After centuries of suffering oppression in their home countries, I can understand the desire for a Jewish-majority state. However, in creating the state of Israel after the horrors of WW2 there was a big problem: there's already people living there. The Arabs got screwed over and got their land taken away from them. Two wrongs don't make a right.
 
Instead of creating Israel, the governments of Europe should've offered compensation in other forms. If there's any place to create a Jewish state, I believe that somewhere between Germany and Poland would be best because first of all alot of Jews lived there and secondly because it was the Germans' who began the Holocaust and through many decades they have accepted their guilt.

Actually there were proposals that were entirely amenable to the Jews in the post-war period that suggested Western Canada as a potential location. It was sparsely populated, had great resources, and it was a good spot to do trade from.

But Canada objected vociferously. Which was entirely unfortunate in hindsight - it would have been so simple, so easy.
 
Very interesting, I never knew that.
 
I for one wouldn't mind having a Jewish state in Western Canada, after all our country is dangerously underpopulated for such a huge piece of land Wink. But then again our PM at the time, William Lyon Mackenzie King, was an anti-Semite along with many Canadians at that time.

Actually Arabs/ Jordanians?/ Syrians still make up a considerable portion of Israels population! And they are voting members!

Again, it was Jordan who rejected / expelled, the so called Palestinians!

Why would the Jordanians want so many refugee's in there country? If the Mexicans were kicked out of Mexico, would the US take them in?

Palestinians as a seperate group existed before the creation of the country of Jordan, I find it amusing how you can deny their existence and simply call them Syrians and Jordanians.

Then, I would respectfully suggest Mere Simba, that you review any good history of the creation of Israel, and the "creation" of the so called "palestinians?"

It is you who have some problem understanding the old political climate that existed after WWII!

I hope one of our other "experts" will agree that my view is not a politically correct one, but the "correct" one!

Is anyone else up to the task?

I "Mere(ly)" responded!

Simply put, you're wrong and ignorant regarding the subject.

I wonder what ever happened to my great opponent "The Great Simba!" who certainly had a very high opinion of his/her self! Does anyone know?

I agree, but wouldn't it be great if Israel and Palestine could agree to live side by side in harmony.
 
I can see both sides of the argument and I agree with both sides on many points, but in the long term, Hamas must stop firing rockets into Israel and committing other provocative acts and Israel must take a much more liberal attitude towards Palestine.
 
I live in hope.

Not a clue.  He vanished without any word as to why.  I've long held a suspicion that he was one of the "Kid Mafia" from .net.  But just a suspicion, no real grounds for it.

*Creation of Israel on ancient Judea is just romantic nationalistic act same as taking Ottoman lands in Balkans for Turks or hoping a Greek Istanbul for Greeks. However there is a difference, they achieved.

*The pain of Palestinians reguees is similar with Holocoust and it is still hot.

Most of today's Israelians doesn't belongs those land, they were coming from abroad. Jews population of those land was less then 10%

so I am looking Swizerland election about immigration and their effort to stop it or Canada, they have just changed their laws to make difficult the being citizen.

but Palestians didn't have a choice or nobody asked them.
