A bunch of white European converts created Israel after terrorizing British peacekeeping troops. One of the chief terrorists was Menachim Begin, who posed as a rabbi in order to carry out car bombings. And people talk about jihadists!
The U.S. inherited the mess by getting involved in the Suez Crisis of 1956 and the Brits were happy to hand over the problem (I say clever of them but I hate that my tax money is involved).
The U.S. owes Israel a good swift kick in their collective butts for tying us up in their own mess.
And Israel is NOT the only "democracy" in the Middle East (there are certain criteria you must meet even if your family's been there thousands of years).
Turkey has been a secular, constitutional republic since the 1920s. Ask any member of the Turkish military about their job and you'll find they are more loyal to their constitution than most Christian American military members.
So, stop using the "only democracy" lie.

Do you mean historically? Originally, or Modern state? The modern state was formed because of the 2 world wars. Israel was under Turkish control for 400 years prior to the WW1. They did not use it, and had cut down all the trees for their own usage and turned the whole land into a desert. In the late 1800's only 16% of the land was inhabited. The Jewish people started going back there from Russia because of the Pograms (persecution and destruction by the Russians) In 1918 Israel was liberated by General Allenby, and so after the war the League of Nations gave England to right to divide up the land between the Arabs and the Jewish people. They alloted 80% of the land to the Arabs and called it TransJordan because it was across the Jordan and 20% went to the Jews. Thed Jews were content, the Arabs refused to accept it. Arab persecution continued until the 2nd WW. England still occupied the land. After the second WW England was frustrated becasue they could not get agreement witht he Arabs so they left, turned all thier weapons and government offices to the Arabs, and left the two sides to fight it out. After the War of Independence Israel came out winning the war and had their own state in 1948. Ver quick overview but that is where the modern state of Israel was created from.

Basically some 4000 years ago God called a man named Abram out of his pagan society and revieled Himself to Abram as the one and only True God. God had a plan to redeem the sins of all mankind and that was for His Son Jesus the Christ to be born of a Virgin from a set apart group of people. Some say Abram (Abraham) was the originator of Israel. Technically the name Israel was given to Jacob (Gen 32:28). He was the father of 12 sons. These 12 sons are the originators of the 12 tribes of Israel. Through these 12 tribes of Israel God established a Holy Nation with his laws and guidelines that was unique and seperated from the rest of the world. The entire purpose of the nation of Israel WAS to be the seperate nation Jesus was born from. Des the USA owe them anything? I say no.

God himself gave the lands of Palestine (and further beyond its boundaries) to his chosen people, the JEWS.
The USA doesn't "owe" Israel anything, but they are our strongest, lets' face it, probably our ONLY ally in the area.

Abraham was the father of Isaac, who was the father of Jacob. Jacob's name was later changed to Israel. The nation of Israel are his descendants. God gave them the land (much more than what they now have) and they lost and regained part of it. Christians support the Jewish people as they are God's chosen people. Christians were grafted in through Jesus' sacrifice.

Israel, is the final unsolved colony interior the worldwide. The UN is making an attempt to remedy that colony conflict for the final 60 years. The UN proposed the two state answer: One state for the close by and one state for the colonists. however the colonist needed countless the land like ninety% of it and the close by needed what the UN say replaced into theirs.
