    ?Most armies of the world utilize civilian villages on occassion to simulate combat conditions in the actual atmosphere of a village situation.? No, most armies in the world build model towns for these exercises and get volunteers to act as the residents. Perhaps this seems droll to you, but most armies, and nations, adhere to the fourth Geneva convention. You might review them here http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Fourth_Geneva_Convention#Part_I:_General_Provisions or here http://www.genevaconventions.org/. Not that Israel really cares about the conventions. Suffice it to say the Palestinians are not ?civilians? with whom Israel may abuse at its pleasure. Your other ravings are equally unavailing. eminent domain in the U.S. is not unfettered (see U.S. Const. amend. V and XIV) and wouldn't apply in any event as the Geneva conventions regulate occupations. Also, not so sure that any system based upon the logic of "they [Texas1836] did it so israel can too" is sound.
