By Simon BezalelIn 1948, when the Israeli government decreed the creation of the Jewish state, it made the decision to divide the country into three groups, each with its own political agenda.
Those who chose to live in Israel were designated as Zionists, the “great nation” and the “Israelis”, a term which was widely regarded as derogatory.
But as the Jewish population grew and the state expanded, this designation was gradually reversed.
By the mid-1950s, when Israel was re-united with Egypt, the state’s separation of the religious and the political was being challenged.
The Israeli government was faced with a dilemma.
While there were some who had chosen to live under the protection of the Israeli state, the other two groups were also being pressured to leave.
The government could not afford to lose its Jewish majority, and had to decide which group to label.
The result was the establishment of a separate “Jewish community” to be known as the National Zionist Organization.
This group had its own agenda, and the government felt it had to accommodate both sides.
For its part, the government decided to label the other “the other” groups as Zionist, which was considered more acceptable in the eyes of the public.
At the same time, the National Zionists were trying to push the Zionist position by adopting policies that could divide the community, especially those that favoured separation from the rest of the country.
In the early 1950s, the Israeli leadership was facing the same dilemma as the majority of the community: how to deal with the growing number of non-Jews who were now joining the state.
The solution was found by dividing the Jewish minority into three separate groups, called the Sephardic, Mizrahi and Ashkenazi.
The Sephardim are the descendants of Jews who were expelled from Spain in the 15th century.
In 1948, this group was given the option to move to Israel, but in the decades that followed, the Sephadim were given a much harsher treatment than the other groups.
They were forced to live with the government in Jerusalem and the surrounding areas, which caused them to be discriminated against and isolated from the outside world.
This treatment led to a significant number of Sephardi deaths, many of which were due to malnutrition and disease.
The Mizrahs, who are descendants of Hebrew Christians, were also subjected to this discrimination, as well as being denied basic social rights.
Despite these challenges, the Jewish communities in Israel continued to maintain strong ties with their Arab neighbors, with many Sephardis living in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and the rest in the country’s Negev Desert.
In fact, the country was a strong ally of the United States during the Cold War.
But in the 1960s, a group of ultra-Orthodox Jews decided to break with the political order and formed a new political party, the Irgun-Lebanese National-Arab-Israeli coalition (ILNADAP).
This group, which called itself the “Irgun”, was the first group to break from the old political order, and it began to fight the Zionist government.
As part of its campaign, the party’s leaders called for the creation in 1948 of a “national home for the Sephadesh” (the Sephardine community), a Jewish homeland that was not separate from the land of Israel.
The idea was to unite all of the Sepharadim, as the word Sepharada translates as “the home”.
After decades of resistance, the national home was finally created in 1967.
However, for many years the group continued to oppose the creation, arguing that it would be unfair to the majority group that was already living in Israel.
They also called for Israel to be given the status of a non-Jewish state, which meant that the government had to recognize all of its Arab citizens as equal citizens.
In 1967, the prime minister, Menachem Begin, came to power.
The party formed the new government, which began the process of establishing the Jewish State of Israel in 1948.
The prime minister had promised that if the Israeli people elected him, they would create a “Jewish homeland for the Jews”.
The first “home” was established in Jerusalem.
The first “house” was officially designated as the “Jerusalem International Settlement”, and its members were allowed to live and work in Israel without restrictions.
It was also a “special zone” that was intended to allow the government to restrict immigration and restrict settlement activity.
For years, this was a popular plan with the population.
In 1967, more than 1,000 people had already moved to the new “special” zone in the West Bank.
By that time, almost 60 percent of the population was either Sephardics or Mizrahas.
But in the mid 1960s the group that had pushed for the “Jewish” homeland, the Mizraim, began to express concerns about the new policies of the government.
The group wanted
