    Vast tracts of Israeli agricultural land in north Israel's Galilee area have been bought up by Arabs with financial backing from the Gulf, Israeli public radio reported on Saturday.

    It said dozens of hectares (acres) have been bought and that a local farmers' association had tried in vain to warn the Israeli authorities about the sale.

    The radio station quoted Agriculture Minister Shalom Simhon as saying the affair was not a matter for his department since "it concerns private land."

    Galilee and the Negev desert in the south are relatively lightly populated, and Israel has a minister, Sylvan Shalom, charged specifically with development.

    Much of the country's Israeli Arab population of around 1.4 million people lives in the Galilee.

    On August 3 the Israeli parliament passed a controversial land reform law that allows local officials to privatise publicly owned land, triggering the ire of the Arab minority.

    Arab MPs said the law, which is backed by hardline Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, would block efforts by Palestinians who fled the creation of Israel in 1948 to recover their property or seek compensation for what they have lost.

    The new law allows local municipal officials to sell off state land in urban centres and maintains a previous ban on the sale to non-Jews of land controlled by the Keren Kayemet LeIsrael Jewish agency.

    Then praytel, Elvis... How loudly would you insist the US were racist if we employed a state based ban of selling land to non-Aryans?

    The new law allows local municipal officials to sell off state land in urban centres and maintains a previous ban on the sale to non-Jews of land controlled by the Keren Kayemet LeIsrael Jewish agency.


    I'd love to hear how you rationalizing shit like this.

    You didn't miss anything because it isn't true. There is a ban against the sale of state lands to non Israeli citizens who aren't Jewish, but no ban against the sale of state lands to any Israeli citizens, not even in east Jerusalem. The original story is mistaken. The effect of the law is to transfer state owned lands, about 93% of all lands, from state ownership to private ownership. It is true that this will produce another impediment to "refugees" being able to recover land they claim they lost in 1948, but that was never going to happen anymore anyway.

    The Israeli High Court has ruled in several cases that there can be no discrimination among Israeli citizens because of race, religion, etc. in land sales either by the government, non governmental agencies or private citizens or entities. It does allow discrimination among non Israeli citizens in favor of foreign Jews. The effect of this privatization law will be to remove the legal basis for this discrimination against non citizens so that Palestinians who are legal residents in Israel, or even Palestinians living in the territories will be able to buy this land from the new private owners that they couldn't previously have bought from the state.

    I suggest you shoot an email to brietbart, yo.. Let them know how mistaken they are given their apparent joo hating antisemitism.

    also, the fucking physics that you had to negate in order to use gymnastics that a 12 year old chinese girl from last summers Olympics would appriciate with the following sentences is just PHENOMENAL.

    There is a ban against the sale of state lands to non Israeli citizens who aren't Jewish, but no ban against the sale of state lands to any Israeli citizens, not even in east Jerusalem.



    I guess you'd be ok with the same kind of policy applied to the US which banned jews from qualifying for the purchase of an equivalent type of land for the sake of preserving the Aryan dominance of America?

    WHAT?!?!?!


    You WOULDNT! No WAI!

    This is the first I have seen of this, but the article is inaccurate. The law doesn't allow the sale of land to non-Israeli citizens! Again Israeli Arabs can and DO purchase land in Israel.

    Funny how an person could find an argument against Israelis being very wary of Non-Israeli Arabs, who come from countries that DO NOT recognize nor support and seek Israel's destruction and the death of all her Jewish inhabitants purchasing land in Israel!

    Imagine if back in the 50-70s the Soviets purchased half of the land in WY, would Americans be fine just sitting back and saying COOL! Or would they would say" Hey US government official what the fuck are you doing?" Youbetchya!

    Nice try Shogun but no country would sit their and allow their enemies to purchase land in their country. I mean would you doubt Iran for not letting Israelis purchase a gigantic piece of their country. NO!

    But you will hypocritically bash the Israelis for doing! The reason being! Because you are a worthless ANTISEMITE!

    I remember a few years back when the Japanese started buying chunks of Rockerfeller Center in NY. Americans weren't too happy about it. And the Japanese were just an economic competitor, not a bloodthirsty enemy.
