What about the precedent that the zionist ideology in Palestine sets for the rest of the world?

    I'm not trying to be funny, but seriously now. If I understand the zionist position, it boils down to might is right - or might makes right. But, there is also the idea that if a people were somewhere in ancient times, that they still retain rights to that land. I am constantly reminded about a peoples' right to self-determination in their ancestral homeland. Am I okay so far?

    Good.

    Now, since we came from Asia, across the Bering Straight, would this ideology not give Americans the right to demolish homes in Asia today, demolish entire cities even? Can we go on to murder and expel those living there today? If any remain, can we imprison them behind walls? Can we use our military to enforce a new government upon them based on our laws, in our cities built where theirs just stood?

    I think it is important to see what a dangerous precedent this sets for people the world over.

    Oh, and if a small group of Americans came up with scrolls, claimed they were from God and that they were His chosen people, and He told them that they would be returned to their ancestral homeland, would that help or hurt the argument?

    The Zionists:

    1. Have ancient roots in the land with the center being the Temple Mount.
    2. Have been given the land via the UN.
    3. Have fought for the land after the land was given to them and won.
    4. Have been persecuted for centuries abroad in other lands that climaxed with the Holocaust.

    I can't really come up with any more reasons why a people should stake a claim to a piece of land than that.

    They are as legitimate as they come.

    There has always been a Jewish remnant in Israel and the rest simply came home because they were hunted like dogs everywhere else.

    As I just had to explain to Shusha, Hebrew was not even spoken there for centuries.

    7) After Not Being Spoken for Two Millennia, It Was Dramatically Revived.

    Hebrew had not been a spoken language for two millennia...
