If you say that we usurped their land then there is nothing to discuss. The land was divided. We are waiting for them to take up their division. That they're attacking us and we defend ourselves is not relevant but confuses the issue for those who don't understand the sad background. And I'm NOT talking about Israeli Arabs who are citizens of this country just as I am. Where did I support discrimination in their education? This is not an apartheid state. There are those who will run (funny that the haven't yet) to tell you that I know the true definition of Apartheid and it isn't Israel. (hint: It's Saudia, It's Lebanon) You are confusing issues.
