    Why till now hasn't the USA, UN, and EU recognized Israel as a "Jewish" state? Why pressing this point and demanding that the Pals. recognize Israel as "Jewish" when the rest of the world hasn't? It's obvious that the notion of "homeland of the Jewish people" was formulated by imperialism's necessity to carve out a state which will always be in need of Western assistance and which will always be a foreign body causing turmoil in the region for the sake of Western interests. Let's not forget that parts of Eastern Europe, Uganda, Argentina, and even some piece of desert in the Persian Gulf were all considered as candidates for the so called "homeland of the Jewish people," which once again proves it's an invention of Western colonial powers and establishes the unnatural and forceful implantation of Israel in the region. This notion was agreed to on interest, not on facts, by the UK, who then proceeded to printing the term "Jewish Homeland" on the Balfour Declaration. "Diaspora" and fallacious historical constructions of a mythical people wandering about far from their land account to no more than a fairy tale told by politicians to stupefy the masses. The most alarming is that Israel is taking an increasingly turn towards becoming what the Reich purported to have been, and that is has slipped very much away from the imperiousness of Western powers; even Obama can't produce a simple condemnation, while the EU will always be lacerated by the "Holocaust" whip of historical guilt.
