I'll make this short and sweet: "Palestine" has never been a country in history. The land was part of the ottoman empire up until they lost the first World War. This land was Given to the English who recreated the State of Israel for the Jews. Israel's existence throughout history is 100% supported my history, digs, and other archaeology. Israel got the Gaza strip/ West Bank after a war waged by the other Arab nations I might add. Israel took it in self defense due to the fact that the other Arab nations were launching missiles into Israel on these areas.If pro-Palestinian advocates use their same logic that Israel is occupying Israel, why aren't they protesting Jordan? Under their logic, "Palestine" is also occupying the area.

I agree. What you don't realize is that Israel is the freest state in the middle east. It is the ONLY state in the Middle east where Christians Muslims and Jews can all vote. The 'Palestinians' living in Israel are the freest and have the most rights compared to ANY other countries in the Middle east.

With that said? Why do you believe Palestine should become a country? And what will become of Israel?

any way you put it, the jews booted the Palestinians out of Palestine, and took it for themselves. they had no right to do that. i love how the jews complain about how they were booted out of germany, and now theyre doing the same thing to the Palestinians. thats why i never take this "antisemitism" garbage seriously
