    I have no problem with people calling land outside of Israel "native to Jews" (to me it is more like formerly native to Jews). I have a problem with people saying that this entitles them to treat non-Jews differently, or even expel them. These people really started the problems between Jews and Arabs in Palestine. These people are called zionists. That is a fact. You might not like that, but that is history for you. The only state calling the occupied territories "disputed", is Israel. I have heard some obscure island states are calling it that too, but I am not sure of that. The rest of the world interpretes the Geneva conventions as such that all lands outside the Green Line are no part of Israel, all Israeli settlements (or colonies) outside the Green Line are illegal until peace is negotiated, and Israel may only keep that what the Palestinian people are willing to let them keep. That is a fact, too. Problem is, the Palestinians may have a hard time making it look a voluntary decision to let Israel keep some of the lands, while under the occupation, or in other words, with a knife against their throat. Here's my opinion: It is too bad that not even my own government puts its money where its mouth it, and tells the Israeli ambassador to stay away until we can welcome him again, along with his Palestinian collegue, or greet the ambassador of a truly democratic state, where there is no discrimination between Jews and non-Jews, and that covers all of Israel, WestBank and Gaza.

Shimon Attal.
For French teen studying in Israel, it's all about being a Jew among Jews

Arrivals / Departures: Anti-Semitism in France is certainly not the reason why this teen chose to come to Israel; an Israeli whose relatives perished in the Holocaust finds living in Berlin 'perfectly fine.'
