You could just as easily make the same argument about "Palestinians". The Ottoman empire broke up. The Jews who lived their desired sovereignty. Nobody has to validate their own existence.

Indeed they do if they attempt steal another peoples land , culture, identity, etc. The Palestinians of course have been living in Palestine continuously for thousands and thousands of years. The Jews, as we all know, invaded once for a coupe hundred years and were then throw out and then again in 1948 Jewish Europeans flooded into Palestine and attempted again to steal the land. They will forever have to justify their attempts at stealing Palestine from the Palestinians.
It's simple really.

I'm sorry the history of that land is anything but simple.

Thousands and thousands of years? The land has passed through many hands many times, and a country called Palestine has never existed.

After teh breakup of the Ottoman Empire you had a conflict between Jews and Arabs in the former Ottoman Empire. Arabs refused to acknowledge the borders created by the UN in 1949, and war broke out. Following that war both Jews and arabs were dispalced in the former Ottoman Empire. The value and landmass of the land the Jews gave up far exceeds the total value and landmass of modern day Israel.

Once again I point out the fact that most Jews in Israel are not from Europe nor have they ever lived in Europe. I wonder why this concept is so difficult to grasp, and people keep stating it over and over again. It's simply not true.

The true complicated history is a little bit harder to grasp than the black and white fairy tale, but please try.

Another boilerplate Zionist canard. "Oh it's such a complicated history. It can't possibly be understood by anybody other than Jewish historical revisionists."

No actually it's pretty well documented and easily verifiable. Furthermore the history of the last 60 years is very well documented. Again it's high time you read your fellow tribesman Noam Chomsky on this matter. His research is exhaustive.

The U.N or Covenant of the League of Nations as it was called at that time (made up primarily of White peoples countries after the war) carved up the middle east according to their interests and not the interests of the people who lived there. The people of Palestine (Philistine thousands of years ago)fought for their independence from both the ottomans and the europeans and were sold down the river by Europeans who were pressured largely by American and British Jews to give European Jews half of Palestine! Lets recall Uganda was offered first to which the powerful Jews of England and America balked and demanded Palestine be given to them.

Naturally when the Europeans foisted hundreds of thousands of white Jews on Palestine everyone in the region was suspect. When these same Jews then claimed the hosting county as their own the Arabs refused to accept this colonialism in light of the alleged mandate of the U.S and naturally refused to acknowledge the made up state of "Israel".

It's really not that hard to understand why they would be pissed to this day and why they resist oppression and genocide by these westerners who stole their country and killed their relatives.

As has already been stated the Philistines have lived there for thousands and thousands of years in an unbroken lineage where as people practicing Judaism and claiming the country as their own exclusively has only existed since it was made up in 1948 out of thin air.
At that same time lets all notate that the current country of Palestine was also demarcated and it was the Jews from Europe who tried to steal it and do so to this day by annexing more and more territory with every year that the U.N is hijacked by the Zionist sympathizing U.S and it's Zionist henchmen. Again well documented - read your Chomsky

The country of Palestine exists and is under universally accepted ILLEGAL OCCUPATION.

It's a nice fairy tale you're telling yourself but a rather dangerous one. As Zizek points out "there is no genocide without poetry."
Your fanciful poetic tales about the myth of Jews is directly responsible for the genocide of the Palestinians, Lebanese, Syrians etc.

It's time for you to sack up like so many other Jews are doing these days and accepting the dreadful truth about your own identity and disavow your murderous ways and the sullying in the name of Judaism by a few rotten apples such as your self who still cheer on Apartheid and ethnic cleansing.

Wow, really? Philistines? You're making the claim that Palestinians are Philistines? The Philistines stopped existing as a distinct people around 1000 BC.

Since that time the land has been ruled by Jews, Romans, Turks, Arabs, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Crusaders, Kurds, etc...

You also need to do some history on who the Philistines were. They were invaders from Cyprus who arrived in the 12th century BC. They also never ruled what is now Israel. They ruled only the area around the Gaza Strip.

Please show me this unbroken lineage and documentation of it? Don't you find it a little bit odd that the Palestinians don't speak a Philistine language or practice a philistine culture? They speak an arabic language and practice an arab culture.

What you also fail to mention is that the refugee crisis didn't start until after the war broke out. You also fail to mention the jewish refugees from the arab lands.

Historical evidence shows a Jewish majority in ISrael from 1000 BC to about 200-400 AD when they were forced out by Romans. Genetic evidence shows that modern day Jews are directly desended from these people.

Once again, if you can provide me with any links to actual proof that disputes my claims, I am all ears.

I know some of you don't like "facts" or "scientific studies", but here you go again anyway:
