173. Thank you for the thoughtful answer
Edited on Mon Sep-08-03 11:57 AM by calm_blue_ocean
1. we do agree that the selfishness of the European powers prevented Israel from being put in Germany (where the Jewish people suffered their greatest oppression ever).

2. I did not know about the US limited support Israel in its early days, or about the debate in Britain. It sounds like these countries were more focussed on the question "Jewish-stet-or-no-Jewish-state" rather than the question "where-is-it-fairest-to-put-the-Jewish-state."

3. As far as the embryonic state activities you helpfully cite, although these activities involved nowhere near the number of Jewish people that the Holocaust did. Also, it is quite unusual to see anybody on this board supporting any sort of embryos. I admire your courage in that.

4. Funny how when anybody on this board proposes that Israel be moved the debate devolves into false accusations regarding the dissolution of Israel.
