Zionism was inevitable.

The Jews weren't going to all stay in Europe after WWII, especially when hundreds of thousands of their ethnic brethren had migrated to the Promised Land. And Jews and Arab Palestinians weren't living like brothers either before 1947-48. There had been sporadic outbursts of violence between the two ethnic groups for decades. The fact is neither side was willing to live subjugated to the other once the British pulled out. War between the two was inevitable. The victor would get a country. The losers would become refugees. The Jews kicked butt despite being outnumbered, not once but, twice. Hence the existence of the country Israel.
