    It was only a few years ago that the pals were complaining that they were being confined to 'bantu Stands' and compaing themselves to South Africa. Because when the last King of Jordan died he released the confiscated land recoredd showing the Arabs own very little and in Israel or the WB; less than 7%. While all of Iowa may be in private hands and farmed, most of Israel is empty, like California and the Western states and for good reason, it can't be farmed easily. The lands for resettlement are within UNR 242, are expressly allocated for Jewish ownership, and in the absence of a viable arab government, tiny Israel is acting in self-defense literally taking the high ground and will resolve the land ownership issues later at the peace table - survival comes first. Let the Arabs step forward and settle the matter, but they will not because compromise and peace are not part of their cultural vocabulary.
