    SDHD: "That Jews weren`t cleansed from the West Bank and East Jerusalem by the Jordanians and that the Jews illegally reclaimed their properties 19 years later?" Mull the words: "reclaiming their properties" After all, for that phrase to be true then a) the Jews who "returned" post-67 must be those who were dispossessed post-48, because b) only THOSE Jews can claim that they still own legal title to property in the West Bank. Yet THESE colonists (who number in the 100,000s) are clearly not the same Jews, since the Jewish population of the West Bank pre-48 war was less than 10,000. Because that's the flaw in your argument i.e. legal title to property is a right that is vested in an INDIVIDUAL, and is not a collective right that is vested amongst an ETHNICITY. A property can be owned by "a Jew". Sure, no argument from me. But any ol' Jew can't claim legal title to a property merely because "it used to be owned by a Jew, and I'm a Jew, so it's mine now".
