35. That's not a very good argument.
There was no Israel as we know it now when 6 million Jews were murdered in Nazi concentration camps.

There were around 850,000 Jews living throughout Europe before the war, I believe, and now there are only around 8,000 or less. That's because the Jews were driven out of nearly every country they lived in.

The other minorities exterminated by Hitler did include the groups you mentioned but not in large numbers enough form a state.

This doesn't minimize the magnitude of the crimes committed by Hitler and his henchmen. Six million is a lot and the Jews that did escape the camps didn't have anyplace to go until Israel became a state.
