There has been an understanding among a number of Arab governments which stated that the first objective was to force Israel through world pressure to return all the lands lost by three of these countries resulting from the Six Day War in June of 1967. The initial efforts to have Israel required to return these lands failed as the Israelis resisted and at that time still had the support of much of the world, particularly the Western World. The main contributing factor to the support Israel was receiving was due to the perception that the Arab Israeli conflict was perceived accurately as one tiny little country, Israel, standing against Syria, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Arab World. The statements and propaganda emanating from the Arab World supported the concept that Israel was fighting against almost unimaginable odds facing a coordinated attack supported by countries with tens, if not hundreds or even thousands, of times sized militaries, tanks, planes, troops, helicopters, trucks, rifles, artillery, mortars and every other imaginable military equipment and other essentials. The solution to this problem was to find some manner of changing the equation on the ground, but how to shrink the Arab forces and make Israel to appear as the military giant instead of the outmanned and outgunned small country in a sea of enemies. There was a solution and it was to invent a group and isolate them from the rest of the Arab World and recast the representation of the two adversaries replacing the overwhelming Arab forces with a small and virtually defenseless and powerless group of Arabs with no military and no resources and cast Israel as an oppressor. This was what brought on the invention of the Palestinians as the indigenous people from whom the Israelis had stolen their lands and forced them into refugee camps where they languished under the most inhuman conditions.
