Brod: "Judea and Samaria are Israel`s liberated historic homeland." THEN CLAIM IT AS PART OF ISRAEL. It may have escaped your notice, Brod, but Israel has been in complete control of the West Bank for over 42 years, and in all that time it has conspicuously failed to claim the territory for itself. So why don't you sit down, furrow your brow, and try to work out ***why*** Israel refuses to claim something that ***you*** insist is there for the taking. Is it because: 1) 42 years of successive Israeli govts didn't known their arse from their elbow? or is it because: 2) You don't know what you are talking about? Here's a little hint: Israel **did** try that with East Jerusalem, and 42 years later it is still no closer to having that recognized by..... anyone..... except you. Funny that, heh?
