LMAO. As you know perfectly well, almost all the West Bank settlers come from places like the USA and France and Russia. They have no right to steal land from Palestinian families that have lived there for millennia. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    Jews by their own reckoning have never been native to the West Bank. By their own admission they stole it from the Canaanites and then were almost all kicked out by the Romans and the Arabs who came after them. That was over 1500 years ago. A few Jews hung on in the West Bank but the vast majority of Israelis come from families that went noweher near Israel for over a thousand years. Basing land claims on where your ancestors lived over a thousand years ago is pathetic and bogus. I could claim most of Europe and quite a lot of Africa, and that's even before we start on the British Empire. In fact, I may have a better claim to the west Bank than you do!

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
