I agree. So what made the European Zionists think they had a "home" in Palestine?
I have to write a lot so I will start like the arabs start:
Bismi La il Rahman u il Rahim
For the same reason that african-americans sailed back to Africa and founded the State of Liberia .
What is written on the flag of Liberia ?
This : "The love of freedom brought us here" .
Why? weren't they free in America ?
No, they weren't .Neither were the Jews inEurope.
The Jews were persecuted everywhere .
I think the problem is with the word Zionist .You must know what
is Zionism . Zionism is the Movement that seeks to bring back the
Jews to the land that was theirs in the ancient times.
Let us forget the word zionist .It is not important .
What is important is that the Jews were consolidated as a nation in the land of Israel .
The Roman Empire (an evil empire ) destroyed their land and
expelled them to Rome to use them as slaves.
The Jews were spread over all the world but never forgot their
origin and their land.
The Holy Book explains it all . By the way , the arabs call the Jews , traditionally - "the people of the Book" because even Muhammad was well aware of what was written in the Bible.
He believed in the same God that the Jews . The only difference was that he proclaimed himself as the last and most important
prophet of God. But he respected all the prophets of the Bible .
And IN THE BIBLE it is written exactly what is going on . The Bible said 4000 years ago about the long exile of the Jews .
And their final return and renewal of their land .
The land of Israel was a desert during 2000 years . Many empires
walked thru this land but nobody made a permanent relation with it.Nobody made it blossom .
When the Jews started to come back in 1900 , they started to develop it. This was a blessing also to the arabs that lived there , because they started to have jobs . The two people ...
Jews and Arabs were great friends then . But there always is a bad guy... and in this case the bad guy was the British. They were
interested to create a conflict between Arabs and Jews, because in that way they would have a reason to stay there forever as the
ruling power . THAT WAS THE BIRTH OF THE ARAB-JEW WAR. Because
of the British that always used the motto "Divide and dominate " .
And THAT is the story that you asked me. The REAL STORY. Not
what you hear over there .
And the BIBLE also writes that after the Jews will come back they will have to fight a lot to defend their country. Against
great countries. Against great powers . But in the final stage
they will obtain their peace and security , and the other nations
will also obtain peace and security. It is ALL WRITTEN in the
OK , Now you and me let us eat a falafel . There is good falafel here in Uruguay , and also good falafel in the USA .
Come on man, Jews and Arabs ARE COUSINS! Jacob and Ismael are
both sons of Abraham . Come on , cousin , let us drink Arak and
eat falafel .
