So these "enlightened progressives" know better than the courts what is just and what is not? Funny, they usually argue about how holy the courts' word is. So here the court rules that the properties absolutely belong to Jewish people and the activists fight against the legal order. They really don't have to fight since usually the police drag their feet and don't act on legitimate Jewish claims in Jerusalem. They say, "Jews can claim land but Arabs can't" (from a certain time period). There was a war. 1% of our Jewish population paid the highest price for this war of aggression. I say, yes, definitely pay the Arabs compensation for their houses in Baka, etc. BUT ONLY WHEN the Jews from Arab countries get compensation for the billions of dollars of property THEY lost. Does it make sense that one side only should get compensated again and again? And, by the way: Arabs that fled their homes and now live somewhere else in Israel, will they give up these areas if they get their old property back? Absolutely not! I just don't understand how we all don't give a damn about the gigantic theft of property of Jews from Arab countries (and the wrongs done to them). Perhaps, some of these activists should help the new Hashomer organization that is trying to prevent the theft of Jewish land in the Galilee. Some people believe it is okay to have 23 Arab/Moslem states but that having one tiny Jewish country is racism. If that is what you think, just say so. But our sons and daughters are busting their hides in the army for ALL of us and we don't give them much gratitude. Perhaps they ought to protest that Airforce soldiers are not supposed to go on the Nebatim road because of attacks by Israeli Arabs in the Negev or that Arab citizens of Israel rob soldiers who are doing exercises up North at night and the state does nothing. These people you are protesting for (in Jerusalem) paid low rent for years. They were hurt by the war that their people waged against the new Jewish State. THIS is where your Jewish conscience hurts you the most? Sorry, there are much bigger things going on in Israel today that are bothering my Jewish conscience.
