    Bradly Burston dishes up his oh-so predictable rantings. I have some news for Mr. Burston. There CANNOT BE an 'illegal occupation' of one's own property. Burston doesn't even deny that the Shimon HaZaddik neighborhood (a tiny area, about 2 blocks wide) was a Jewish neighborhood until the Palestinian-Jordanians ethnically cleansed it and renamed it "Sheikh Jarrah". Removing Jews from "East Jerusalem" will not bring Peace Now nor Peace Ever just as it failed to bring peace after the Old City was made Judenrein in 1948. Plainly, on today's Memorial Day for Israelis killed by Arab hostility, Burston bemoans the Six Day War of "Occupation" in which the Jewish neighborhood of Shimon HaZaddik came back under Jewish control. An anti-social anarchist by any definition! If Burston really cared about Occupation, he would work to oust the invading Muslim Waqf from the Jewish Temple Mount. If he cared about Occupied Palestine, he would work to remove the invading Hashemites from the E.Bank.
