Don't hurry. Read this before you go.The book of Genesis told Abraham he will give the land of Canaan to all his descendants. But that would also include Ishmael his first son. But God also said, in Judges 2:21-23, "In the future I will not evict any of the nations that Joshua left in the land when he died." So the Jewish people do not have the right to claim all the land of Palestine. Israel accepted UN resolution 181 and declared itself a state, without Judea and Samaria being within its borders. Therefore, Israeli settlements in the West Bank are a violation of UN resolutions 242, 452 and 465. As such they are in violation of articles 49, 53 and 147 of the 4th Geneva Convention. These are violations of international law and constitute a war crime. Jewish religious beliefs do not supersede international law. If international law had to conform to the beliefs of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Shintoism etc., there would be no international law.
