If the state of Israel exists, it is primarily because Jews from all over the world, identifying with the Zionist movement, established a new society in the country. We can discuss ad infinitum the conditions in which the Jewish presence was established and the impact on the Arab population of the country. But it is a fact that today two people live in this land, each with a history, a culture and a collective will. The legitimacy of the Israeli state, like the legitimacy of the future Palestinian state, is based on the right of both peoples to decide their own destiny.
