You have obviously not heard of the Jewish people before, Melissa, so allow me to educate you. We came together as a people in the Middle East. We were then exiled to diaspora, and subsisted as an ethnic minority in many countries around the world, growing in contact with the local populations as we did so. Now many of us have returned to the place where we came from, taking up the rights guaranteed under international law. If you have a problem with Israeli policies, you should criticise those. If you wish, rather, to spread false history and imply that the Jewish people never existed, know that many will not treat such negationism kindly.
