    The whole situation is not black and white. From my perspective, when Israel formed, they were happy to finally have a "home." The Arabs decided that this was unacceptable and attacked from all fronts immediately. Fledgling Israel, defended itself with it's limited resources and repelled the attacks, and conquering some land as it pushed the enemies back. These are the spoils and gains of war. They shouldn't have attacked, and then to have the balls to cry demanding their land back. Tough crap. That said, expansionism into the Palestinian territories and creating outposts and settlements in these areas, do nothing to help the situation. If the Palestinians don't see hope for themselves, their families and their homes, there cannot be any stability or peace. Keeping them down has only fed the extremist element through desperation. The game playing needs to end or there will never be peace and only more bloodshed on both sides. Quite frankly, I find Israel's actions embarrassing.
