From 1948 until 1967 the West Bank was occupied by the Jordanian army. Jewswho had lived there for many hundreds of years were expelled or murdered and all their property was seized and the West Bank became a Jew-free. If the Palestinian Authority was sincere about desiring the state of “all the citizens” then it would offer the settlers duel citizenship and guaranteed property rights. Their words and actions show that they plan to make the West Bank and East Jerusalem Jew-free. Unfortunately, many readers are willing to suppress the history of terrorism against Israel that existed well before Israel defeated the Arab attacks of 1967 and “occupied” the West Bank and east Jerusalem. If Israel should get peace then the guarantees must come from the aggressors: the Arab nations and the Palestinians. These guarantees must be ironclad since the strategy and tactics of the Palestinians is to take any concessions and then to regard any piece is a temporary truce to be violated when they have an upper hand.
