legally, historically and ethically. Legally, Israel is the manifestation of that which has been proclaimed, decided and resolved by the Balfour Declaration, 1917; The San Remo Conference, 1920; The League of Nations, 1922 and the United Nations, 1947. The totality of the decisions of these international bodies is part of "international law" calling for the establishment of a "Jewish state" in the Land. Historically, the Jewish people as a people has maintained presence in the Land for nearly 4,000 years and has perceived and kept its affinity to it and to Zion, that is Jerusalem, for over 3,000 years without any interruption. Ethically, Israel's right to be, to exist as the nation-state of the Jewish people is based on the universally accepted right of all peoples, including that of the Jewish people, to national self-determination and independence in one's ancestral homeland, the Land of Israel. Israel in that sense is as the nation-state of the Jewish people as Greece is the nation-state of the Greek people; as Denmark is the nation-state of the Danish people; and as Poland is the nation-state of the Polish people, each with its own minority groups who are equal before the law as individual citizens, as Arabs are in Israel.
