And land of Israel is now Jewish because UN partitioned British province of Palestine in 1947.
I keep looking for any historical records that indicate that the jews came from that land...
For from what I can see, Jewish claims of that land being Jewish are based on the presumption of Jewish settlements predating other settlements,
I am 100 percent sure that your opinion about Israel would not change even if Holocaust is downplayed and it was much much worse, for example. So what is the point to connect one to another?
Blame is on those who commited the crime.
I see nobody saying that Palestinians are guilty in Holocaust. Nazis and their ideology are blamed, but we are clear that we are not its sympathizers already, so who blames you personally?
No sane person would argue with you that Jews were not the first there. And no sane individual would be able to tell you who exactly was first there.
Open your own and i would gladly be a part of your Israeli bashing. Or a counterpart.
Why is questioning the holocaust a crime in Germany?
"Why do Jewish peoples (Israel Government) claim more land than was mandated by the 1947 UN charter"
I am not citizen of Germany, however my guess is that it is part of fighting Neo-Nazi groups who try to downplay the Holocaust and return to mainstream politics. You should ask this from German government/law officials though.
War. There was a war in 1948 and as a result there was no second (after Jordan) Palestinian state. Parts of it were taken by Israel, parts by Jordan,parts by Egypt. And since in 1948 no Arab nation was willing to accpet Israeli existence in any borders, there was no reason (and no will too) to give the captured land back. Then in 1967 war even more territory was taken and due to the nature of the victory general approach of Israeli public and leaders was pretty much "we are the greatest/toughest/coolest so we deserve all we got". International politics were nore problematic so thus the term "occupied territories" was born. Israeli leadership (and public) did not want to release it and could not annex it due to international pressure. Thus Palestinians on occupied territories did not recieve Israeli citizenship even though some wanted in the beginning. Then after the 1973 war there was a realisation of problems due to hostile neighbours everywhere and principle land for peace was born. The reason why it worked with Egypt and not with Palestinians is not mainly borders. It is about refugees question and to lesser extent Jerusalem. By the way, nobody speaks about 1948 borders since almost half of Israeli population lives beyond those borders.
