I'd have to say Finns, then Axis 39-42, then Jews in their "independence" war.

How did i offend him? "Independence"? Or by telling him his military did an impressive job and deserves a place at a hall of fame for that?

You can ban me, you can insult me but do so in proper English will "ya"?

Israel = Jews, not Martians, not sentient dolphins but Jews so i'll stick with Jews and yes they were impressive in their "independence" war and a bit less impressive afterwards.

And its spelled sovereign so no "ya" dont need to break out the crayons, ya need to break out the English and bugger off unless i'm actually breaking any forum rules when i'm writing that Jewish military won an impressive victory in their "independence" war.

Go to political forum Ela we can have a discussion about those things there or on pm since i dont want to hijack the thread, the point is that its Israeli Jews who fought so its a Jewish victory.

Also Rorkes Drift should be here.

Not strictly true as both the US and British are more diverse in terms of religion and in a sizable number of cases the people concerned would have been atheist or agnostic where as in terms of the Arab/Israeli wars it was a muslim/jewish war.

I agree it is an unusual phrasing but I am not entirely sure it is inaccurate.

However I am going still Finnish Christians vs the Russian Orthodox war of 1940.
