Today's modern, Ashkenazi Zionists have absolutely no "historical connection to the land".<quoted text>
Boundaries and cultures exist and change with the time. Maps change, countries are born and die and are reborn. The sense that the Middle East should be all ARAB is not justified because many civilizations have tried to exist there. Establishing a small parcel of land called Israel is fair given the historical connection to the land.
EDITED FOR SPACE
This fact has been proven both genetically and via archeology:
1.New Genome Study Destroys Zionist Claims to Palestine
EXCERPTS On December 14, 2012, Dr. Eran Elhaik turned almost two generations of Jewish genome research upside down.
But he went even further. The young Israeli-American geneticist has charged former researchers with academic fraud, and he has the research to back it up.
How could those those eminent Jewish scientist before him have been so wrong? Easy says Dr. Elhaik,First these researchers decided what conclusions they wanted to find, and then they set off to find evidence to support it. I was not bashing Jewish scientists. What Elhaik has described is a slam dunk fraud.
But why? Why would Jews who take such pride in the academic achievement risk exposing themselves to a group deception which was bound to be discovered later? Dr. Elhaik does not delve into the quicksand of the politics, CONTINUED
2.DECONSTRUCTING THE WALLS OF JERICO
IN ANCIENT EGYPT, CANAAN REVISITED WITHOUT ISRAEL
EXCERPT "In his article Deconstructing the Walls of Jericho, appearing in Haaretz (29 October 1999), Zeev Herzog calls the mention of Israel on the stele a reference to population group of nomads who most probably were always on the move, looking for fertile land to herd their animals. In the article Herzog concludes.
Following 70 years of intensive excavations in the Land of Israel, archaeologists have found out:
The patriarchs acts are legendary stories, we did not sojourn in Egypt or make an exodus, and we did not conquer the land.
Neither is there any mention of the empire of David and Solomon.
Those who take an interest have known these facts for years, but Israel is a stubborn people and doesnt want to hear about it.
Egypt is mentioned in the Holy Bible approximately 700 times (Egypt: 595 times, Egyptian(s): 120 times).
Israelites were mentioned in the ancient Egyptian records once or maybe none at all."CONTINUED

According to the Hebrew Bible, Solomon's Temple, also known as the First Temple, was the Holy Temple (Hebrew: בֵ 68;ית& #1470;הַ מִ 68;קְ& #1491;ָּ שׁR 06;: Bet HaMikdash) in ancient Jerusalem, on the Temple Mount (also known as Mount Zion), before its alleged destruction by Nebuchadnezzar II after the Siege of Jerusalem of 587 BCE.There is no direct archaeological evidence for the existence of Solomon's Temple, and no mention of it in the surviving contemporary extra-biblical literature.CONTINUED
BETYA DIDNT KNOW THAT ARCHEOLOGY IS ANTI-SEMITIC)
Anyway, if Israel nationalism depends on the Bibles stories of David and Solomon being historical, then kiss it goodbye.
Israeli's Zionists are from Brooklyn, Russia, Spain etc etc
