arabs-48

History of the Holy Land since 1516.

In case you were wondering.

The truth is that there has never been a nation or state of Palestine in human history (nor did outnumbered and poorly-armed Holocaust survivors and Jewish refugees from Arab countries “expel” the Arabs within Israel’s borders after being attacked by them and 5 Arab states in 1947-48). 

Israel was carved out of a corner of the 400 year old Turkish Ottoman Empire by a **unanimous** vote of the League of Nations in 1922 — exactly like Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq were. 

But only tiny, democratic Israel’s existence — which is justified by deeper historical ties than any — is questioned. None of the 22, incomparably larger Arab dictatorships and colonies surrounding it ever are. That discrimination alone is proof that anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism.
