number one there has allways been a jewish presence in the area not a arab one. during the crusades cristians killed over 1 million jews that lived in and around jerusalem. once rome fell there has allways been jews returning. after 600 A.D. arabs have been killing jews to take the land. since WWII when the arabs sided with hitler lost britian gained the lands near isreal. in 1948 isreal was reconized but isreal has allways been. isreal was nearly destroyed in 1967 but repeled the invaders arabs lost jordan gave isreal the westbank for peace and egypt gave the gaza strip to isreal for peace. thats the facts isreal in fact since 1967 has owned both west and gaza strip. so whos occupiing who arabs no right of cliam at all. but no one wants to hear that truth just there dogma. anyone knowing history would know this.
