That is to be expected because the last two invader were Muslim. The question arises, where they Palestinians? The answer is no. The Muslims were either farmers that leased the lands or nomads coming in to graze.
That does not nullify the League of Nations Mandate for Palestine or that the vast majority were allowed in by the British contrary to that mandate, not unlike the illegal immigrants in the USA. The UN designated a refugee as anyonr residing in Palestine between 1946-1948.
Israel is precisely as strong as the US makes it. Without American military and political support they would have been overrun years ago. Well, that and their cache of illegally-developed nuclear weapons. You know, those nice “moral” nukes required to protect them from an assemblage of states which don’t have any. And whom they routinely attack and bomb unilaterally each time one of them attempts to achieve parity.
And before you go off about how Israel is not a signatory to the NPT, and is not obligated to abide by its’ constraints, I should remind you of the subterfuge they used at Dimona to prevent international inspectors from discovering their enrichment and plutonium production programs. All nicely detailed by Mordechai Vanunu, the guy Israel STILL has under their thumb for spilling their little secret. Subterfuge and hiding things from international inspectors is pretty much a tacit admission they knew they were doing something wrong. But I suppose using the “anybody shoots at me and I kill everyone in the room” defense makes sense when you have no moral ground on which to stand. Just as the US doesn’t, which is why they are natural parters – “fascists of a feather”, if you will.
Almost all of the people here posting anti-Israel opinions are pounced on and labeled “Jew-haters”, when they are in fact “Fascist-haters”. There IS a difference, you know, and it’s rooted entirely in the Israeli gov’ts continuing treatment of the Palestinians since the (also illegal) inception of their nation-state. I refer you to wg’s initial comments to Plainspeaker above as an excellent example. Bur certainly not the first example I’ve seen.
