Yes, I am aware of those facts as written as above.
Like I said earlier, I understand perfectly the position of the Palestinians
who are in a way, conquered by the Jews. And that the formation of a
Jewish- state was of Zionist choosing is indeed undeniable, but and that
was and still is my point, without the support of the nations/ groups you
mention in your post, there was no Israeli- state !
And thus, if we, the West, Europe and America had blocked their
attempts we wouldn 't have this mess.
But having said this, memetic locks must have been broken in that period
of history, not now !
We were, and still are emotional attached to the position of the Jews in
his world. The multiple Zionist movements that ablied support for Je-
wish settlement had to be stopped then, not now !
Don 't misunderstand me, they got an even right to live in a land of their
own, but " not- knowing " that there were people living in the territory
of their choosing is hard to comprehend.
What were the Brits doing over there !? Counting sheep !?
IMO, there was no ' no- man's- land ' left... an empty land, indeed !
Who believed this stuff, anyway !?
There, IIRC, still a few blind spots left in the world ( deserts, the
of Australia, America, Russia and Canada)... I wonder anyone could
claim those as their own.... !?
