Israel was created by European guilt over the Nazi Holocaust.
Why should Palestinians pay the price?
Three thousand years before the Holocaust, before there was a Roman Empire, Israel’s kings and prophets walked the streets of Jerusalem.
The whole world knows that Isaiah did not speak his prophesies from Portugal, nor Jeremiah his lamentations from France.
Revered by its people, Jerusalem is mentioned in the Hebrew Scriptures 600 times – but not once in the Koran.
Throughout its 2,000-year exile there was continuous Jewish presence in the Holy Land, with the modern rebirth of Israel beginning in the 1800s. Reclamation of the largely vacant land by pioneering Zionists blossomed into a Jewish majority long before the onset of Nazism.
After the Holocaust, nearly 200,000 Shoah survivors found haven in the Jewish State, created by a two-thirds vote of the UN in 1947. Soon 800,000 Jews fleeing persecution in Arab countries arrived. In ensuing decades, Israel absorbed a million immigrants from the Soviet Union and thousands of Ethiopian Jews. Today, far from being a vestige of European guilt or colonialism, Israel is a diverse, cosmopolitan society,
fulfilling the age-old dream of a people’s journey and ‘Return to Zion’- their ancient homeland.
