Israel will earn its right to exist when it pays the $200 billion it owes to Palestinian property owners. Until that happens, though, Palestinians have a legal right to attempt to evict squatters just like any other property owner.
(In principal, I think Germany and Britain should probably be required to split the costs of compensation with Israel.)
what about the war Israel won in 67?
The Palestinian holocaust happened in 1947.
Ugh, I knew I shouldnt have added the year. Which year was the 7 day war?
No, you were right. Israel staged a sneak attack against Egypt and Syria in 1967.
Yeah, I have to believe that if Israel lost the war, and ceased to exist in 67, then I would accept the history that xyz won the war, and that's the way it is.
