There was justifiable reasons for us and our allies giving the Jewish people their own country after WW2. However, it was doing at the expense of the native Palestinians who had called that area home for many generations. No wonder Jews and Arabs have been at each others throats for so long! We need Israel on our side in the region, but should not endorse Israel's increasing settlements in Palestine, taking even more and more from the Palestinian people! We certainly do not need to endorse that by celebrating with the Israelites!
