Israel was direct result of Holocaust. The true direct result was the pre Holocaust Zionist movement to return the Jews to their historic lands. The sheer evel of Holocaust may have played the role in expediting the creation of Israel, as its atrocities, in large directed at the Jews, had greatly outweighted, negated & silenced whatever remnants of the oposition in creating Israel there would have been. Which notion does or does not bode well in certain circles: return to the (accent) Jewish historic lands or the wrong was righted by purging the innocents who had nothing to do with that wrong into their own `Holocaust` (& does have to be righted by now removing or greatly usurping Israel). When even the gross propaganda or lie is repeated long enough (especially over so many, many years), the original events distance in time or ease out from the memories & generations change, eventually any mantra becomes nothing out of ordinary thought, idea or solution. Even in the highest of rows.
