    nature and history of the Jewish Holocaust and the very long history of anti-Semitism that preceded it throughout Europe. There is enough objective information out there from which to study. I would state, however, that Israel is NOT a product of the Jewish Holocaust. Israel is a result of the rise of Jewish naationalism that began in the second part of the 19th century. The first Zionist congress was held in 1897, calling for the establishment of a Jewish national home in Eretz Israel (Land of Israel). The universally accepted principle of the right of peoples to national self-determination was internationally perceived as applicable to the Jewish people in its historic homeland of Eretz Israel, hence the British Balfour Declaration of 1917 that called for the establishment of a Jewish home for the Jewish People in Eretz Israel. And in 1937 (and in 1947) the UN offered the Jewish people a state in Eretz Israel, before the war and before the Holocaust.

Netanyahu trades Israel's democracy for a shtetl with German submarines
