...the Arabs, Palestinian and otherwise, finally come to terms with reality and accept Israel's right to be, to exist as the nation-state of the Jewish people. This right of course was accepted by the rest of the world as early as the end of the 19th century. It formally received its expression in the form of the Balfour Declaration of 1917. The League of Nations then reiterated the Balfour Declaration in 1923. In 1937 the Peel Commission used this understanding to propose the establishment of a Jewish state, 1937. And finally, the UN incorporated this right and voted in 1947 to establish the "Jewish state" of Israel. The only ones who, to this day have not accepted this right has been the coalition of Muslim and Arab states and would see to it that Israel is annihilated the moment they have the opportunity to do so, as they have attempted in 1948, 1967 and 1973. Presently the Muslim and Arab coalition to eliminate Israel is lead by Iran and consists of Syria, Hamas and Hizballa.
