I wish people would actually go into the history of the area from about the time Britian took over the area from the Ottoman Empire. The area was divided into Jewish and Arab people. Until Israel was given statehood as a country their division(Jews) was carved into about 20 new countries. There were no people called Palestines. Israel took over the West Bank from Jordan who never wanted it returned. Israel is building on their land "won"in 1967.
