    Lets be truthful and honest. As a an Israeli Jew, I am aware that Jews aren't restricted from building  in areas A and B.  It is "Israelis" that are restricted, whether we're Israeli Jews or Israeli Palestinians. Only those people with Palestinian citizenship, be they Jews, Arab Muslims, or Arab Christians, are allowed to build in the Occupied Territory of the West Bank (known as Area A, B, and C). Likewise, only Israeli citizens, be we Jews or Arabs can build in the State of Israel. If you want Israeli citizens to be allowed to build in any area (A, B or C of the West Bank), the will you allow Palestinian Authority citizens to build in any area within Israel proper? Of course you won't. Our government hardly gives building permits to Israeli citizens of Palestinian origin, much less would they allow Palestinians who are Palestinian citizens. Yet this you demand from the Palestinians! This is what is happening: We Israelis take our half of the pie for ourselves alone (ie. Israel proper). The Palestinians have their half of the pie, which has been sliced into slice A, slice B, and slice C, to fit into ovens to keep them warm (of which, slice C is being kept in an Israeli oven because the Palestinians didn't have enough ovens). Now, remembering that slice C is itself bigger than slice A and B together, we Israelis then start eating slice C in addition to our own half of the pie (Israel proper), and then when the Palestinians ask us to stop eating slice C, it is only in Israeli ovens to be kept warm until they can buy another oven, we then demand them to learn to share Slice A and B if they want to partake of slice C. It's moral bankruptcy on our behalf. As an Israeli I'm embarrassed. As a Jew I'm ashamed!
