"[Israeli occupation of] these territories has a very viable foundation in Jewish heritage." (Scott) How can you, Scott and your likeminded kind, so consistently stand for such nonsense? There is nothing in our Jewish heritage that allows or encourages us Israeli Jews to settle amidst a foreign and stateless population, on lands on which no Israeli government has ever declared full sovereignty. The promise made to Abraham is not a special licence for a UN state member to implement policies that would be condemned if carried out by any other country's government. What sense would that make, I ask you, to allow all UN states members to appeal each to its own holy scriptures? Or should our leaders call on the entire world to convert to the 'true religion'? They have sometimes been stupid, but ayatullahs they are not. Thanks God for that.
