Why do we sympathise with Israel?

To the uninitiated/ignorant/uninformed:

Those living comfortably in their homes/land/country of their forefathers wont understand,

Wont know the pain of being homeless.

To have been overrun just because they were in the minority (in numbers.)

The Kashimirs, the Sikhs, Sindhis, the Punjabis, the Bengalis, Assamese et. did. we lost our land!!

Land of our forefathers... all gone!!!

Similar to the History of the Jews.

Only difference being the Jews came back to reclaim their land.

So the Hindus (only those who have had similar loss or have read History) feel an affiliation/admiration etc.

Especially for their patriotism, courage and resilience etc.
