This guy Ashish is as hypocritical as they come. Note this: "past historical
injustices are not a justification for further injustices", and then he goes
on to took about the Jews being persecuted for centuries, and that's why
they
have a right to Palestine. Mr. Hanwadikar, the jews had been away from
Palestine for more than a millenium. Have you read the early works of
Zionist
thinkers? Have you read of the Zionist principle of the "conquest of labour"
at the turn of the 20th century which was implicitly aimed towards
colonizing
Palestine? Unforunately, in pragmatic terms, its become too late to talk
about
what happened between 1904 and 1948, because the historical writing is as
biased (if not more) as that on any other "disputed" territory in the world.
But you should maybe read some of the primary sources in the early 20th
century to see just how Israel happened to come into existence. And note
that
i'm not even talking about the suppression of palestinian identity or other
violent acts of repression that have taken place after 1948.
