Neither existed: the Jews through UN decree financed by an international movement created theirs by supplanting the Palestinians; a concrete reality..."
Legitimately achieved and affirmed by force of arms (and what a collection of weapons they were!) in 1948.
"...They now seek to use arms largely given to them by a great power through the corruption of that great power's political process to deny the same to the Palestinians..."
Hardly necessary are the F-16s, F-15s and Apaches to do so. Piper Cubs with rockets would easily suffice. Your notion of "corruption" is my notion of advise and consent. The influence achieved stems from the ballot box. Naturally as a consistent loser in that regard it is resented and, therefore, misrepresented by you.
"...Both myths, one made real through the destruction of the first for its own existence. The return of the Jews to their own state, or an invasion. Take your pick. I say its not a return but an invasion. They were granted lands by international decree, won some more through defensive war, I begrudge them not one inch of those..."
So you acknowledge the boundaries established after 1973?
"...But the lands they took through aggression are as illegitimate as those taken by any other aggressor state."
It shall remain impossible for you to make a case of an aggressor state when conflict continues by the unpreparedness of those defeated to recognize lands gained by "defensive war". Your case, as presented above, is simply the other side of Ben's coin-and at least as pathetic.
