    "Israel proper sees problems,admitts them and works on them" The Or commission reported many years ago Peter. The recommendations have not been acted upon [Olmert even recognized this.] If anything the situation has worsened under ever more right wing administrations. "How many Jews allowed to buy land in Palestine by the PA or Hamas"? Jews who wish to remain in a newly formed Palestinian State on the West Bank could do so as long as they live as Palestinian citizens. So says Erekat and Abbas. As for buying land, don?t be silly. Israel stopped purchasing Palestinian land decades ago. Since when they just confiscate it. "Things are so wonderful in the Islamic democracy of Iran that the huge community has shrunk to fraction of its former size" Read this NYT article on Iran titled: ?Why Jews Stay?. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/23/opinion/23cohen.html?_r=3&ref=opinion&page "How many Palestinian members of Parliament in "democratic"Lebanon etc"? They are not Lebanese. Would Israel allow sons or daughters of migrant workers to even LIVE in Israel never mind sit in the Knesset?Answer. No they have stated they intend to support such families. "How many Jews are allowed to live in Jordan? Iraq?" There are no laws specifically forbidding the purchase of land by Jews in Jordan. Certainly not for ?living? there. Iraq has a new constitution, have you checked it to find out if Jews are forbidden from buying land? It is well known that Jews have guested there in recent times, in the Kurdish region. I am sure you would have few problems relocating there if you so wished. Peter SM, you are as ill informed as ever but never mind, don't let the facts get in your way.
