    Who created Israel (new state)?

    Favorite Answer:

    Hello Certi,

    > > Primarily, modern Israel was re-established by the Jewish people.

    > > However what was the decisive factor which brought this about?

    The "Palestinian" Arabs (who mostly arrived in the land under the British Mandate as Foreign-Arab-Migrant-Workers - see below) sought to violently-oppose the United Nations Partition Plan of 1947 (under resolution 181) (a two-state solution), by attacking the then Palestinian Jewish Community, seeking to expel (or murder) them and take ALL the land. The Jews defended themselves and Israel became re-established (1948); that is, re-established within the Jewish ancestral homeland. Surrounding Arab countries then invaded but lost the war.

    > > What of the British?

    The British evacuated, upon which the Jewish people declared their independence.  

    > > Who were these Jews?

    > > The “Palestinian” Arabs falsely-allege Israeli Jews all came from Europe. Some Jews are returnee-exiles, since the Jewish People have Judah heritage (“Jew”=citizen of “Judah” - Judaism is both an ethnicity as well as a religion). Yet the Jewish People are native to their ancestral homeland of Israel, with unbroken presence there from Biblical times:

    (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographic_history_of_Palestine_(region)).

    > > Why then do we refer to a “Return” of some Jewish exiles? While there is unbroken Jewish presence in the land of Israel from Biblical times, some Jewish exiles wished to return to their ancestral homeland of Israel. The clue is in the name:

    “Jew” refers to the citizens of “Judah” (aka “Judea”) / Israel.

    > > Modern Israel is re-established within the Jewish ancestral homeland. The last indigenous sovereign state (that is, run by the natives rather than a foreign power) in what is now Israel (on which the name “Palestine” was imposed by Roman-occupiers), prior to the RE-establishment of Israel in 1948, was the post-Biblical Jewish Hasmonean Kingdom of Judah. It included the West Bank, Gaza, and Golan Heights, with its capital of (what is now EAST) Jerusalem / “Old City”; between 110 BCE / 754 BH and 63 BCE / 706 BH - Map:

    (gatestoneinstitute.org/11401/palestinian-people).

    > > Brief historical background:

    > > Using “Palestine” to negate the name Israel for the land is misleading, as there has never been any indigenous sovereign state of “Palestine”. The only valid name for the land belongs to the Jewish indigenous sovereign states before the Re-establishment of Israel in 1948: “Israel” or “Judah”.

    > > The Jewish people are the indigenous people of their ancestral homeland of Israel with unbroken presence there since Biblical times - see above.

    > > Israel is Re-established within the Jewish ancestral homeland. Post-Biblical Jewish Hasmonean Kingdom of Judah - see above.

    > > Another answer falsely-states:

    "America and Britain created the new nation state of Israel".

    My response:

    America and Britain did not create modern Israel; modern Israel was Re-established by the Jewish people, within their ancestral homeland.

    > > The same answer refers to "Palestine":

    My response:

    There has never been any indigenous "Palestine" / Arab sovereign state in the land of Israel.

    > > The same answer also falsely-states:

    "[...] the Muslim nation that existed where Israel exists today".

    My response:

    There was no such "Muslim nation". The "Palestinian" Arabs arrived in the land mostly under the British Mandate, as Foreign-Arab-Migrant-Workers - please see above.

    Under the British Mandate JEWISH citizens were Palestinian: Irrespective of race or religion citizens of the British Mandate were “Palestinian”: 

    Extracts from three British “Government of Palestine” passports,

    from which it can be seen that JEWISH citizens of the Mandate were “Palestinian”:

    Jewish people how do you feel about Israels large Arab minority?

    Arabs make up 20% of Israels national population and 35% of the population under age 18.

    they represent a major challenge to the Jewish state due to their perceived demographic threat.

    how should israel deal with the high birth rate among this different ethnic group?

    Why would a Jew blame Christianity for the Holocaust?

    Anyone who has studied this aspect of history will know that Adolf Hitler was not a Christian and that even if he was a Christian, the systematic extermination of six million Jews was not committed in the name of Christianity but Aryanism.

    How can Jews be considered Jewish by mother if their tribe is inherited by father? ?

    For example, a Levite is considered Levite if the father is a Levite. So, if someone has a Jewish mother and a Gentile father he is a Jew without Tribe? Can you Jews explain better how it works? I like Israel, I really do. But I find this fact contradictory.

    Why are the medias all over the worlds buzzing with the story that Israel is the world leader in COVID-19 vaccinations?

    Favorite Answer:

    Palestine has been forgotten about by the world press, but that is no surprise. 

    Israel is not living up to its obligation to vaccinate Palestinians as well, who are living under Israeli military occupation. It is medical apartheid. You are correct, BravoSierra.

    Do you agree with Bravo Sierra logic?

    Favorite Answer:

    I do not agree with the "logic" for the reasons I outlined in my response to that question.

    It is irrelevant to the question whether Hamas will or will not, at one point in the future, shoot missiles at Israel.

    What is relevant is what Israel is obligated to do.

    As is the case with anti Israel cranks, they actually do not care what Israel is or is not obligated to do. They are merely inventing an obligation *in this case* specifically for the purpose of the anti Israel talking point (tm). Why? Because that is what they do.

    I have no issues with Israel cooperating with the Palestinian Authority to help in this matter. But to bash Israel for not giving the vaccine to people who are not citizens less than a month after the vaccinations were deployed and where a 1st world Western country (Canada) has not vaccinated 99% of its population (including seniors) is quite frankly, ridiculous.

    If your Kurdish friend tells you that he doesn't understand why white people sympathize with Arabs, who committed genocide, what do you say?

    Favorite Answer:

    The Kurdish friend is likely unfamiliar with what a lot of people know or perceive in the West, which is why he or she doesn't understand. To them, their reality is that Arabs (or at least certain Arab-majority nations) can be oppressive and cruel; however, the world's viewpoint isn't limited to Arab-Kurdish relations.

    The perception most white people receive is informed more about how Arabs are treated here in the West, rather than on-ground realities in the Middle East. In the West, Arabs are a minority and can be discriminated against, so sympathies are given rather than scorn. Many people, including many whites, have a perception that Arabs are often discriminated against due to their ethnic or national origin, skin tone, and/or religion (a lot not realizing that some of these things may be shared by them too, as Arabs don't come in one uniform way). When they think Arabs, they're more likely to rely more on what they see at home rather than what happens abroad.

    And... that kind of viewpoint can paint how they see all Arabs, both those close to them and far away. Many displace their feelings of Arabs they see discriminated against at home onto Arabs who aren't discriminated against elsewhere. Despite being the majority of people in the Middle East, some people still talk about them as if they're minorities everywhere. I've at least seen it in regards to the Arab-Israeli conflict, where certain things said by armchair pundits only make sense if they think the situation is involving Arabs that live in the States.

    And it doesn't help that most white people are wholly ignorant of Middle Eastern demographics. As I've hinted up two paragraphs ago, most don't realize many Arabs pass as white (or are white, depending on who you ask) and are Christian. However, it's more than that: There is no knowledge of non-Arab minorities in the Middle East. Many don't know of ancient Jewish populations, or of the Assyrians, Copts, the Druze... and, of course, of the Kurds. It's hard to condemn Arabs when you simply don't know what Arab forces have done to a people you're unaware exists!

    Can Israelis agree that Judaism is the same as Aryanism?

    I do agree Nazism and Aryanism is racist. But so is Judaism. You can be proud of being German living in Germany, or Hebrew living in Israel.

    But Judaism like Aryanism sounds the same " Masterrace to rule people" they arent different from each other is what i mean?

    why is Israeli society not politically correct like we Americans are?

    Being called a racist in America is the same as being a child rapist.

    IN Israel if you are openly racist towards Arabs, you suffer no condemnation.

    to anyone reading this, why are the people of Israel opposed to political correctness and being civilized by rejecting racism?
