From what I have read about the region's history the non Jews were in a substantial majority right up untill the time that the UN declared the state of Israel in existance and many Arabs for various reasons fled. This was the case for around 2,000 years and the strongest claim during this period was that the Jewish population had a "continuous presence".
Can someone explain to me how a "continuous presence" gives you a right to the land when you have been a minority for most of a couple of thousand years ?
Is there another justification for Israel's historical claims to present day Israel, Jerusalem or the West Bank/Gaza.
I am interested to learn what the Jewish perspective on this is.
