That's when they were attacked in 1967 by three sovereign nations. Israel has repeatedly agreed to a Palestinian state. They agreed to the UN resolution to this effect after WWII. They agreed with Governor Storrs on this topic right from the beginning. The Palestinians have absolutely NEVER agreed to the existence to an Israeli state. Your argument is not applicable to the actual situation there. If Israel left Gaza and the West Bank tomorrow, they would still be bombed. Remember, they were bombed before they were ever there, and the terrorists have explicitly said that they will continue bombing so long as Israel exists.

"If we don't want to get bombed, we should get out of other people's lands"? This is utterly meaningless. We were never in Afghanistan, and they bombed us. Every military base we have in the world exists solely with the permission of the host country. Name one that doesn't. One! This is just empty rhetoric from someone whose anti-americanism is utterly baseless.
