    Simple poll on Palestine - Does Palestine have a "right to 'exist'"? Whatever that means.

    There is no such entity. Never has been, except as a function of British rule after World War I.

    Do the people have a right to exist, sure do. However they do NOT have the right to murder Jews nor to demand a return to Israel. As for a country? Israel has tried repeatedly from 2000 on to create such a nation. And the response from the Arabs? More murder and terrorism.

    The Israelis all agree those Arabs have a right to their own Country and to live in it peacefully. However that is NOT what they are doing. And as for the Arabs, they refuse to even acknowledge the right of the Jews to live in the Middle East, much less Israel.

    Clean up your question so that it is clear what you are asking.

    Ohh wait, I forgot, you are a Jew hater. Never mind.

    That's like asking if the Jutland Peninsula has the right to exist. The gunny asked in his thread of the NATION of Israel had the right to exist.

    Yeah, well, exactly. Does the NATION of Palestine has a right to exist? DOES the Jutland pensinsula, in fact, have a right to exist? It IS afterall, governed by a separate entity that does not claim possesion of the rest of Somalia. Did Slovakia or the Czech republic have "right" to exist in 1950? 1970? 1992? Or was it just in 1993 that they gained the "right" to exist? What constitutes this "right to exist" and who gives it?

    The fact is there are a particular group of people who claim to be "Israelis", who claim to live in a place called "Israel." If this is the requirement for a "right to exist", if there IS, in FACT, a group that identifies itself as PALESTINIAN, who claim to live in a place they themselves call "PALESTINE", why does one hold less a right to exist than the other?

    Says who? Says YOU? You probably don't even know what "nation" means, dude. Once again, I'll have to educate you in elementary matters: According to the New Oxford American Dictionary:

    The Jutland Peninsula is the part of Europe that is occupied by Denmark and to a smaller extent, Germany and has nothing to do with Somalia.
    I can say that Czechoslovakia had the right to exist in all three of those years listed. She should have been free to set up her own government after World War II. I don't know the history of the two nations, so I don't know if they should have broken apart or not.
    Speaking of World War II, should Austria have been forced to separate from Germany after the war was over?
    Should Imperial Germany have been forced to give up the Danzig corridor after World War I?
