Simple poll on Israel . Does Israel have the right to exist?
There are no 'rights' beyond what one can convince others to agree to. Isra-El, like all nations, has a 'right' to exist so long as they can ensure their own existence. However, if they wished to declare sovereign nation, they should have done so. The real question here is whether the US and Western European powers, wishing to get rid of the Jews, had a 'right' to declare the existence of another nation and promote the displacement of native peoples.
You are a blathering idiot. The JEWS chose to go to Israel. The Jews chose to create a homeland. The Jews bought land for that purpose and they BEGGED the Arabs living in the area allotted the Jews by the League of Nations and supported by the United Nations to stay and create a country with them. The Arabs also were given a MUCH larger section of that land to create a nation, one that cut the Jews Nation into small parts. The Arabs refused. Why you ask?
Because the Arab Nations that already existed intended to seize that land and divide it up amongst themselves. They amazed armies and threatened any Arab that remained in Israel that they would be killed as traitors by the invading Arab armies intent on wiping out the Jews.
The United States and other Nations did nothing more then recognize the right of Israel to exist. As they would have recognized a new Arab State to exist. The British even were confiscating arms and munitions from the Jews right up to the day they left the region. The Jews bought their own weapons and converted bus's and trucks to armored vehicles.
I am always amazed at the pure IGNORANCE of those that hate Israel.
You do not even have the balls to vote in the poll. What's wrong? We can see what you pick?
of course they do
"We" must be a privledged few? lol or the majority, whatever
yes, jen, EVERYONE can see the results of a public poll
If "Israel" means the state of Israel as it presently exists, then my answer is no.
If you're asking whether I think Jews and all other types of people have the right to live in Palestine under a secular and democratic government, my answer is yes.
