Israel does not have to justify her existance any more than Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia for example who were all formed at or around the same time by the same body. The lone country to be singled out is Israel and you refer to Leonard's racism???? The arabs refer to Israel as being occupied arab land. Textbooks in Saudi Arabia show the entire Israel as being "occupied palestine". The same goes for textbooks in the PA. Israel is an opressor by her mere existance according to them and obviously you. That is the root of the problem. What would have happened to "occupied Israel" had the combined arab armies won when they attacked in '48? Do you relish in being a racist? Don't pontificate here.
