I noticed that very same thing when I began doing the history, Since the beginning
of time it seems, or at least since the beginning of recorded hisoty, they've been shunned, tossed out, evicted, expelled, from practically every single place on earth.
But they survived and now have their own little country from which every
other country in the middle east would like to see them tossed out of.
