    Do you believe the state of Israel should exist?

    One side believes that the Jews need a homeland free from persecution and fear, and that they deserve control over their ancestral homeland and historical holy land. Another side believes that the U.S. and Europe trampled on the rights of Palestinian Arabs in the creation of this country. Mixed in is the fact that this land contains space that is sacred to members of 3 religions that do not all have the best history of getting along. Anyone care to comment?

    It never belonged to the Jews, let's be honest for once. They existed through the bible and the torah which are not historical books, and  therefore can't be references for any argumentations. After the second world war, facing all the Jews who suffered in the camps, the English proposed to  the zionists two virgin territories, Argentina and Palestine (not very populated), they picked Palestine for religious reasons.
    Where were they during the crusades? Who did stand up against Godfrey of Bouillon or Renaud of Chatillon or Salah-ed-Din? Two religions were clashing with each other christianity and islam.
    Palestine comes from Palaistine (Greek), Palaestina (Latine) derived from Filastin  (Arabic) that alluded to a shell abundantly found on its shores.
    Since it does exist, we can't erase it. It has to make concessions.

    100 %. this doesn't mean i agree with every thing they do but they have just as much right to have land as everyone else.

    I think a Nation should exist there, with Jerusalem as its capitol, but i Heavily dislike the ZIonist nazis who control Isreal.   I think the name should be Judea as it was back in time of Christ. Or maybe simply Palestine. The flag needs to be changed as well, as the star of David on the Isreali Flag is not really the star of David, but rather the star of Babylon and satan. Research that one you'll be amazed that I am correct.

    It should exist because its a place, with borders, where regular people live.

    However, I do not believe that 'the jews' should own the country, just like I don't feel any religion should 'own' a country, no one can state claim to a piece of the earth simply because of a thousands of years old story which they happen to take extremely seriously.

    Difficult question, political question, and I'm not sure I could give the right answer because people were killed, believe in something better and for them the issue is not the place although I am not Jewess.

    Of course. They are no different than any of us. They have their ways, we have our ways. They have preferences, so do we. They are people just like us. We are all equal.

    I'm getting some very good answers. I can't really say. If they'd have chosen Argentina instead of Palestine, would that have been better for world peace? Or would it have merely relocated the shitstorm to South America? I do believe the Jews have a bona fide need to their own country. Problem is, most places on Earth are already inhabited by people who do not want to give up their land. Maybe they could try colonizing space?

    Difficult question Simple Answer
    They should exist but within their limits and by listening to stakeholders not by raining hell on neighbors and making them fear from the might of Zionism.

    I honestly believe that this question is far too difficult to answer but it is interesting that Israel is supported by the USA and it is smack bang in the middle of where oil is. The USA tends to have allies in territories in the world that are near to oil deposits or it needs to have an army in nations that produce oil e.g Saudi, Kuwait, Iraq etc.

    RACHAEILLEFLER: The state of ISRAEL was set up by the U.S.A.after w.w.2. Do not think that it was because they cared about the Jews no body did! It was because there is an ocean of oil under that desert ares,and theU.S.A. needed acess to it and a watchdog! If the U.S.pulled out completly they would be sitting ducks from 3 sides!Jews are not liked in the ARAB world at all!!As long as there is going to be an internal combustion engine the U.S. will continue to back Israel and continue to turn a blind eye to the injustices done to the Palestinian people!! That's just the way it is!!!

    It all depends on the politics played by US, China and Russia.

    I think Israel should have a state but they're going to far with uprooting Palsetinians on territory which isn't theirs. A compromise must be worked out but Israel seems to be too hard headed.
