    Many Israelis/Jews (since the majority are not really Jews) have European backgrounds. They came to the "historic land of Jews" called Israel. The land which was conquered by Muslims led by Muhammad. The land which was promised by god to Jews and not anyone else. The land which is home to millions of non-Jews (without specifying them as Palestinians) and who have been kicked out. "People" from across the globe migrated to this "land" to live in "Israel". All of them know very well that they came to a place which was inhibited by others. Those others have been killed, massacred, arrested, and then became refugees with no home! And Jews became nationals at a place that it is no home for them, build their homes over others' homes, and established their own country! But I wonder how would Israelis feel about that? They live behind "walls of discrimination and humiliation", their sons are either prison guards or policing checkpoints, and protected by Iron defense system. Its amazing why would anyone leave his or her real home and come to live in such inhuman situation. If I was an Israeli or even a Jew, I would just think about that. But would Israelis think about it? I am not sure!
