    Funny he doesn't start at 1948. Maybe it undoes his narrative.

    What is it about 1948 that you believe undoes his narrative.

    Was there not a population forcibly removed in favor of the Jews? Or was Palestine uninhabited for 2000 years before a segment was carved out for them?

    After the 1948 War, the West Bank and half of Jerusalem was Jordanian territory. Israel didn't gain control until 1968.

    By the way it would help you out to actually watch the video which covers long before 1948.

    The "East" Bank is the country of Jordan.

    People lived in Palestine. People were forced out to create Israel. And the reason was Zionism.

    It's that simple. So the real debate is Zionism. Right or wrong?

    It's wrong. It's anti-Christ.

    Now we can debate.

    That is a bunch of bunk. I suggest you check your history.

    Not an argument.

    Your video presupposes Israel's claim on a land that they hadn't possessed for 2000 years. That's the debate.

    Yea I wasn't trying to make an argument due to your own lack of info. Their lack of possession may be your debate but you do not get to set the perimeters of my view. Sorry.

    Oh, I think when one people are dispossessed in favor of another, and blood is still being spilled therefore, it's a bigger deal than just your view or mine. You are either right or wrong.

    So, what claim do the Jews have on that bit of real estate?

    Ok this is not coherent (seems to be in the water today) as it has nothing to do with what I just posted.

    Further, you keep making these tiny statements such as "one people dispossessed" which in fact mischaracterizes the situation due to lack of fact. When you attack other sovereign nations, enter world wars you need to expect that you may lose.

    Also, God gave it to them and they were dispossessed a long time ago.

    Pre-WW1, the Jewish Agency bought up property large and small from absentee landlords. That's where the initial Jewish settlements were located.

    There ya go. That's what I'm getting at. Their claim is based solely on bad theology, and so is your support thereof.

    Talking about the West Bank is specious.

    You see? Every war is a holy war.

    So then the question is, do the Jews really have rights to the land? The only place to determine it the answer is with the Scriptures.

    Of course they do not. Zionism and Jihad are sisters.
