Two important facts are ignored by most zionists: 1. They are dealing with an unfortunate (from their viewpoint) history. The Middle East and much of Africa were invaded and subjugated by people from Europe who treated them very badly. They remember it very well. Despite any claims to be returning to their homeland, the locals (justifiably) sees just another European invader. Coming from that background, the zionists are no more likely to be allowed to enjoy their conquest than the crusaders were. 2. Israel may be a power in the area, but in the big wide world it is another little loud country. Public opinion in the rest of the world is turning against it, and it can't exist if the rest of the world by boycotts and sanctions decides to get rid of it, Attempts at schrecklichheit will only advance this happening.
