  •  I'm talking about what's (0+ / 0-)

    going on in the occupied territories right now.

    Theft.

    •  Again, there is no stealing of land (0+ / 0-)

      BUT to show how your moral compass is turned around:

      Today marks the Fourth year since Gilad Shalit was kidnapped and imprisoned with no contact to his family or friends or visits from the Red Cross.

      This alone is another crime against humanity by Hamas.

      All the while 1000s of Palestinians in Israeli Captivity receive medication, aid and of course contact from family and Red Crescent.

      Your response might again be "it's Israels fault".

      Please think about what that means.

        goodness gracious!

        I'm so relieved to hear that. 30 years in the Mideast and I've been so misled.

        Thank you, thank you ever so much for letting me know!

        No confiscations? No contrived court cases? No refusal to allow Palestinians to build when they can show title, no expulsions when they can't? No declarations that Palestinian land held in common is now property of the Israeli state? No right of return for Palestinians to land they owned in pre-1948 Israel, but right of return for Jews owning land in the pro-1948 West Bank?

        You've save me a lot of unnecessary soul searching.
