant complied with the demand. After the withdrawal of the UNEF, the Voice of the Arabs proclaimed (May 18, 1967):

    As of today, there no longer exists an international emergency force to protect Israel. We shall exercise patience no more. We shall not complain any more to the UN about Israel. The sole method we shall apply against Israel is total war, which will result in the extermination of Zionist existence.

    Isi Leibler, The Case For Israel, (Australia: The Globe Press, 1972), p. 60.

    Nasser did a lot to set up a war.  However the casus belli was on May 22, Egypt closed the Straits of Tiran to all Israeli shipping and all ships bound for Eilat.   You can't hid that FACT, you cannot mistake it it for anything except a threat.

    I could go on, but your stuff is just filled with stating myths as fact...  I am finished with you.
