Why does Israel have to live by a different world standard? Nearly a quarter of US territory once belonged to Mexico before it was conquered and annexed in war. And when considering the limits of Israeli borders, why do we consider Palestine at all. There was never a "nation" of Palestine. The disputed land in the West Bank belonged to Jordan. The land in Gaza belonged to Egypt. Those calling themselves Palestinians never clamored for their own land and nation when Arab entities controlled it. And as far as where a Jew can live, does anyone believe that Jews could freely settle in any Arab country (or most Christians for that matter). There are Arab citizens in Israel. Are there any significant Jewish citizens in Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, the Emirates, Iran. The Palestinians once lived in land that belonged to Jordan and Egypt. Those countries should welcome them home. They do not. They still call themselves "refugees." What other group of people have been "refugees" for sixty years. They're refugees because their brethren won't even welcome them and because they can't get together to govern themselves.
