An old Jewish guy in Oz. Tired of the fallacies surrounding the I/P issue We were given the territory for a homeland state, with more than enough room for every Jewish person on the planet, even today Since proclaiming its frontiers in the May 15th 1948 in the Israeli Government plea for international recognition, Israel has illegally acquired by force and occupied more and more territory outside of it's proclaimed and recognized Sovereign territory. None of which has ever been legally ceded to or legally annexed to Israel by any agreement or legal instrument The occupied have a right to violent resistance against armed citizens of the Occupying Power. However, no one has a right or excuse for committing acts of terrorism against innocent civilians. To that end: I condemn all forms of terrorism, murder and any other harmful crime by any individual, group, organization or state and; condemn any government, individual or organization who purposefully encourages the illegally settlement of territories held under occupation thereby purposefully endangering its own citizens by using them to create illegal facts on the ground Today the State of Israel continues to encourage Israeli civilians to create illegal settlements, illegal facts on the ground, breaking law that was adopted by the UN and International Comity in large part because of the treatment of our Jewish fellows under the Nazis. Law adopted to protect all civilians including those of an Occupying Power from the expected violent consequences of occupying another people and their territory Israel demands the swap of non-Israeli territory for non-Israeli territory so it can keep non-Israeli territory in a future settlement. There is no legal basis for the demand nor is there for the disarmament of a future Palestinian state. All states have equal right to self defense. Likewise, there is no legal basis for the demand to be recognized as the Jewish state. Israeli demands have no legal precedence or validity The Palestinians have no legal, moral or ethical obligation to forgo any of their legal rights. Negotiations mean only one thing, the Palestinians forgoing legal rights so Israel can benefit Were Israel to adhere to the law, it can easily protect itself, grow and prosper. It'd have no UN resolutions against it. No need to continuing to corrupt US politicians in order to maintain a UNSC veto vote. No need to lie to and endanger its citizens I've received too many threats for opposing Israel's policies towards the Palestinians, broken windows, graffiti'd walls, hate mail, I'd prefer to remain anonymous, if that's OK. Who I am is irrelevant. Reliable information is essential to informed dialogue towards resolving the I/P issue. Propaganda has no place in struggle for peace

    • @ JeffB March 4, 2017, 1:30 pm

      "As did the Khmer Rouge. They didn’t kill Vietnamese who agreed to resettle back in Vietnam. They only killed those Vietnamese who wouldn’t resettle."

      Strange I've never advocated Israelis who refuse to resettle back in Israel be killed. Why do idiots for Zionist colonization need to make false accusations?

      //Care to give an example of where I’ve advocated genocide on anyone … thx I’ll wait//

      "See above. You advocated their positions in the same post you were arguing you weren’t agreeing with them."

      Your false accusations aren't evidence. You haven't given any evidence.

      " And 1992 was after 1945. The Cambodians are still at it."

      A) Vietnam didn't illegally annex Cambodia or claim Cambodia as its own B) Doesn't change the illegality of Israelis settling in non-Israeli territories held under Israeli Occupation.

    • @ JeffB March 4, 2017, 9:52 am

      "Your point that those occupations don’t involve settlement would if true simply emphasize the point that occupation and population migration are mostly distinct phenomena."

      Israelis aren't 'migrating' to territories in the West Bank. They're illegally settling

      " Cambodia had experienced substantial Vietnamese migration since the 1830s ..."

      I believe the 1830's was more than a century BEFORE 1945 http://mondoweiss.net/2017/03/finders-keepers-there/#comment-175586

      "The Khmer Rouge shared your politics regarding illegal settlers and genocided the community"

      Strange I've never advocated genocide on anyone. I do advocate that Israel to resettle its illegal settlers back in Israel.

      False accusations are against the basic tenets of Judaism. That you're willing to falsely accuse on behalf of the Jewish State is really quite bizarre. It shows folk just how low ZioNutters are willing to go. Keep up the good work

      "Vietnam responded quite reasonably by invading Cambodia and establishing a occupation government. They put an end to all the Khmer Rouge genocidal policies"

      You seem to be saying someone ought invade Palestine and end Israel's slow motion genocidal policies

      "Far from not being a good analogy The Khmer Rouge are a terrific example of what your sort of anti-settlement philosophy looks like in victory"

      Care to give an example of where I've advocated genocide on anyone ... thx I'll wait

      "Like Native Tribes in America who retain their claim to their ancestral land – I have the same claim to my."

      The Native Tribes are from and in America. The Ukraine was never in Palestine or Israel.

      BTW The Kingdom of David only lasted a few years and in all likelihood Jews were never a majority in the region. The far greater part of Jewish history in the region has been as Palestinian Jews.

      @ JeffB March 2, 2017, 7:33 pm

      "... this is new. I guess I’ll try responding.

      JeffB: “I do support a belief in the necessity of states to occupy territory though I think this happens far too often.”

      talknic: Start naming those since 1945 when the UN codified International Law regarding the illegality of acquiring territory by any coercive measure

      My point above is that once territory is acquired it isn’t occupied. "

      It is inadmissible to acquire territory by war/force/any coercive measure. It may be restored. However, Israel has never had any territory taken in order to restore it Professor Stephen M. Schwebel – (NB: ‘Professor’ not at the time of his statement a Judge of International Court of Justice) as quoted by

      Mr. HERZOG (Israel):
      99. The state of the law has been correctly summarized by Elihu Lauterpacht, a distinguished authority on international law, as follows:
      “… territorial change cannot properly take place as a result of the unlawful use of force. But to omit the word `unlawful’ is to change the substantive content of the rule and to turn an important safeguard of legal principle into an aggressor’s charter. For if force can never be used to effect lawful territorial change, then, if territory has once changed hands as a result of the unlawful use of force, the illegitimacy of the position thus established is sterilized by the prohibition upon the use of force to restore the lawful sovereign. This cannot be regarded as reasonable or correct.”

      restore the lawful sovereign.
      A) It is inadmissible to ‘acquire’ territory by war, aggressive/illegal OR defensive/legal. The reason the phrase does not include an ‘aggressive/illegal’ or ‘defensive/legal’ qualification is because it means ANY war. The inhabitants might not have voted for or even been able to vote for the regime in power at the start of the conflict. The UN Charter stipulates ‘self determination’. Not the determination of a conquering power.

      "Which is one of the reasons I think the UN’s position is nonsensical."

      What a supporter of the illegal actions of the State of Israel thinks isn't very convincing

      " However some occupations I agree with:

      1) USA occupation of the Dominican Republic to stop a civil war and ensure elections in 1965."
      Does the US claim it? Do US citizens illegally settle there?

      "2) Israeli occupation of the Sinai regarding Egypt’s aggression 1967"

      A ) Israel's attack was preemptive. There was no Egyptian aggression, no UNSC condemnation of Egypt's self defensive actions,
      B) As shown by the Egypt/Israel Peace Treaty, under UNSC res 242 /338 Israel was required to withdraw from all Egyptian territories

      "3) South African occupation of parts of Angola to defend against attack 1975"

      Did they claim it for Sth Africa? Did Sth Africans illegally settle in Angola?

      4) Vietnam’s occupation of Cambodia to stop a genocide 1979

      Did they claim it for Vietnam? Did Vietnamese citizen illegally settle in Cambodia?

      "5) USA occupation of Grenada to liberate communist conquered territory 1983"

      Did the US claim Grenada for itself? Did US citizens illegally settle in Grenada?

      "6) NATO occupation of Kosovo to stop a genocide 1999"

      "7) Russian occupation of Crimea to advance self determination, 2014"

      There was a referendum (per the UN notions of self determination) in Russia's favor

      "The UN has mostly been opposed to most of these most shockingly the Vietnamese occupation of Cambodia. So they aren’t only wrong in the case of Israel"

      Unlike the others, Israel is illegally claiming non-Israeli territories as its own and it is assisting Israeli citizens to illegally settle in non-Israeli territories

    • @ JeffB March 2, 2017, 2:35 pm

      "... I’ve never been in favor of “theft”."

      Strange your whole argument attempts to justify it

      "I don’t consider a government regulating property within its domain including exercising eminent domain (at an above market price) to be theft though."

      You're talking about 'real estate' not territory and your talking about real estate within the territory of a state. Territory belongs to all its legitimate inhabitants whether they own/lease/rent real estate or live under a bridge. Np Palestinian territory belongs to Israel.

      " I’d love NJ to eminent domain my property pocket the equity some state excess profits while avoiding all the costs of sale."

      Your property is in the territory of NJ. No territory outside of Israel's borders belongs to Israel.

      " ... You want to extend citizenship to massive numbers of people born in other states"

      RoR is for citizens of states who're displaced from those states

      "I do support a belief in the necessity of states to occupy territory though I think this happens far too often."

      Start naming those since 1945 when the UN codified International Law regarding the illegality of acquiring territory by any coercive measure

      "As far as Israel as you know I don’t consider Israel to be an occupying power. "

      Tough. Israel is a UN Member. The UN tells us Israel is in breach of International Law, the UN Charter and relative Conventions

      "In Gaza it is not exercising enough control to qualify, "

      The UN tells us you're in denial

      "I’d consider Israel to be a warring power against the quasi-state of Gaza."

      So Israel is bound by the laws of war and occupation. Israel controls Palestinian airspace, its territorial waters, all of its border crossings including under the 2005 agreement and the Egypt/Israel Peace Treaty, those between Gaza and Egypt. Israel controls who and what and when anything or anyone passes through all of Gaza's crossings. Only an Occupying Power has those rights

      " While in the West Bank and Golan it is clearly making permanent claim and thus is the governing power not an occupying power"

      You're quite delusional UNSC Resolution 476 is one of at least EIGHT reminders of the 21st May 1968 UNSC Res 252
      267 (1969) of 3 July 1969, 271 (1969) of 15 September 1969, 298 (1971) of 25 September 1971, 446 (1979) of 22 March 1979, 452 (1979) 20 July 1979, 465 (1980) of 1 March 1980, 476 June 30 1980 and 478 August 20 1980. None of which have anything to do with race or religion. They’re based on the UN Charter, International Law and the GC’s, all of which Israel obliged itself to uphold. Alas it hasn’t.

      Go spread your stupid ZIoTheories somewhere else, your sh*t doesn't schtick here

    • It's another stupid distraction.

      Like 'we made the desert bloom' ... 'there's no such thing as a Palestinian people' ... 'there was no Palestinian state', 'who was first in the region' is just another nonsense argument, completely irrelevant to the borders of the State of Israel and that state's illegal activities in and illegal claims to, territories outside of its borders since they were proclaimed effective at 00:01 May 15th 1948 http://www.trumanlibrary.org/whistlestop/study_collections/israel/large/documents/newPDF/49.pdf

      May 22nd 1948 Israeli Government statement

      On May 22, 1948 UNSC S/766
      Question (a): Over which areas of Palestine do you actually exercise control at present over the entire area of the Jewish State as defined in the Resolution of the General Assembly of the 29th November, 1947?
      "In addition, the Provisional Government exercises control over the city of Jaffa;
      Northwestern Galilee, including Acre, Zib, Base, and the Jewish settlements up to the Lebanese frontier; a strip of territory alongside the road from Hilda to Jerusalem; almost all of new Jerusalem; and of the Jewish quarter within the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem.
      The above areas, outside the territory of the State of Israel, are under the control of the military authorities of the State of Israel, who are strictly adhering to international regulations in this regard. The Southern Negev is uninhabited desert over which no effective authority has ever existed." ... " the Government of the State of Israel operates in parts of Palestine outside the territory of the State of Israel"

      “international regulations” then and now;

      Laws and Customs of War on Land (Hague IV); October 18, 1907 Art. 42 SECTION III
      "Territory is considered occupied when it is actually placed under the authority of the hostile army. The occupation extends only to the territory where such authority has been established and can be exercised."

      3 Jun 1948 in the Knesset

      Report to the Provisional Government of Israel by Prime Minister and Minister of Defence Ben-Gurion 3 Jun 1948
      "The entire expanse of the State of Israel allocated to us under the terms of the UN resolution is in our hands, and we have conquered several important districts outside those boundaries".
      and;
      "To the greatest possible extent, we will remain constantly on the offensive, which will not be confined to the borders of the Jewish State".

      12 Aug 1948

      the Provisional Israeli Government proclaimed Jerusalem Declared Israel-Occupied City- by Israeli Government Proclamation 12 Aug 1948

      Occupation can actually be dated from 00:01 May 15th 1948, when Jewish forces under plan Dalet were already in occupation of non-Israeli territories even as Israel's borders were being proclaimed effective and recognized. http://www.trumanlibrary.org/whistlestop/study_collections/israel/large/documents/newPDF/49.pdf

    • Speaking of sad bloggers. It's incredible how stupid supporters of the illegal colonization of non-Israeli territories can be

      @ catalan February 28, 2017, 2:17 pm

      "Annie tried that last year with Soda stream, which she said was a horrible investment"

      Indeed, Israeli companies illegally entrenched in Occupied Territories where they're stealing non-Israeli resources are not only vile Israeli thieves, but they could easily lose everything in a just territorial settlement for Palestine where compensation is (over) due. A simple risk assessment would tell any sane person it was a horrible investment

      " and it is now up 5 times, worth over a billion from 200M

      Well, who'd have thought. Since leaving the Occupied Territories Soda Stream's value has risen. AMAZING!!!

      WTF do you think people here have saying in essence? Get out of all non-Israeli territories as required by law, it'll be an all round beneficial move

  • Palestinian children get longer sentences for throwing stones than Israeli soldier got for killing a Palestinian
    • Added to which, under Israeli Military law a Palestinian child reaches majority at 16 yrs whereas for a Jewish child it's 18. Palestinian teens can be tried as adults 2 years before Jews

      To say or infer that Jews in Israel are less responsible and somewhat backward seems a rather Antisemitic notion

      Simple. F*ck off out of all non Israeli territories. Go live in Israel. It's never been tried. Israel has been acting illegally in non-Israeli territories since 00:01 May 15th 1948

      "I think that partition, two states ,is the best and only realistic solution."

      " Once partition is agreed on in principle, all that can be discussed"

      Strange, it was agreed in principal by the Zionist Federation's Jewish Agency http://wp.me/pDB7k-Yx
      It was agreed by Israel and every state that recognized Israel as Israel asked to be recognized http://wp.me/pDB7k-Xk

      The Palestinians have no legal obligation what so ever to forgo ANY of their rights or territories in negotiations/discussions.

      Israel is obliged to withdraw from all non-Israeli territories whether there are discussions/negotiations or not.

      All that is legally required to be negotiated or discussed is how and when Israel will withdraw, taking ALL its citizens with it. Read the Egypt Israel Peace Treaty, that's the implementation of UNSC res 242 http://wp.me/pDB7k-ZZ

      BTW It's irrelevant that the Arab States didn't agree with partition. They were never legally obliged to agree to it

      Israel meanwhile has never had a legally elected Government under the promised Israeli constitution http://pages.citebite.com/p2b0i7o9o6xlh

      "Israel" is "the Occupying Power" over non-Israeli territories (UNSC res 476 https://unispal.un.org/DPA/DPR/unispal.nsf/0/6de6da8a650b4c3b852560df00663826 ). As such it is bound by the UN Charter Chapt XI and has a " sacred trust" to protect the occupied, their property and their territory and assist them to statehood.

      Instead, the Jewish State illegally settles non-Israeli territories it covets (against one of Judaisms basic common sense tenets) purposefully putting Israeli civilians on the front lines in contravention of GC IV. A convention adopted to protect civilians of the Occupying Power as well as citizens of the occupied

      "... and has more historic and legal claims to the disputed lands of Judea and Samaria than the so-called “Palestinians”, since there isn’t now nor has ever been a country called Palestine."

      Nonsense. Palestine was a state with provisional recognition in 1922, by 1925 it had adopted Palestinian Nationality Law per the League of Nations Mandate for PALESTINE, Article 7

      Article 7 The Administration of Palestine shall be responsible for enacting a nationality law. There shall be included in this law provisions framed so as to facilitate the acquisition of Palestinian citizenship by Jews who take up their permanent residence in Palestine. http://avalon.law.yale.edu/20th_century/palmanda.asp#art7

      Furthermore, Israel proclaimed its borders effective at 00:01 May 15th 1948 and was recognized as such. http://www.trumanlibrary.org/whistlestop/study_collections/israel/large/documents/newPDF/49.pdf However, at the time Jewish forces under Paln Dalet were already in territories the Israeli Government itself claimed on May 22nd 1948 were "outside the State of Israel" ... "in Palestine"

      " why was Israel attacked five times by its Arab neighbors BEFORE there were any settlements?"

      It was never attacked. A) Israeli forces were in non-Israeli territories even as Israel's borders were being proclaimed and being recognized. The other Regional Powers had a right to attempt to expel Israeli forces from non-=Israeli territories for the simple reason that it was Israel acting outside of its proclaimed and recognized territories. Israel got there by attacking non-Israeli territories. No Israeli territories have ever been invaded

      Of course we'll never know because the Zionist Federation and Jewish Agency never intended to and haven't kept their word. They were and still are notorious liars , as the Arab states were well aware by 1947

      Rightly so. Neither condition has any legal basis. In fact, none of Israel's demands have any legal basis. The Palestinians meanwhile have every right to retain ALL their rights even in negotiations.

    • Contrary to the Zionist/Israeli narrative, it is the Zionists who never fail to miss an opportunity.

      From the end of at least the Roman era to 1922 Jewish folk could move to Palestine, obtain valid citizenship, buy land and settle anywhere in the Jewish People's alleged historical homeland. Few did. The majority in the diaspora missed the opportunity, (if they ever actually wanted to take it)

      Herzl could have in his life time moved to Palestine, obtained citizenship, bought land and settled anywhere in Palestine. He didn't bother. The Zionist Federation didn't even bother to move there until 1936. Opportunity after opportunity missed.

      Instead of taking the Balfour declaration at its word (it doesn't mention a state and the two British white papers made that very clear), the Zionists wanted more. Another missed opportunity to return to anywhere in the Jewish People's alleged historical homeland.

      Instead of accepting the 1922 League of Nations Mandate for Palestine per Chapter 7, the Zionists insisted on missing that opportunity too.

      In 1948 instead of keeping within Israel's proclaimed and recognized borders the Zionist formed provisional Government of Israel attacked and illegally acquired by war territories that were not proclaimed or recognized as Israeli. Another missed opportunity.

      Today the Arab peace initiative has been on the table for over a decade. Israel seems hell bent on missing that opportunity too.

      Now Israel is in a position where it simply can not afford to adhere to the law. It has lied itself into a corner from which the only legal escape is to plea bargain its way out

      Meanwhile the Palestinians have no legal obligation to forgo ANY of their legal rights. The only negotiations they are perhaps obliged to are how and when Israel will withdraw, how and when refugees might return and what reparations the Jewish State should make.

      However while Israel has the US veto in its grubby blood dripping fist, nothing will change. The pyramid scheme will go on. Jews will continue to be duped, Palestinians continue to be dispossessed

      " It hasn’t been “codified in the UN Charter”. "

      The inadmissibility of acquiring territory by war/force, is codification of Article 11 of the Montevideo Convention

      "What territory was legally acquired"

      The territory declared and recognized as Israeli in accordance with the Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States 1932, which by 1948 had been codified in the UN Charter

      " (besides 3% private property and another 3% by the JNF)??? "

      In both instances, you're talking about the ownership of real estate. The ownership of real estate by people, organizations or foreign Governments does not give them rights to territories. The territory of states is owned by all its legitimate inhabitants, whether they own/rent/lease real estate or are homeless living under a bridge. JNF is not a citizen BTW

      " And according to what international law/principle?"

      Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States 1932

      "The Zionist Terror Agency had allready occupied most of the 78% before 15th May"

      Indeed. However, prior to 00:01 May 15th 1948 it was a civil war. On declaring its borders effective, the civil war became a war by the State of Israel on what remained of Palestine

      The Israeli Government didn't proclaim all of the territories it occupied as Israeli, which gave the other Regional Powers the right to attempt to expel Israeli/Jewish forces from the non-Israeli territories.

      If you're going to talk about Israel, it is a state. States have defined territories. The Israeli Government proclaimed Israel's territories, the majority of the International Comity of Nations recognized Israel within those borders. Only one state, Palestine, has recognized any further territories as Israeli. However, Israel has not agreed to that recognition, so its borders remain those of 00:01 May 15th 1948

      “There is compelling evidence that male circumcision reduces the risk of heterosexually acquired HIV infection in men by approximately 60%. Three randomized controlled trials have shown that male circumcision provided by well trained health professionals in properly equipped settings is safe."

      Babies? NO! Ritual? NO! Identification? NO!

      Furthermore they're not even talking about babies. They're talking about men who're sexually active.

      From the article you cited:

      Male circumcision provides only partial protection, and therefore should be only one element of a comprehensive HIV prevention package which includes: the provision of HIV testing and counseling services; treatment for sexually transmitted infections; the promotion of safer sex practices; the provision of male and female condoms and promotion of their correct and consistent use.”

      So circumcision itself might have no effect other than being a focus point for distributing educational and preventative material

      Baby crying joyfully, "WAAA WHHHHHAAAAAAAA!!!!"

      Mohel, spitting, "There done!"

      Baby joyfully crying, "BWAAAAAAA WHHHAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

      Father, "Why is he crying?"

      Jon66, "He's overjoyed!"

      Entire world, "Oh."

      Jon66, "Oh, here's his comprehensive HIV prevention package which includes: the provision of HIV testing "

      Mother, "He's only a baby!"

      Jon66, "... and counseling services; treatment for sexually transmitted infections; "

      Mother, "He's only a baby!"

      Jon66, "... the provision of male and female condoms and ... "

      Mother, "HE'S ONLY A BABY!!!!!"

      Jon66, ".. and promotion of their correct and consistent use. "

      Mohel, "Got anything on herpes?"

      Joyfully crying baby joyfully crying some more, "WAAAAAAAA AAA A A WHHHHHAAA AAA AAA A A A!!!!"

      Jon66 "Happy little fellow!"

      "What you call “barbaric mutilation” is regarded by most Jews as an important ritual, a traditional sign of Jewish identity and a joyous occasion"

      A) Mutilating a helpless baby as a ritual is sadistic and barbaric. If you were to cut off any other part of their anatomy as a ritual you'd be arrested, but it's OK to ritually mutilate their reproductive organ. There's something sad and quite twisted in that kind of 'logic'

      B) The joyfulness of a baby screaming in pain while his mutilator sucks away the blood flowing from their handiwork is such an interesting theory

      @ Jon s February 23, 2017, 3:03 am

      "... the ritual has always been a favorite target for Jew-haters"

      Ah yes, of course. Compassion for babies is Jew hatred. Muslims circumcise. Even some Christians and non-religious persons circumcise for cosmetic and other dubious reasons (a billion or so Chinese seem to have survived without)

      BTW Circumcised men can and still do contract STDs/AIDS

      "Except that Jews had always lived in Eretz Yisroel."

      Strange, the Jewish scriptures tell us Jewish forefathers conquered the region.

      "In fact, they had a Kingdom there for a while"

      So what? The modern state of Israel proclaimed its borders effective May 15th 1948 at precisely 00:01 in order to be recognized. No other territory belongs to Israel. Certainly not territory acquired by war "outside the State of Israel" ... "in Palestine"

      " Jews had repeatedly tried to return to Eretz Yisroel over the course of a millenium"

      A few did. The majority didn't. In Herzl's lifetime he could have, but didn't. The Zionist Federation wasn't formed by people from the region. At the time it was formed they could have all moved to Palestine, bought land, attained citizenship, settled. They didn't. Instead they loaned money at interest to poor Jews to go do the hard yards at the front lines, same as today. It's called a pyramid scheme, it needs more and more territory to sell to more and more gullible Jews in order to survive. It's a scam and the main target is still poor Jews

      " Jews are the indigenous tribe of Eretz Yisroel "

      Who did King David conquer?

      "and they’re not making any plans to leave any time soon"

      So let 'em live in Israel, that's what it's for. Get out of all non-Israeli territories currently occupied by the Jewish State

      "The white Europeans who colonized the Americas and South Africa, had a place to return to. Their colonies in Africa and the Americas mirrored their homes in Europe."

      Difference is ... Israel is STILL colonizing and it's colonizing non-Israeli territories.

      "The Zionists didn’t leave their ‘homeland’ "

      Strange, only one of the signatories to the Israeli declaration of statehood was from the region

      Article III. The following acts shall be punished: a) Genocide; b) Conspiracy to commit genocide; c) Direct and public incitement to commit genocide; d) Attempt to commit genocide; e) Complicity in genocide.

      Article IV. Persons committing genocide or any of the other acts enumerated in Article III shall be punished, whether they are constitutionally responsible rulers, public officials or private individuals.

      Care to show this archaeological evidence ... thx.

      There is absolutely no evidence what so ever that Jewish folk were ever a majority in the region

      "There is no solid body of evidence for a Palestinian Arab identity until the Jews arrived to stake their claim"

      The Jewish scriptures tell us our Jewish forefathers conquered someone who was there before them.

      BTW your bullsh*t is irrelevant as of the moment Israel proclaimed it's borders effective, precisely 00:01 May 15th 1948 (ME time) http://www.trumanlibrary.org/whistlestop/study_collections/israel/large/documents/newPDF/49.pdf As of that moment whatever territpry wasn't proclaimed and recognized as Israeli simply was not and is still not Israeli by any legal agreement

      There's nothing just or moral about Israel and Israelis illegally in non-Israeli territories illegally acquired by war by the Jewish state. Go kvetch to the Israeli Govt/Zionist Federation for f*cking up

      That IS the era when International Law was codified prohibiting the acquisition of territory by coercive measures incl war. The Vietnam War came much later and I don't believe Beatle-mania resulted in any International Laws being adopted

      Landowners only own real estate it's their individual choice to pursue compensation or not. They'd be named only when and if they make a claim, when Israel eventually recognizes its legal obligations or is dragged kicking and kvetching to the Hague

      Territory and its resources on the other hand, belong to all the legitimate inhabitants of the territory whether they own real estate or rent/lease real estate or live homeless under a bridge. Compensation for territory and its resources and compensation for hardship etc Israel has never been able to afford to pay

      How odd. A) Israel signed and Armistice AGREEMENT, leaving Jordan in control of what was officially renamed the West Bank.

      B) According to your stupid assertion Israel's Occupation of non-Israeli territories under the same Armistice AGREEMENT must also have been illegal

      C) Your giving an example of a state Israel IS NOT at war with is sooooo funny (all ZioLogic is )

      D) The law is still in force because Israel is still at war with Lebanon, Syria and Palestine

      "Israel and Jordan have since signed a peace treaty, and Israel and the PA have signed the Oslo Agreement. The PA and Israel regularly cooperate in matters of security, water, electricity, taxes, etc."

      Amazing. And withdrawal from Egypt's territories resulted in Peace with Egypt and Israel (per UNSC 242)

      Now about Palestinian , Syrian, Lebanese territories Israel currently occupies.

      "And the sentence for selling land to an Israeli (Jew and Arab?), is death. "

      "And the sentence for selling land to an Israeli ... is death"

      See even you write "Israeli" . And yes, I did give a link to penalties for treason by countries.
