State says nobody has a right to sell the drafts on the open market for a profit, as this infringes on the state's right to keep an asset 'of deep symbolic significance' that belongs to the state and the public.01:40 27.11.15 | 0 comments
Ethnical cleansing is a despicable act, no matter by whom it is done. So of course I agree that it was wrong of Jordan to act as it did. It is probably impossible to return their lost assets but those who suffered from those acts (both Jews and gentiles) should be entitled to restitution. Just as there are many other people who should be entitled to restitution... By using the words "move back" you are seriously misrepresenting the issue at hand. First of all it indicates that the people in the settlements are the same people that were expelled. Secondly it indicates that they merely return to what was theirs. Thirdly you are forgetting that the settlers are trying to make the captured land into Israeli land. The Jews who were expelled from the territories in question did not live in Israel, they lived in what was meant to become Israel's neighbour state. Israel has no legal claim to that land whatsoever, it belongs to the future Palestinian state.
