Jake continued: Israel is not the "occupying power" they are the liberators and the rule of law in an otherwise lawless land. We have no desire to rule over Arabs and if the Arabs desired peace with the Jews (Children of Israel) they could have it in a day. I sound like I want war but this only a practical, unfortunate response to what Israel's enemies want and this is what they will get. Before '48 partition there were many Jewish communities in the "West Bank" that were bought legally and destroyed by the Arab legion and made Judenrein. After 67' liberation, the owners of those land returned and continued where they left off before Arab occupation forces illegally seized Jewish land. Did you know this? Many do not. The laws that applied to Arabs only differed because of the security threat Arabs posed since 1920's to the Jewish civilians. Last thing: We are Not "Jews" this is refers to tribe of Judah. We are the Tribe of Israel. The land of Israel and it's children are inseparable.
