Be careful Mr. Hari - what you are saying about "illegally occupied Jewish..." can, and if I were a Plalesinian I would do it, be turned against Israel. How much of the area of The State of Israel in its 1967 borders (armisice Lines) is so called "illegally occupied Territories" occupied during the 1948 war, in the same way that the area of Silwan etc. in Jerusalem were occupied by the Jordanians during that war. Are Jews entitled to the propery they lost during the 1948 war, but Arabs are not? What is the difference and why? I sincerely hope that you and others don't start using such arguments, which could be a very dangerous preceedent for Israel!
