On the flip side if it weren't for Israel we wouldn`t have the dictators using it as an excuse to promote draconian and militaristic agendas. @Cajun: as @Crakr mentioned, Jews have been persicuted for centuries. With or without a state of Israel, eh? There was no "Israel" in 1942, when the Holocaust really got running, eh?
The Sheiks and Kings of the Arabic Nations will blame ANYONE who`s convenient. They`ve been doing it for centuries with NO Israel at all.
Re-read your statement, it sounds like you blame Israel for the hatred of the Arab world! I KNOW you don`t! I`m just saying it kinda looks that way...
And, sadly, there are some who actually believe that if Israel were "dissolved" it would all be doves & flowers from Islam! (In a pigs eye!)

Cajun: Not all the Jews migrated away, many stayed even though they were oppressed for doing so. Just as there are many Jews still left in Russia and Germany even today. They didn't leave entirely.
