    It's amusing you would mention the Geneva Convention and International law and make this ridiculous comment:" they do not state is that they occupier must give citizenship rights to the occupied". What does it say about demolishing homes, collective punishment, land confiscation, population transfer (ie Jewish settlers) and building Jewish only roads and settlements? I'm sure you can point to the book of Joshua for the legal precedent but that only makes you appear very irrational - to put it nicely. Although, I'm sure you think your logic is normal and reasonable from your viewpoint. You and those who think like you will only insure Israel enjoys a short lifespan. Call it apartheid or call it mayonnaise, what is indisputable a grave injustice and crime has been ongoing for over 40 years against the Palestinian people and there are no shortage of Jewish apologists for Israeli actions. I don't think that will change on this forum. Blind loyalty mandates one sees no evil. Good job!
