Trying to convince Israelis and Americans that history is not all about them is rather difficult but I will try. The result of WWI was the dissolution of the multinational empires into nation states. However these nation states were themselves heterogeneous, e.g. Romania had substantial Hungarian and German minorities. The result of WWII was the homogenisation of these nation states either by 'ethnic cleansing' (the Holocaust) or population transfers. Since Jews were a minority in every country, the obvious solution was to create a country for them. Rather than doing so at the expense of any of the European states, it was done in the Middle East since the Arabs didn't have any say in the matter. I realise that this does not accord with the founding myths of Israel but then the Puritans in Massachusetts were religious bigots who burned dissenters at the stake.
