    there should never be a state with jewish majority even though there are 23 states with arab and probably eighty states with muslim majority. Because the Jews should know full well by now that they are absolutely safe and protected as a minority in christian and muslim countries, thousands of years of pogroms, holocausts, inquisitions and dhimmi status notwithstanding...

    Because Yugoslavia worked out so well in Europe, because the Kurds are not and have never been oppressed in Turkey and Iraq, because India and Pakistan should not have been partitioned either... Right?

      You certainly don't seem to be interested in a conversation with me.  Peddle your strawmen to someone else.

      Seriously, why isn't America the promised land--geography?

        no pogroms in Berlin in the 1920s either, the jews actually felt patriotic, well-liked and respected German citizens, equals among equals. We know how that ended just 10 years later.

      Dude.

      Make sensible arguments.  It's easy.

      If there were 100 "Arab" states, would Zionism be more Just?

      How about if there were 3?

      What "the Arabs" have is irrelevant.

      The existance of Israel doesn't make Jews safe from persecution or violence, and doesn't entitle them to a State either.  

      I ain't about to compare Scale, but the Samaritans have been through absolute hell on a proportional scale - Do they "deserve" a State?

      How about

      "Israel has a Right to exist supported by the same Principle that supports that Right for any other State on Earth - the fact the overwhelming majority of those residing within it support its continued existence".
