    and I'll stick with mine. The UN voted for the partition of Palestine in 47, the Jews in Palestine agreed to this and the Arabs did not. Nearly 70 years has passed since then. wars have been fought, peace negotiations have taken place and settlers have moved onto Palestinian territory - and in the case of Gaza have moved out again. During this time both sides have tried to do some good, both sides have done wrong. You are clearly an anti-Zionist which you are fully entitled to be. Therefore you will never accept that there should be a Jewish homeland in the region. I am a Zionist and therefore I perceive Israel as having been given to the Jews by the UN and not, as you put it - taken by force. I know this is barely even a superficial precis of all that has happened and why, but it would take tens of thousands of words to debate what has happened over 70 years. I am happy to stick with just a few!
