    Israel didn't just pop into existence in 1948. Jewish pioneers had spent over 70 years working the land (turning swampland into rich farm land, etc) when the UN voted for Partitian. Jews installed electricity in the Holy Land in the 1920s. The Arabs in the Holy Land benefit from this Jewish infrastructure to this very day. Jews were murdered randomly all along the way by Arabs, but the Jewish people kept investing and building. Israel is now the result of over 120 years of Jewish investment and hard work. This is what Israel's enemies are trying to steal from the Jewish people. Israel is now worth trillions and trillions of dollars in Jewish immovable property. Her enemies are literally dying to steal it. Ending Israel's existence and stealing Jewish property is what this conflict has been about for over 100 years now. It isn't going to work this time.
