Hi! I’m mikwee, a teen with a passion for animation, gaming and social democratic activism. I’ll try to add more to this page over time.
I believe that after the holocaust, the need for a Jewish state was clear. Unfortunately, Palestinians were harmed before and after the Declaration of Independence in many ways. However, Arabs were not that innocent either, as they started a civil war against Palestinian Jews after the UN adopted the Partition Plan in 1947, which later escalated into the Israeli War of Independence. Israel survived, but Arabs started a war again in 1967, which Israel won in six days (Hence it was called the Six Day War). Israel conquered the West Bank, Gaza, the Golan Heights and the Sinai penninsula. The latter was returned to Egypt in the late 70s, and the third was annexed by Israel, but may be returned to Syria someday. Here begins a long era of human rights violations by Israel, and terrorism by Palestinians, which includes the whole checkpoints thing, and the two Intifadas, which yes, were a bad thing. Basically, both sides are imperfect, but have a right to live in this land. Therefore, the best solution is the two-state solution, which will promise a new era of peace and prosperity for Israelis and Palestinians. You are welcome to ask more question on my talk page.
