There's so many people writing complete rubbish in this threat I don't know where to begin.
First, the Romans renamed Judea "Palestina" after they drove Jews out after the Jewish War
and didn't let Jews resettle in Judea. Arabic doesn't even have a "p" so they can't
even say "Palestina" they say "Filestina".
Second, "gravitational said
I love Israel and it's peoples.
However, on the topic, was the creation of Israel peaceful?
I heard it was bombed into existence by Zionist terrosist groups, who killed Palestinians before 1948"
They drove the British occupiers out. All the Jewish terrorist actions (of which there were only about 2) where aimed at the British Military not the
"Palestinians" a term which referred to Jews then as Arabs called themselves Syrians. Most of the "Arab" population actually spoke Aramaic until
the 20th century so can't really be described as "Arabs" anyway. Palestinians are a clan based society so its relatively easy to to determine their
origins, most are Jews and Samaritans forceably converted to Islam under the Turkish occupation which an Arab Muslim Elite ruling class.
"Asktheanimals" said "My question is why create a state for one particular religion? Israel is the only such state created in modern times." but
actually this is untrue. Pakistan and Bangladesh were created for Muslims are exactly the same time by carving out India.
People need to delve a little deeper.
