The historical Jewish homeland and the only Jewish sanctuary. About the size of a pencil and the age of your folks (founded in 1948) but somehow among the world's greatest powers despite jaw-dropping odds. The Israeli population has the highest number of PhDs and produces the greatest number of technological inventions per capita in the world (e.g. the cellphone). The GDP and living standards in Israel are about as high as England's. Despite its great military capabilities, it is the victim of Arab terrorism and is kept from kicking Arab ass by the anti-Semitic UN and the European Union who wish to see it annihiliated. Israel's only known friend in the world is the United States (God bless her). Israel will be a superpower and every Jew will one day live there.
"If America doesn't bomb Iran to kingdom come before they get nukes, Israel should and will like it did to Saddam in 1981."
"Palestine? you mean that fake name the Romans gave to Israel in 70 AD?"
"Palestinians? you mean those people who only moved to Israel from neighboring Arab lands in the late 19th century after the Jewish pioneers came, made the deserts bloom, built cities, and offered those Arabs jobs?"
"Yasser Arafat? you mean that Egyptian who moved to Israel in the 1970's and became the leader of the "Palestinian people" half of whom are Egyptians too?"
"The people of Israel are the chosen people."
