You want more research? Israel didn’t even exist until 1947, at which point David Ben-Gurion started the systematic destruction of all Arab peoples who were living in what had now become a “Jewish state.” Palestinians were given little to no notice that they had to leave their homes or die. The fun part about all of this is that the UN partitioned the land without any input from the people who were actually living there, and gave 55% of the land over to become Israel despite the fact that the Jewish population at that time made up approximately 30% of the entire population and owned approximately 7% of the land.
MORE research, you say?! Alright. The entire area was living peacefully for centuries before the UN got involved. Jewish families hid Palestinians in their homes to avoid their detection. Jewish families protected Palestinian families from what equated to lynch mobs and military force. JEWISH FAMILIES tried their damnedest to save Palestinians from making one choice: leave or die. But Zionists didn’t much care for that, so the Palestinians just had to go.
And now we (i.e. the United States) continue to fund Israel’s military, giving them not only money, but weapons of mass destruction (yes, MASS DESTRUCTION) to use against Palestinians who want nothing other than to go back home.
Do YOUR research. Start with the creation of the Jewish state and go from there. I highly recommend just about anything by Ilan Pappe, and a few things from Noam Chomsky (but not everything). Remi Kanazi does amazing work, too.
