The problem with your assertion, friend, is that if Zionists wanted to "throw the Palestinians to the sea", why did they agree to legalize (by giving citizenship to) those "The cause of the war is Zionists wanting to throw the Palestinians to the sea and take the land as theirs and they were partially successful... Spare us the UN partition hogwash, your audience here is far too informed for that.
Do not forget that in that war of aggression, Zionists were in the defensive and their plan was well-known -- to establish their own state. That means, if the Arabs failed in their war of aggression, as a consequence of that war a new Jewish state will emerge. They must have known all of this, of course, and decided that their best course of action to take was to launch a war. They failed and a new Jewish state emerged. The people who fled that war and who were outside the boundaries of the new state at the conclusion of the war became what you call "Palestinian refugees".
You and your "too informed" audience want to absolve the aggressors from responsibility for the consequences their actions have caused.
That's history, folks. You may not like it but you can't change it. What you can change is the present, and by that the future.
Israel will never accept any "Palestinian" refugee to return to Israel. If you're waiting for that to happen in order to sign peace with Israel, then you are not serious about pursuing peace. Hizbullah uses this excuse because they want to keep the raison d'être for their weapons, and because hating Jews sells unsurprisingly well with Islamist audience. What's your excuse?
The ceasefire will not last forever and soon it will be your cities being turned into rubble, which is a huge service to Hizbullah propaganda machine but nevertheless important for the security of Israel. Only a peace treaty will prevent that from happening -- not Hizbullah or a 1,000 terrorist organizations like it, not the Lebanese army, and certainly not a ceasefire.
You have historical precedent -- how many times did Israel attack Jordan or Egypt after the peace treaties? In face of this precedent, why are you willingly fooled by Hizbullah into believing Israel will commit acts of aggression against Lebanon when Lebanon signs a peace treaty with Israel and when Hizbullah hands all of its weapons to the Lebanese army?
