Reader comment on item: New York Sun Columnist Weighs in on Creation of State of Israel

Submitted by Arnie Servais (United States), Jul 20, 2006 at 10:40

In addition to defending Israel today for what is morally and legally correct, I would add that Jews have been in the land known as Israel since the dawn of man. If there were smaller numbers of them there later on in history, it is because they were forcibly removed by warring Muslims of many varieties.

Jews have an historical right to be in these lands. One of the big lies being perpetuated is that these have always only been Arab lands with high Islamic religious significance.

Thanks, Mr. self-loathing Cohen for advancing the Iranian Mullah position.
