    If a foreign country had told the European countries to stop the illegal settlements during the 1500s, 1600s and 1700s of Native American Indian land, they would've been laughed at. Not once has America issued an apology to the Native Americans for wiping out 90% of their land through genocide and war. This country was founded through illegal settlements called COLONIES. And now America wants to tell Israel to stop doing the very same thing that the Europeans did a few hundred years ago?

    I guess it's okay for the Christians to do it, but not the Jews, eh?

    Fact: Israel won the Golan Heights from Syria, Gaza from Egypt and the West Bank from Jordan during the 1967 war. While we're in negotiations with Syria to give back part of the Golan Heights, neither Egypt nor Syria are interested in the respected lands they used to control. Therefore, the land belongs to Israel and is Israel's to do whatever the fuck it wants to do with it.

    Look at the borders of Poland before the Soviet Union took it:

    Look at Poland today

    Much bigger! Where are the calls to return land to Germany that Poland stole??

    So you OPENLY are calling for the same treatment of Arabs as the Native Indians in the US during our colonization of the Country? And you wonder why we ALL think you are loony tunes?

    What? What the fuck are you talking about? I was citing an example of how America was founded and what it did to its native culture. I haven't said a word about how to treat the Arabs.

    If Israel must stop its settlements and return them to the Arabs, then America must stop its settlements and return them to the Native American Indians.

    They're not illegal if Israel owns the land - which it does! Again, Israel won the land during the 1967 war. Since when is owning land that you win from a war illegal??

    Does Israel own the land? Or do they govern it?

    Does the United States own your land?

    Much of the land in question is owned by individual Palestinians.

    So while Israel may lay claim to govern that land, they do not own it. And any action to remove a Palestinian from land that they own in order to settle that land with Israelis, is illegal.

    Your first inacuracy is calling the Arabs who live there Palestinians. There is no such thing as a Palestinian. They are Arabs. There is absolutely no difference between them, the Jordanians, the Syrians and the Saudi Arabians. Lebanese people are different than Arabs as are Egyptians. Most of the people who live in Gaza are Egyptian and Arab combinations. But again, Palestine was just another name for Israel. So since they are on land that is owned by Israel, they are Egyptian-Arab-Israelis - NOT Palestinians. That's #1.

    #2 - illegal according to whom? First, many of the Israeli settlers are living on land that is not populated by the Arabs but within land that is disputed. Second, the Jews that lived there during the Jewish Palestine mandate of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s lived there legally - it was THEIR land.

    So all the Jews are doing is taking back the land that was illegally stolen from them by illegal immigrants into the area during the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.
