If Israel wishes the world to honor it with the rule of law, then Israel must abide by the rule of law. No matter what the Jews think that "god" said; no matter how they hate Arabs; no matter how much land, water and resources they steal: It is still a fact that all that Israel occupies or settles not GIVEN to it by the UN was stolen, pure and simple. Spin it any way the right wing wants to spin it; Israel is and will ever be in violation of international law. That is why it is heading for a situation where Israel will have not ONE friend in the world. So be it.
