Tuesday, October 26, 2010 Vatican says Israel cannot use the Bible to justify its settlements in Palestine

Multisource political news, world news, and entertainment news analysis by
Israel is denying that the legal basis is not biblical based because they aren't really "the Chosen people."

Here is the legal basis for the  state of Israel according to Palestine

But there is a legal background to the State of Israel. The Declaration of Israel's Independence, issued at Tel Aviv on May 14, 1948, recites the legal history that led to the founding of Israel as an internationally recognised sovereign state:
  • The land of Israel was the birthplace of the Jewish people. Here their spiritual, religious and national identity was formed. Here they achieved independence and created a culture of national and universal significance. Here they wrote and gave the Bible to the world.
  • In the year 1897 the First Zionist Congress, inspired by Theodor Herzl's vision of the Jewish State, proclaimed the right of the Jewish people to national revival in their own country.
  • This right was acknowledged by the Balfour Declaration of November 2, 1917, and re-affirmed by the Mandate of the League of Nations, which gave explicit international recognition to the historic connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and their right to reconstitute their National Home.
  • On November 29, 1947, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted a Resolution for the establishment of an independent Jewish State in Palestine, and called upon the inhabitants of the country to take such steps as may be necessary on their part to put the plan into effect. This recognition by the United Nations of the right of the Jewish people to establish their independent State may not be revoked. It is, moreover, the self-evident right of the Jewish people to be a nation, as all other nations, in its own sovereign State.
  • ACCORDINGLY, WE, the members of the National Council, representing the Jewish people in Palestine and the Zionist movement of the world, met together in solemn assembly today, the day of the termination of the British mandate for Palestine, by virtue of the natural and historic right of the Jewish and of the Resolution of the General Assembly of the United Nations, HEREBY PROCLAIM the establishment of the Jewish State in Palestine, to be called ISRAEL. 
The first item is, in fact, religion based. No one really knows where the
tribe of Israel origanlly came from. One theory is from Iraq. The second and third bullets are irrelevant because the Zionist congress and the Balfour Declaration in the UK were unilateral declarations.

The UN resolution, United Nations General Assembly Resolution 181
November 29, 1947 did not establish of an independent Jewish State in Palestine. The UN agreed to study the issue in the resolution. 

Israel exists because it was able to defeat Arab armies in the middle east. It is as simple as that. There is no clear legal basis for the existence of Israle. 

This is one time that we agree with the Vatican. there is no biblical basis for the existence of Israel. Even if there were such basis, the history of the region does not always dovetail well with the Bible.
