Should Israel be forced to cut itself in half AGAIN?

Both modern day Israel and Jordan were part of the British Mandate of Palestine and they were both originally set aside by international authorities to become a Jewish State. At the San Remo Conference in 1920 the League of Nations decided to cut up this land and gave the land east of the Jordan River (modern-day Jordan) to the Arab population living under the Mandate, more than 75% of the Jewish National Homeland!

Now, there is international pressure for Israel to cut up even more of its land and give away the historically and religiously important regions of Judea and Samaria, which make up 22% of the current map of Israel. Should the Jewish Nation agree to this, Israel will encompass the ret dot on the map of the Middle East below. There are 22 Arab Muslim countries. There is just one Jewish country and people keep cutting it in half! Is this just?

    Israel is a tiny country of which half is desert. Israel is the state for the Jews. We must have a safe and secure Israel and not lose one inch. It is a democracy and has many non-Jewish citizens.

    we should let Israel do their business and stand ready to support their decisions.
    they shouldn't have to give up anymore land.

    FYI America: It may be useful for you to know that these polls sponsored by "Step Up For Israel" are rooted in a Zionist propaganda industry known as "Hasbara". Campaign Chairs for Step Up For Israel are Professor Alan Dershowitz and Ambassador Dore Gold. Dersowitz is a notorious shill for Israeli land grabbing policies and a 5th columnist for Zionist aims of expansionism and dispossession of the native Palestinians. Dore Gold was born in America but as an "Israel First" Jew, has now defected to Israel where he currently resides.

    Israel and it's American 5th columnist "Israel Firsters" are conducting a massive PR campaign on the internet and all media venues worldwide and even college campuses. Isrel's Foreign Ministry hires and trains professional propagandists colloquially known as "Hasbara trolls" to flood the internet, blow kisses at Israel, and defame and dehumanize Muslims. I just thought you should know...

    Because Israel was not the aggressor in its wars, it should keep any land it captures, either for settlement or for trad-off negotiations, All civilians within captured zones must either swear allegiance on video to the Jewish state or be imprisoned as an enemy agent for a reasonable period of time before being deported to whomever will take them.

    I'm still debating the legitimacy of forcing the establishment of a jewish state in the Palestine area.

    The two original area's mentioned as potential Jewish homelands, one in the Ukraine, the other in Nigeria, had large native populations that were Jewish and made much more sense than trying to forcibly impose a Jewish state on Palestinians.

    You did not know that was post WWII plan?? I believe the region in mind was called Galacia?

    There was also the African homeland, in another traditional Jewish region.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
    The British Uganda Program was a plan to give a portion of British East Africa to the Jewish people as a homeland.

    The offer was first made by British Colonial Secretary Joseph Chamberlain to Theodore Herzl's Zionist group in 1903. He offered 5,000 square miles (13,000 km2) of the Mau Plateau in what is today Kenya. The offer was a response to pogroms against the Jews in Russia, and it was hoped the area could be a refuge from persecution for the Jewish people.

    The idea was brought to the World Zionist Organization's Zionist Congress at its sixth meeting in 1903 meeting in Basel. There a fierce debate ensued. The African land was described as an "ante-chamber to the Holy Land", but other groups felt that accepting the offer would make it more difficult to establish a Jewish state in Palestine. Before the vote on the matter, the Russian delegation stormed out in opposition. In the end, the motion passed by 295 to 177 votes.

    Jewish settlement in Ukraine predates the beginnings of recorded history in the region. Archaeological evidence places Jews among Greek traders inhabiting the Black Sea coastline in the last centuries before the Common Era. The eastern portions of Ukraine, extending all the way to Kiev, were later absorbed into the Khazar kingdom, with its center just north of the Caspian Sea. The Khazars were a Turkic nomadic people whose rulers and upper classes converted to Judaism in the mid-eighth century, perhaps in an attempt to retain political independence in the face of the growth of the Christian world in the west and Muslim expansion from the south. Kiev in particular shows significant evidence of Khazar settlement, and the city may in fact have been founded by the Khazars as a trading outpost. The story of the Khazar king’s conversion to Judaism, after he had convened a debate among representatives of the major monotheistic faiths, is later echoed in the Povest’ vremennykh let (Russian Primary Chronicle; twelfth century), describing how Prince Volodymyr (Vladimir) chose Eastern Christianity under similar conditions in the late tenth century.


    What Right Do Zionist Jews Have To Palestine?
    by Jason Collett, 2003-11-09

    What title-deeds do the Jews of today actually have to the land of 'Israel'? The idea that a people can possess some kind of ethnic ancestral right to a territory supposedly vacated by their forebears some millenia previously, implying a right in perpetuity, can have no legal basis

    http://www.serendipity.li/zio...


    By what right does the State of Israel exist?

    Morality in Real Life
    By the right of Might. Its right of they can make it stick. It will turn out to be not right only if they fail to make it stick.

    No, because the Jews fought for the land. Each nation fought to establish their own state, the blood shed. Give their lives for their own state in the territory of the Jews so they deserve. For example, I am Turkmen, and my ancestors emigrated to Central Asia from the Altai Mountains centuries ago, and years later founded the independent state of Turkmenistan. Previously it does not matter who owns the land, the struggle for land that is important. I am Muslim, but I thought this way. But I want to say one more thing. Today, laws and rules have changed. While maintaining its own state of Israel should not harm innocent Palestinian children, must act fairly.

    Lets be real- The foreign Jews- moved to the Palestinian following WWII- fought for the land by attacking the unarmed Palestinian subjects (of the British Empire) in their homes and forcing them out of their houses and down the road as refugees in 1949.

    There is NO ethical or moral excuse for Israel. There were areas in Ukraine and Nigeria already designated to be Jewish homelands

Why in the world would Arab peoples need to take a piece of land the size of Rhode Island and divide it yet again when there are thousands of square miles of Arab territories immediately surrounding the area that they can settle into. You've got to wonder what is so incredibly important about this one little tract of land that is fueling so much international debate and attention. Could the bible ACTUALLY be right?! Hmmmmm?

    Pretty sure that Russia has the biggest land area and China STILL has the biggest population. Oh please enlighten me to how and when the Arabs conceded Europe AND the USA? A Muslim invasion set off the First Crusades, but somehow the Arabs can conquer but never lose? That's a delusional outlook that we've had enough of in this world. The Arabians were still happy in their desert kingdoms back when Europe founded/invaded the Americas.
