The Zionist Conspiracy

1. For those of us who support Israel, Nakba Day is a day to reflect on the fanaticism, hatred and mass murder of the Palestinians, and to be thankful that their evil designs - while causing much death, terror and pain - have not managed to stop Israel from continuing to flourish.
Israel has survived Grand Mufti al-Husseini, Yasser Arafat, Sheikh Yassin, and all the other Palestinian mass murdering terrorists.
Israel has prospered despite repeated Palestinian preference for war instead of partition.
Nakba Day is a day to remember that whatever our political disagreements, we should be motivated by what is best for Israel, and stop wasting precious resources on concern for the enemy - an enemy whom, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad correctly noted today, would destroy Israel if "the smallest and shortest opportunity is given to them."
2. The Palestinians do not observe a special day of mourning for Israel's capture in 1967 of Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and Gaza. The "Nakba" refers to 1948, to the establishment of Israel, and to those who became refugees as a result of the War of Independence that Arabs forced Israel to wage.
Jews prayed for a return to Israel for nearly 2,000 years. Without in any way suggesting that Palestinian claims to the Land of Israel are morally, historically or legally comparable to Israel's - they certainly are not - there is little reason to believe that Palestinians will not remember what they call the "Nakba" for many generations to come.
