Your analogy and conclusions are completely invalid and do not grip reality in any way.
Right to take a land? What is it? Did the Brits have a right to take over North America? Did the Spanish have a right to take over South America? Who gave the English people their right to occupy Australia and New Zealand? Who gave the Anglo-Saxons their right to occupy Britain, and the Francs to take over Gaul?
The area of Israel was occupied time and again by different people and different empires. Who gave the Assyrian and Babylonian empires their right to occupy it? And what about the Persians, the Hellenists, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Arabs, the Crusaders, the Mamluks, the Ottomans? Who gave them their right to occupy the land?
Let us all forget for a moment that the Jewish settlement in Israel was confirmed formally by the UN as a state, and that it was backed up by the British Mandate of Palestine (who was, for itself, a formal and authorized mandatory, backed up by the League of Nations), you cannot ignore the simple fact is that no one "invaded" to someone else's home, because it never was "his home".
The Arabs of Israel (Palestinians, that, by the way, invaded the land just like every other nation before and after them), just like the Jews of Israel, just like the Christians of Israel, lived since ever under someone else's rule. They never had a sovereign country; their sovereignty was never breached, because they never had one!
As for the killing, I'm sorry to break this one, but the Arabs are not less guilty then the Jews, maybe even more. Just open a history book and read for yourself: 1920 riots, Jaffa riots of 1921, 1929 riots, Arab revolt of 1936-1939…
Practically all of the wars that Israel had since 1948 (including) were started by its "peaceful" neighbors.
Why do we call the Palestinians terrorists? That is your interpretation. I don't like generalizations and I don't call innocent people "terrorists".
And still, the truth is that the tactics of Hezbollah, Hamas, Fatach, the Islamic Jihad and the rest of the Palestinian "freedom fighters" target Israeli civilians. They, as opposed to the Israeli army, aim their attacks at innocent men, women and children.
How would you call a man who bombs himself in a club, killing 21 teenagers (in the range of 14-19 years of age) and injuring 120 more? "Freedom fighter"? I wouldn't say…

the objective of organising a state with a Jewish majority is to furnish a secure haven for Jews, this is because historic previous has shown that Jews were persecuted as a minority very nearly everywhere. To "stay among the human beings of all countries" is a most suitable idea, yet sorry, been there, performed that. the idea of a Jewish majority isn't a racist one, it truly is a reaction to anti-Jewish racism. Why do not YOU "stay among the human beings of all countries"? And why do not you want to renowned that the Arabs began the violence hostile to the Jews in 1920?

Of course not and if they one day start by admitting that their zion created a hell for somebody else Israel is much more likely to know peace. When they cut out the old tried and failed myths ie, There are no Palestinians or A land without people for a people without land. Of course I expect the usual tirade of anti semite comments .That is what people do when they are not up to some critical thinking.

We call Hamas terrorist because they use terrorist tactics. They deliberately target the most defenseless and innocent (children, for instance) for death, instead of engaging the military. This is terrorism, and people who do it are terrorists, no matter what their motives.
If you remember, in 1967 the Israelis took over the land that was not theirs because attacks were being made on their country from there. They didn't want the land, they only wanted to be safe from attack.

Israel is the only Jewish state in the whole world. The Arabs have 22 states. The Arabs are not wiling to accept a Jewish state in their midst.
Well, the questioner makes no bones about his anti-Semitism or about his 100-percent support of Islamic terror. The same terror that constitutes the greatest threat to the survival of the free world.
Al least if he were in possession of the facts . . . . He might know that "The fact is that today's Palestinians are immigrants from the surrounding nations! I grew up well knowing the history and origins of today's Palestinians as being from Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Christians from Greece, Muslim Sherkas from Russia, Muslims from Bosnia, and the Jordanians next door. The civil and tribal wars between Yemenites (from Yemen) and Kessites (from Banu Kais of Saudi Arabia) ... are well known among Palestinians.
"My grandfather, who was a dignitary in Bethlehem, almost lost his life by Abdul Qader Al-Husseni (the leader of the Palestinian revolution) after being accused of selling land to Jews. He used to tell us that his village Beit Sahur (The Shepherds Fields) in Bethlehem County was empty before his father settled in the area with six other families. The town has now grown to 30,000 inhabitants."
