First comprehensive study in Hebrew into Islamic State says Sunni group could wield more influence over Israeli Arabs and Palestinians if it takes land closer to Israel’s borders.11:08 28.11.15 | 1 comments
The most that can be claimed is that the Holocaust accelerated the creation of Israel. Jewish Palestinians had already created the fundamentals of a Jewish State and were ready to do so when the situation forced them to act. Far more important than the Holocaust per se was WWII which so bankrupted Britain that it could not afford to hold on to Palestine. WWII also created a humanitarian crisis in Europe, of which the Holocaust was just a part, which led to massive emigration. Palestine was one of MANY regions and nations which absorbed this emigration. WW II, not the Holocaust, forced the creation of Israel before the Zionist leadership in Palestine would have chosen, not the Holocaust. Mr. Arens has addressed the situation well.
