Should the State of Israel have a right to exist?

Postby Koletsia » Fri Sep 03, 2021 5:58 pm

I pose this question because as an anachronistic imperialist experiment it seems very strange that we allow them to slaughter the native inhabitants like the Israelites slaughtered the Canaanites thousands of years ago just so some whites from Europe can role play as ancient people. Seems kind of strange to me. What do you think?

Israel as a whole is a myth. The nation, nor the territory it is on, does not exist. It is in reality part of the Red Sea, which is named after the communist and not Islamist state of Commi Arabia, which is named after the Union of Soviet Communist Republics, which contrary to popular belief still exists and is named "USCR", not "USSR".
Ultranationalist State governed by megacorporations and the military, who are also locked in a consistent power struggle with each other that neither side actually wants to end because the death of one means the death of the other.

Wrong: it does exist, but is part of the red sea. Everyone lives underwater.

I wonder about that, but I suppose the onion shall be peeled soon enough.

In any case, dubious guy with an Israeli flag, the people you mock as roleplayers do have lineages that can be traced to Roman Judea, and through that, to the Israel of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. That's their claim to the land, their refuge from a world that still can't move on from its petty bigotries, and the reason why they and the Palestinians still have to torture each other for a land they can share in common, for a land that shall only be made whole if they can somehow work things out.

This logic would literally give any peoples a right to claim land that they historically lived in regardless of how they got there and regardless of how far distant in time it was.

To make a serious answer, at this point enough folks have been born there and lived there for their entire lives, so it's difficult to really get behind proposals to drive em to the sea.
Whether or not the "state" has the right to exist is a tricky thing, since you know states ain't necessarily the folks. The second French empire had no right to exist, but France most certainly did and does.

Would you feel better if the people who decided to go to Palestine instead decamped in Kenya? Or settled in Madagascar? Or chose Seward in Alaska?

Point is, they are refugees; Palestine was just the piece of land with the strongest emotional attachment at the time, things being what they were (six million dead, continental Europe a smoldering ruin, sHitler brained and roasted...).

Yes. Especially if it comes to the point that it is the only place Jews (and others as well) can freely practice their religion.

Arguably Israel has established its right to exist through force of arms if for no other reason. With the exception of some Arab states most of the world, including the UN, recognizes the State of Israel, so there's that. That being said no nation has the right to oppress any of its residents, such as the Israeli government does to its Arab residents, or such as, say, Saudi Arabia does to its guest workers. But states don't generally forfeit their right to exist because they oppress some of their residents.

Why should the Jewish people get their own state exclusive of multiculturalism where they can be themselves but not the English or the French or the Germans, for example?

Does emotional attachment and sad circumstances give refugees a right to remove/displace people who have been living in an area for thousands of years?
