Israel has been the source of controversy from the very first day it was brought into being. I wonder what the region would be like if England, France, Russia, The US and others had kept their grubby hands to themselves. It seems to me that where we are now HAS to have been influenced by many decades of interference, intervention, occupation. I am no historical scholar and poorly informed on the history here, so I am only voicing my personal feeling on the matter. I am perfectly happy to be enlightened or corrected.

You're right, the past has shaped everything we do and ignoring its influence is rather like seeing an estuary without recognizing the river that leads into it.

The decision to give the nascent state of Israel land that had long been occupied by Palestinians was always going to be a stumbling block to going forward, and the recently discovered reserves of oil in the Middle East only added to that complication as the West came to see Israel as its only natural ally in what then came to be such a geopolitically vital region.

Mind you we have no resentment towards Jewish people. But the Zionist that now rule that people and country. Many Jewish people are against what that government have been doing for decades.
