Israel is the only Democracy in the ME. That is obvious. All nationalities, including Muslim live freely in Israel and are even included in the government.
If my memory serves me Gazans opted to have Hamas, a terrorist organization that has within it’s Charter the demise of Israel to be an intricate part of their government. Now they Gazan people went to the UN after this last war to complain of being tortured and killed by Hamas during the last conflict.
As to Palestine there is no such thing. Never has been. I am a student of Ancient History and the facts are a Roman named the area after the Philistines to insult the Jews. Gaza is a city and in 2006 it was named the third largest refugee camp in the world when Arabs and Jews were run off their lands by the Jordanians into Gaza City. The Jews left but the Arabs stayed and now they Occupy Gaza.
Just think of all the refugee camps now in the ME and imagine if these millions of people demand a stateship to those lands.
Israel is a Democracy and an Allie of the U.S. It is a Nation and has Sovereignty and the right to protect itself from bombs and those who wish to destroy it.
Jews have had a presence in the Holy Lands for over 3,000 years. Muhammad born thousands of years after the Jews a Nation and hundreds after Christianity. There were no Muslims in the Holy Lands. None of the monuments and artifacts are Islamic. Those found daily in the Holy Lands by archaeologists are Jewish. The Jews were in the area since the iron ages.
