You claim that you know the facts yet you regurgitate Israeli propaganda. you must understand why what people think they know is important. you have so many errors that I will only look at some of them here.
<< justify continued violence such as the right of return. >>
First of all, the right of return is not "violence". Your comment is very extreme.
Second, the right of return is not a suggestion or proposal, it is a right under international law. And Israel was admitted into the UN on condition that it honor the Palestinian's right of return.
Israel was accepted into the United Nations on condition that it accept the Right of Return of the Palestinian refugees. Admission of Israel to membership in the United Nations (General Assembly Resolution 273 of May 11, 1949 ) requires Israel to comply with General Assembly Resolution 194 of December 11, 1948 and Israel stated it agreed to comply with this resolution.
Third, the UN did not set the boundries of Israel. The UN proposal was never put int effect. that proposal suggested 56% of Palestine for the Jewish state. The Zionists DID NOT ACCEPT THE UN PROPOSAL. BEFOR MAY 1948, the Zionists seized land well beyond the 56% up to 77% percent stolen (keep in mind that Jews only owened 6% of the land and were only 33% of the population)
BEFORE May 1948 they had already ethnically cleansed 300,000 people to achieve their "demographic purity"
You have fallen for the ZIonists propaganda since you think the UN partition plan is what established Israel. As I have shown the plan was never put into effect. The Zionists then seized as much land as possible (even huge portions of land that had been suggested as the Palestinian state) and had ethnically cleansed 300,000 people (they would go on after May 1948 to ethnically cleanse another 350,000 people)
<< In 1948 before the partitioning plan was put into effect >>
as I have pointed out, the plan was never put into effect. (by the way key Zionists made it clear it was only a step in taking over all of Palestine)
<< t is a 2 state solution was viable. The Armies of Egypt, Lebanon, Iraq, and Syria attacked Israel. Israel did not attack them. >>
WRONG. siezing most of the land and pushing 300,000 people of of their land IS AN ATTACK. The Zionists were attacking and killing to grab the land and ethnically cleanse (this was BEFORE MAY 1948) The Arab countries RESPONDED to the Zionists land grab, your claim that Israel did not attack is false.
What you should think about is why you have so many facts wrong. the reason is that Israeli propganda dominates U.S. media and education. This is power and it is abused. Look into these facts and you will see how it is misrepresented so that you come away with the false impressions that you hold.
This should show you how much of a probnlem we haev with the media and education system here in America.
What you think you know is the result of what has been presented to you and what has been withheld. Take the time to check the fatcs and then think about what extreme manipulations are occring in this country. You have to ask your self if you want to know the truth or do you want to be manipulated.
