First of all, before the year 1948, Israel did not exist. In fact, the region was named Palestine because the people living there are Palestinians. Those Jews that fight for a Jewish state in Palestine are named Zionists, a form of national-socialism. Israel was founded by Ashkenazi Jews, meaning "German Jews", and while in the 11th century they were a small minority comprising no more than 3 percent of the world's Jewish population, they now represent around 80 percent. Their language is Yiddish, not Hebrew.
Theodor Herzl is the key figure in the forming of the Zionist ideology.
We must not fall into the trap of thinking that all Jews are extremists, there is a movement of Anti-Zionist Orthodox Jews that put peace and cooperation above death and terror. Sadly, the money and through this, the power, is in the hands of the Zionists, who want to eliminate all Arab communities in Palestine and gain an edge against other countries through the use of deceit. Why is America helping them, even if innocent Palestinians die? You can find the answer by yourself. Obama said in the AIPAC meeting that the security of Israel is important... why not also the security of Palestinians... why not peace? Tens of thousands of people protested against AIPAC and against the genocide that is taking place in Palestine. The world needs to wake up, it needs to put human development and well-being above stupid disputes. Israel must give up its nuclear weapons and start a process of cooperation with the Palestinians. The Palestinians also need to accept the Jews and try to live together because in the end they are all of the same origin.
The US must stop helping Israel and ask for UN Peacekeeping forces to intervene and stop the killings, why should the American citizens pay for Israelian bombs? Who would like to live thinking that their hands are stained with the blood of Palestinian children? The majority of Jews are dragged into this mess against their will, the same with most Arabs and their Islamic extremist "rulers".
