Care to flesh this out sofaking?

I don't think it's ever right to take land that you don't own in the first place and give it to someone else. I think the most serious mistakes in modern history have been made by the colonial habit of random-border-drawing. I think it should have easily been foreseen that the Muslims would do anything and everything in their power to destroy a Jewish state in their midst. Hindsight and all that, but still...I think it was one of those cases where good intentions (born of guilt) led straight to hell.

I don't know how things would have panned out had Israel never been granted statehood either - it's an interesting mental exercise but moot now.
