    "A settler is a person who has migrated to an area and established permanent residence there, often to colonize the area. Settlers are generally people who take up residence on land.'

    "In almost every real historical case, settlers live on land which previously belonged to long-established peoples, known as indigenous people (often called "natives", "Aborigines" or, in the Americas, "Indians"). This land is usually settled against the wishes of the indigenes, and then controlled, defended and expanded by force, or it is bought or leased from indigenous people on terms highly favourable to the settlers, sometimes under a treaty (e.g. the Treaty of Waitangi in New Zealand). In some cases (such as Australia), the legal ownership of some lands is contested much later by indigenous people, who seek or claim traditional usage, land rights, native title and related forms of ownership or partial control."

    yeah? so? its an english word -----words in other languages
    which are translated as "settler" have other conotations.

    Even concepts of LAND OWNERSHIP vary over time and place.

    We already know about the Palestinian squatters settling on Israel's land. By the way Seal, how are you holding up on your disposable diapers?

    MJB, your ignorance, lack of vocabulary skills, and your inability to think logically are showing again;

    Since the people who now call themselves Palestinians have a long history of renting or paying taxes to the lawful international owners or governing ( sp ) authorities ( Great Britian, Ottaman Empire and others preceding them ) than using the term squatters to describe them is simply wrong. Also under international law almost all of the land that Israel occupies especially in the west bank ( the settlers ) was illegally obtained by modern day standards and should be relinquished.

    For the record----there are virtually no records of
    the people who now call themselves "palestinians"
    or their ancestors paying taxes to the OTTOMANS
    or the British. There are records of attempts by
    the Ottomans to find a way to collect such
    taxes from people who were using the lands --
    tax free in that they TRIED to establish census
    and governance but failed and so opted to sell
    land to jews as a mean of attaining some
    financial benefit from the land ----to the horror
    of KORANIC SCHOLARS who saw no reason
    to breach HOLY LAW --Justinian law and
    shariah law ----and eventually Nuremburg law
    and sherri law

    Yes I did. But not for the reason that you probably think I did.

    Rather I cried for the promise of Israel that Netanyahu and his ilk have been deficating on !!!

    Caturday----you have a LINK to that evidence of Arab muslims in "palestine"
    paying taxes in the 1800s----to the Ottomans?. Caturday---you do realize
    that the nomadic Bedouins ---did not pay taxes DON'T you? You just
    divested them of any land claims at all

    Promises were made before the UN in 1949 and they were promises to allow a Palestinian State to be set up within the boundaries set forth in the UN Partition Plan and to allow the refugees to return to their homes and based on these promises Israel was admitted as a member of the UN.
