Giving Israel Germany??

Reader comment on item: Palestine 1948: War, Escape and the Emergence of the Palestinian Refugee Problem

Submitted by Dale R. Yancy (United States), Dec 21, 2005 at 08:25

the Jews would NEVER have accepted a settlement of land in Germany. In the 1890s, the Jews were first offered land in Africa as a homeland, but thankfully, Theodore Hertzel, the father of the Zionist movement rejected this offer. The ONLY land that the Jews could return to would be the land that is RIGHTFULLY theirs. The Jews have settled in Israel long before it was labelled Palestine by the Romans around 85 BC. Israel was promised to Abraham and began to be settled by the Jews around 3000 BC --thousands of years before there were any Palestinian Muslims. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is the One who owns the title deed to Israel and He has chosen (like it or not) to give it to the Jews as their homeland.
