Next year under different circumstances a new poll will render different results. So what? The real polltaker is History and Historical facts demand that there be a state of Israel. Two thousand years of Diaspora existence filled with persecution and mini-holocausts, culminating in the Holocaust is proof enough. That Germans have the audaucity to vote in these polls is proof they still have no real understanding. They should be saying 'Sorry, but we're barred from voting on whether Jews should have an existence or not.' The fact is that Israel has more legitimacy that do any of the Euro nations, none of which had existences until very late in history and one of which - Italy, or at least Rome, I am sad to say - is responsible for the destruction of Israel. Without the Roman occupation, destruction of the Temple, banishment of Jews from Israel and the enslavement of Jews in Europe, Israel would have been a much larger fact for over 2000 years. And no Holocaust in 1940s.
