After World War II ended on September 2, 1945 many Jews who were persecuted, were left with no family, possessions, or most importantly their homes. This lead to a great conflict of where they would live and with a push from German officials they were encouraged to emigrate. The Israelis needed a safe place to rehabilitate from the holocaust and deserved to reclaim their once homeland, Israel.
Since the Jews were left homeless after World War II they have a right to reestablish Israel. “The suffering of the Jews in the Holocaust… The United Nations decision to carve out a Jewish State was motivated in large part by sympathy for the devastation inflicted on European Jews” (Guardia 155). “Palestinians have usually regarded the holocaust as a propaganda tool used to deny them their own national aspirations. They have variously denied that the holocaust ever happened, or claimed its scale was vastly exaggerated harnessed the horror as a rhetorical weapon to accuse the Israelis of behaving like Nazis in their treatment of the Palestinians” (Guardia 156). Ever since the time of the bible the Jews occupied the holy land of Israel. However they were invaded in 1076 and taken over by the Muslims. From the time of the first crusade in 1096 to the time of the fifth crusade in 1221, the Israelis fought to keep their region safe.

The Arabs should conduct their wives and children to safe areas until the fighting has died down. - Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Said, quoted in Sir Am Nakbah ("The Secret Behind the Disaster") After the United Nations Sold land to the Jewish, the Arabs became enraged. Threats were being made, even to the extent, which they were willing to go as far as destroying their own land if they could not occupy it themselves. This itself, shows that they were not capable enough to be in possession of this land, and should not be allowed to be.
If the Arabs would have settled with the United Nations decision there would not be any conflicts or war. ‘The United Nations resolution sparked conflict between Jewish and Arab groups within Palestine. Fighting began with attacks by irregular bands of Palestinian Arabs attached to local units of the Arab Liberation Army composed of volunteers from Palestine and neighboring Arab countries... The goal of the Arabs was initially to...
