However, from an Objectivist point of view, was the expulsion of arabs during the war of independence moral, ethical or justifiable? During the war, many individual arabs were kicked off of their land and their property seized - can this be justified? Do they have a right of return? Is there any justification for Israel retaining Judea-Samaria (West Bank)?

Thinking about it, I guess I was also operating under the mistaken premise that Israel had declared independence from a free, civilised, rights-protecting state, when in reality, there was no real state to speak of, just the dismantling British Mandate govt and they had to declare independence to protect themselves and establish a civilised, rights-protecting country.
