A legitimate and legally recognized Jewish majority country that deserves to exist. The "ethnic cleansing of Palestinians" is by far a gross exaggeration. If Palestinians are being ethnically cleansed, why is their population continually growing. You would figure that if Israel wanted to ethnically cleanse them, they would have done so already. True, Israel's democracy is flawed but so is any other country in the world. Its amazing how a lot of people here have problems with Israel being a Jewish state but do not seem to mind the fact that there are 20 countries surrounding it who call themselves "Islamic Republics". Israel is NOT a racist or colonial state but is actually a multicultural country consisting of Druze, Sephards, Ashkenazi, Mizrahi, Yemen Jews, Circassians, Bedouins, Maronites, Copts, etc. 1.2 million Arabs live in Israel and serve in the Knesset. While there is discrimination, can you show me an Arab country where so many different and diverse groups are able to live together? Despite the frequent bashing it receives, Israel is not as bad as people make it out to be. Perhaps the idea of Jews having their own state irks some people, I don't know for sure. Legitimate criticism of Israel is necessary and needed, such as the settlements at the West Bank. However calling Israel an "illegal Zionist entity" and that Israelis are "fake Khazar Jew converts" does not constitute constructive criticism and constitutes thinly veiled anti-semitism.
Apparently its ok for Palestinians to conduct suicide bombing and rocket attacks against israel, but not vice versa. The Palestinians are the victims of their own leadership and are used as pawns by other Arab nations to advance their own agenda. If you read the Hamas covenant it states that "Today it is Palestine, tomorrow it will be one country or another. The Zionist plan is limitless. After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand from the Nile to the Euphrates. When they will have digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further expansion, and so on. Their plan is embodied in the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion", and their present conduct is the best proof of what we are saying." I find it hard to reason with people who have such a destructive agenda. If Hamas had the weapons that Israel had they would have wiped it out in no time. Israel, on the other hand, shows remarkable restraint, despite the constant barrage of criticism that they receive.

A citizen of the state of Israel. Israelis seem themselves as sabras, tough and gruff on the outside but sweet and warm on the inside. Are known to be very stubborn, proud, and determined as well as hard working and industrious.
The Israeli was fierce and unrelenting in his desire to succeed in life.

People of the Jewish religion. Contrary to some of the anti-semitic definitions here, Jews are regular people like you and me who just want to live in peace and be left alone. The reason why Jews are successful is because of hard work and dedication as well as perseverance. When we say we're "Chosen people", we don't mean that we're better than non-Jews. Rather, we believe that we are chosen to follow God's laws. Despite constant and mindless hatred through their turbulent history, the Jews were able to succeed and thrive in many countries. Modern Jews today are very tolerant and open-minded, save the Hasidim. Jews, unlike Christianity and Islam, don't try to shove their religion down your throat and convince you that their religion is the only true one. Jews have very rich and cultural traditions including kick ass ancient hebrew songs like Hava Nagila. A lot of the world's greatest scientists such as Albert Einstein were Jews. Jews are also used as common scapegoats and blamed for every problem under the sun. For those of you who post anti-semitic definitions of Jews I have one thing to say to you: go fuck yourselves. The fact that a population of 14 million people that make up .001% of the world drive you insane, it says a lot about you more than it does about Jews.
It's also interesting to note that Jews are criticized for being stingy but there are many wealthy Jews who give away their money to various charities. They have developed useful technology and medicines that benefit all of us around the world. Think about that before you spout your hatred.
