The international community agreed on Israel being a Jewish homeland in .5% of the Middle East 20 years before the Holocaust. The Holocaust reaffirmed this idea - a necessary homeland to prevent eprsecution and anti-Semitism, which has been going on for the past 3000 years. Spain has recently announced that the refugee issue should be settled in a way that maintans the character of the Jewish state. Israel is a Jewish state, but it secular, and Israeli law guarantees all citizens equal rights. Radically different from any Arab country... But leftists like you don't talk squat about Arab countries. Which are Arab countries. Which practically have no Jews because they were expelled.
