    Why not? No one appears able to stop them.

    If they are going to realize their dream of owning every square foot of

    Palestinian land, and expelling all Arabs from within their borders, they

    are going to have to expand settlements continuously for at least the

    next fifty years.

    They are engaged in ethnic cleansing at such a slow pace that they are

    not being called on it.

    Your source is suspect. If it become issued by "The nationwide and international kinfolk branch on the Palestinian Liberation employer" then there is honestly no reason we ought to always settle for a be conscious it says. only to grant you a small representation of inaccuracy: "... the intifada which began following the former Israeli best Minister Ariel Sharon’s visit with 2000 squaddies and police..." honestly, Sharon become no longer observed by 2000 squaddies yet by a small crew of police for protecting applications (that extra probable numbered 20). (He become also no longer best Minister on the time, despite the undeniable fact that it truly is a minor quibble.) the reason the report words it like this because it is going properly with the parable that Ariel Sharon's visit began the intifada. They make it sound like he got here with an "invasion stress" of 2000 squaddies. the reality is that he did honestly no longer something incorrect or maybe aggressive in vacationing the Temple Mount. It become even cleared in the previous with the Muslim Temple Mount non secular authorities. So who began it? properly, it only so takes position that Fatah (that could be Arafat's crew contained in the PLO) used that as an excuse to commence the intifada. sure, the very similar those who issued the report you've now stated. the reality is that Israel is threatened by particular terrorist communities such as Hamas. Israel has the right to do something about it. That something might want to include deadly stress. when you consider that those terrorist communities exist among a civilian inhabitants, that is by no potential "clean" and civilians do get killed. yet they are by no potential deliberately concentrated. the important difficulty why those info are frequently bogus (with the exception of the raw numbers which will properly be pretend accordingly) is because they decline to think concerning the precise circumstances in which innocents are killed. e.g. if there's a firefight between Israeli forces and Hamas fighters and contained in the crossfire an threat free receives killed, do you imagine that threat free, who will become a "variety" of their record, may have the particular info? And in case you sense that Israel is taking the incorrect plan of action, then tell me, what do imagine is the proper plan of action?

  • Should India tell Britain there is no such thing as a British Empire? Israel should tell the world there is no such place as the occupied territories. There is a place called "Judea and Samaria". Israel is going to build 3000 new homes there. Jews were not welcome in the promised land 3000 years ago except by God and His permission is all the permission they need.

    Israel never should have built any home in occupied territories.

    I understand that the 1948 borders drawn (illegally?) by the UN were crazy & left areas of Israel very vulnerable to incursion & violence, so controlling buffer zones for purposes of self-defense isn't entirely negative (and has been done in other parts of the world all thru history), but those areas are NOT part of Israel and should NOT be used as such. If one nation administers an occupied area, it should be administered on behalf of its inhabitants/citizens. When Israel builds homes & communities in occupied territories, they are declaring those areas to belong to them and they do NOT.

    Imagine if the US had renamed portions of Iraq during the US Occupation.

    Imagine if, centuries from now, somebody tried claiming those renamed portions and told the world that the land was always theirs and never Iraq's and that Iraqis were illegally occupying it.

    (And imagine if Iraqis didn't take kindly to that bullsh*t and fought back for control of it.)

    Now imagine if people were dumb enough to believe that crap and side against the Iraqi people.

    If you can imagine that, then you can understand what the Roman Empire did to ancient Israel when they renamed the parts of it called Judah and Samaria as 'Syria Palaestina'; which is where the modern word 'Palestine' derives from.

    And you can understand the Arab-Israeli conflict over Palestine as well.

    Specifically, how the world's gotten it backwards by siding against Israel by trying to deny Israel doing what it wants with its own land.

    That's not a popular opinion. But it's one based on facts, not Palestinian b.s. that Palestinian leaders publicly admitted to:

    "The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism.

    For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan."

    -Zahir Muhsein, Palestine Liberation Organization Executive Committee member, 1977.

    Gaza's interior minister, Fathi Hammad said "every Palestinian in Gaza and throughout Palestine can prove his Arab roots - whether from Saudi Arabia, from Yemen, from anywhere" and then goes on to say that "half the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis."

    Yes, Israel should build as many homes as they want since Israel owns Judea and Sumaria (West Bank). Jerusalem belongs to Israel as well. Only those who oppose Israel take the opposite stance which is wrong, misguided and flawed.
