The occupation of Palestine by Europeans was always going to be a problem.
this European colonization goes back to the Greeks under Alexander 300 BC and to the Romans under the various emperors as successors to the Greek/ Ptolemaic/ Seleucid rule, , leading to the Roman destruction of the Jewish state in the two jewish rebellions, 70 AD and 130 AD
after that Palestine was occupied by the Persians or Parthians ,and after that by the Arabs during the Muslim expansion of the 700s, , culminating in the Ottoman occupation (after internal geopolitical Islamic power struggles) , from the 1500s to the 1900s, 1917, to be exact and the 1920s allocation of those lands, first in the league of nations and later in the UN, ‘back’ to the Jews
why do you pick one START DATE and others pick others?
in general, these conflicts are approached with territorial compromise, which was the 1947 UN vote, which was promptly rejected by war by the Arabs, who have not stopped since, including yesterday, losing one battle after another, and then crying their own version of victim-hood, most lately the ‘nakbah’ of 1947, or the israeli massacre at sea – we are tired of the Palestinian nakbah, you should be aware, as a self-created hardship, the criminal who murders her parents and then claims judicial sympathy for being an orphan
many of us are tired of old grievance,s including the Arab one, the African American one, the Armenian one, the Kurdish one, the Irish i know remember the British in northern Ireland.
and oh yeah, Osama went to war because of the christian reconquest of Andalusia
in Serbia the wars of the 1300s are remembered as yesterday
so why start and end with jewish victimology?
beyond that the UN charter provides for self-determination,which is interpreted as ethnic territorial nationalism, aka the jewish state
