Thus, land acquisition by Jews was not merely ''real estate'' in a country under Arab sovereignty. As for the partition plan, it did not give 56% of Palestine to the Jews, but rather 12% of it (you seem to forget that Jordan was part-and-parcel of Palestine until 1922). Nonetheless, it is true that this Israelis created their state in a territory that was already occupied by the Palestinians. But anyway, as I said, the Jews were a landless people. Thus, it was right to partition Palestine, so that both the Jews and the Arabs can have a state of their own. Of course, you have the right to disagree with this idea. But wanting nations that already have a territory of their own to share a part of it with homeless nations has nothing to do with ''colonialism'' or ''imperialism''. Sharing ressources is called distributive justice, not theft. I would expect rightists to believe the opposite, not people on the left!
