Also there are many factual reasons why israel belongs to the jews, lets take a trip down memory lane shall we.
1. Israel has the right to the land because of all of the archeological evidence. All the archeological evidence supports it.
2. Israel's right to the land is the historic right. History supports that fact totally and completely. We know there has been a Israel up until the
time of the Roman Empire. The Romans conquered the land. Israel had no homeland, although Jews were allowed to live there.
3. The homeland that Britain said it would set aside consisted of all of what is now Israel and all of what was then the nation of Jordan (the whole
thing). That is what Britain promised to give the Jews in 1917.
4. There was not a huge Arab population in the land at that time, and there is fundumental reason for that. The land was not able to sustain a large
population. It just simply did not have the development that it needed to handle it, and the land was not really wanted by anybody. Nobody really
wanted this land. It was considered to be worthless land.
5. Mark Twain--Samuel Clemens--took a tour of Palestine in 1867. This is how he described that land. We are talking about Israel now. He said: A
desolate country whose soil is rich enough but is given over wholly to weeds. A silent, mournful expanse. We never saw a human being on the whole
route. There was hardly a tree or a shrub anywhere. Even the olive and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil, had almost deserted the
6. Where was this great Palestinian nation? It did not exist. It was not there. Palestinians were not there. Palestine was a region named by the
Romans, but at that time it was under the control of Turkey, and there was no large mass of people there because the land would not support them.
7. This is the report that the Palestinian Royal Commission, created by the British, made. It quotes an account of the conditions on the coastal plain
along the Mediterranean Sea in 1913. This is the Palestinian Royal Commission. They said:
The road leading from Gaza to the north was only a summer track, suitable for transport by camels or carts. No orange groves, orchards or vineyards
were to be seen until one reached the Yavnev village. Houses were mud. Schools did not exist. The western part toward the sea was almost a desert. The
villages in this area were few and thinly populated. Many villages were deserted by their inhabitants. That was 1913.
8. The French author Voltaire described Palestine as ``a hopeless, dreary place.''
In short, under the Turks the land suffered from neglect and low population. That is a historic fact. The nation became populated by both Jews and
Arabs because the land came to prosper when Jews came back and began to reclaim it. Historically, they began to reclaim it. If there had never been
any archaeological evidence to support the rights of the Israelis to the territory, it is also important to recognize that other nations in the area
have no longstanding claim to there countrys either.
9. And finally the reason I believe Israel has the right to the land is on the grounds of humanitarian concern. You see, there were 6 million Jews
slaughtered in Europe in World War II. The persecution against the Jews had been very strong in Russia since the advent of communism. It was against
them even before then under the Czars. These people have a right to their homeland. If we are not going to allow them a homeland in the Middle East,
then where? What other nation on Earth is going to cede territory, is going to give up land?
They are not asking for a great deal. The whole nation of Israel would fit into the State of Oklahoma seven times. It would fit into the State of
Georgia seven times. They are not asking for a great deal. The whole nation of Israel is very small. It is a nation that, up until the time that
claims started coming in, was not desired by anybody.
