    Our Arab friends would not necessarily refer to me as a "Zionist" however I do believe that having the State of Israel is very important. To some Jews the State of Israel is a source of problems because anti semitism is rising due to the perception of the Palestinian problem. What was the case before 1948??? There were no Jews taking over or running Palestine, but the Arabs were still attacking and killing us. Here in North America a million miles away from the Middle East we are held to task by our new neighbours for Israeli policies. But you know what, if it wasn't the Palestinians, it would be something else. The reason is that nobody enjoys having a better scapegoat for all the wrongs of the world than the good old Jews. So we need to be strong and kick butt!!! Let the Palestinians have a homeland. Whether they will live in peace is another question that can only be answered by trying. Of course the Muslim fanatics will still want it all so it remains to be seen.
