A legal and internationally recognized state created by the United Nations in 1948 as a result of the 1,878 year old documented history of extreme and senselss hatred against the Jewish people following the Roman destruction of their capital, Jerusalem, in 70 AD.
The purpose of modern day Israel is to protect and provide a home and safe-haven to Jewish people.

A small Jewish state in the middle east that drives anti-semites insane... especially middle class honky commies and fascists in Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand who hide behind the so-called "Palestinians" ( actually Egyptian and Jordanian squatters and Arab gypsy outcasts)to camouflage their rabid but impotent anti-Jewish rage. The so-called "Palestinians" are also a cause celebre among Arab grievance pimps worldwide despite the fact that Arab cuntries treat the so-called "Palestinians" far worse than the Israelis could ever imagine doing.
Israel is a nice country that is located in a very bad neighborhood. Sometimes they have to take matters into their own hands and break some heads in order to survive. The rest of the world hates that fact because Jews aren't supposed to fight back.

A really tiny country surronded by countries that either hate it or do not like it very, very much, but they have held on to that same stip of land for thousands of years.

"A land flowing with milk and honey..."
Shemot (Exodus) 3:8

Eretz Israel (Land of Israel) is a small, narrow, semi-arid piece of land on the southeastern coastline of the Mediterranean Sea. It entered history some 35 centuries ago when the Jewish people forsook their nomadic way of life, settled in the Land and became a nation. Over the years, the Land was known by many names - Eretz Israel; Zion, one of Jerusalem's hills which came to signify both the city and the Land of Israel as a whole; Palestine, derived from Philistia, and first used by the Romans; the Promised Land; and the Holy Land, to mention but a few. Mountains and plains, fertile fields and deserts are often minutes apart.
Now Israel, listen to the rules and laws that I am teaching you to do, so that you will remain alive and come to occupy the land that G-d, Lord of your fathers, is giving you."
Dvarim (Deuteronomy) 4:1

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 country that exists, for better or for worse. Fix it. Be proactive, don't be ignorant.
Israel: "Since I already exist, and it doesn't look like i'm going anywhere, can't we just attempt to devote our time to solving my social problems and educating the Arab and Jewish youth to break the cycle of hate and ignorance?"
