Israel's 'Right' to Exist

The radical Middle East asks a question: "Does Israel have the right to exist?"

Let us frame the question in another way: "Has Israel earned the right to exist".

The question of Israel's continuing existence is a matter (the question/answer) of Israel's ability (or inability) to get along with their neighbors, which has been going on for the last sixty years. The core issue is this: has Israel squandered the great gift--a proper, deserving and generous gift, I might add--that the world (through the UN) gave the Jews after the horrible Holocaust of World War II? That is the central question which lies at the core of Israel's continuing existence: Israel's obligation to itself (and the world) is to find an answer/solution to the question of neighborliness.
