Illegal, immoral occupation of Palestinian land must end.

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Nothing wrong with a country building home for its citizens in their country.

The land belongs to Israel; it never belonged to Palestinian Arabs.

Israel fought off three countries that were trying to destroy it.

It gets to keep that land and do with it what it wants, which is what it is doing.

Painkiller has it exactly right. The Palestinians are more than welcome to become good citizens or they can clear out. But there is no Palestinian state, unless you perhaps count the country of Jordan. Amazing that after so long, the so-called 'brothers' of the Palestinians have refused to take them in, offer them support, or do anything other than abuse them. Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Gulf States, Iraq, Syria, I am talking about you. This whole mess is YOUR fault when you invaded Israel back in 1948. Time to admit responsibility and make amends.

By a continuous campaign of terrorist attacks since 1948 the Palestinians have ensured there can be no peace. Had they lived in peace with Israel by now the problem would have gone away and they would all be a lot better off but instead by the violence encouraged by their self serving so called leaders they have so poisoned the well that a peaceful settlement is all but impossible to envisage.

Having thrice sought to slaughter the people and wipe their state from the map, a desire to ensure their security is understandable.

I assume you're quite supportive of the continuous campaign of terrorist attacks by groups such as the Irgun against the British and Arabs in Palestine prior to 1948.

What about when it's a country that evangelising right-wing Americans don't approve of?
