How did the Holocaust affect the establishment of the state of Israel?
It probably made some Jews even more determined than ever to establishe a state of their own. In addition to the Holocaust, there were violent antisemtic riots in Poland after the Holocaust. For many survivors in Poland, this was simply the last straw.
However, the widespread myth that the guilt-ridden Allies 'donated' Israel to the Jews as some kind of consolation for the Holocaust is nonsense. Israel had been part of the British Mandate of Palestine since the end of World War 1. Since 1920 there had been fighting there between Jews and Arabs, and the British were unable to cope ... Their mandate to rule the area was running out - and they got out.
My Grandmother and Grandfather moved there after the Holocaust. They were Holocaust survivors. Prior to the Establishment of the State of Israel, the US pressured Britain to allow 100,000 Jews held up in Cyprus to Palestine. The overwhelming majority were Holocaust Survivors. Additionally, according to Israeli Statistics, between 1948-1952, Israel absorbed 373,852 Holocaust Survivors.
Most Holocaust deniers are from one or more of the following groups: Neo-Nazis. They want to rehabilitate the Nazis. Antisemites. They want to bait and mock the Jews. Anti-Zionists. They believe that the main reason for the establishment of Israel as a state in 1948 was to console the Jews for the Holocaust and to salve the conscience of the Allies.
Zionism is the belief that the Jews should have political self-sovereignty and is the patriotic sentiment behind the Establishment of the State of Israel. It resulted in the creation of the State of Israel and is one of the leading causes in the Arab-Israeli Conflict. (Other leading causes include Arab Ethnic Nationalism, Religious Intransigence and Holy Lands, etc.)
The Jews have an undeniable presence in the land of Israel from at least 700 BCE until 70 CE and this is proven not only by the Biblical account, but from Assyrian Ruins, Babylonian documents, Hellenistic inscriptions, and Roman volumes. Jews had a continuous presence in the land from 70 CE until the present day (even though they were nowhere near the majority) even though they were forcibly deported from the territory. The fact that…
You are doing a homework challenge and you need to know 'What were the Long term consequences of The Holocaust' If anyone knows anything please write?
The consequences (long-term and short-term) of the Holocaust included: The death of about six million Jews. The disappearance of a distinctive Jewish culture in Eastern Europe. (Before the Holocaust cities like Warsaw, Vilnius and Odessa had been major Jewish cultural centres. The passing of international (United Nations) laws on genocide. It played some part in the creation of Israel as a state. Note that the notion that the guilt-ridden Allies, who had done nothing specifically…
After the war, those that had survived the Holocaust were often afraid to return to their homes. They were afraid of anti-Jewish feelings. In some cases, Jews were attacked and killed or injured. They had survived life in one camp to end up living in another camp- one for DPs (Displaced persons). When the nation of Israel was formed, many looked at Israel as a place that the Jews could call home, and they moved…
The Soviet Union, the United States, and the worldwide Jewish community were the chief supporters of the right to establish a Jewish State and led the vote to establish Israel. The Arab States and Britain were chiefly opposed to establishment of a Jewish State. After 1953, Britain became a strong ally of Israel and the Soviet Union became one of Israel's chief antaognists.
The relationship between the Holocaust and the creation of the state of Israel is more complex than is often suggested. The Holocaust was one significant factor. Another was the British Mandate to rule the area was due to expire anyway in 1948 and the United Nations had to make a decision about its future.
The Modern State of Israel has never ceased being a country since it was founded in 1948. If the question is referring to the Biblical Kingdom of Northern Israel, it was conquered by the Assyrians in 722 B.C.E. If the question is referring to the last Jewish State to fall before the establishment of the Modern State of Israel it is the Hasmonean Kingdom which fell to the Romans in 63 B.C.E.
The antisemitism all over the world especially in Europe make the Jews united in the idea of Zionism ( create a nation ), it made them think that there is no place where they can be safe and live in peace, we can say that the Holocaust and the situation of the Jews in Arab states in the 20 century was "the last straw" for the Jews .
There were two immediate effects. 1) Israel came into being as a democracy with a parliamentary style of governance. 2) The surrounding Arab Nations declared war on the nascent State of Israel, widening the contemporaneous Jewish-Arab Engagement into an international war (the Arab-Israeli War of 1948-9).

Answer The Holocaust killed countless Jews started serious racism. Answer Racism against the Jews and others has always existed. The holocaust led to the foundation of the state of Israel so they would have a homeland to be protected in. The existence of Israel has however led directly to the Middle East conflicts of the last 50 years and indirectly is partly responsible for the rise of Islamic fundamentalism. The support of the US for…
God promised "the land of milk and honey" to the Jews and their descendants; and the modern state of Israel was made a state to serve as a homeland to the Jews if something like the holocaust ever happens again. Any Jew is welcome in Israel, no Jew is turned away. Also, the fact that Israel is 75% Jewish makes it understandable that world Jewry would feel a connection.
