    Who is the "we" and the "our" you are talking about? Surely, there's a long battle for the appropriation of this land and there's no real arguments about issues of "morality" or "justice". These concepts are at the eye of the beholder. The leadership of the state of Israel are taking measures and implementing policies for the sole benifit of the citizens of the state of Israel. They're not creating policies to improve the fate of the citizens of the United States, Jordan, Latvia or the Palestinian Authority. The Jews and the Palestinians have been fighting over the same land for more then a hundred years. Luckily, Israel gained the upper hand. Now, it is obvious that in all your rhetocirc, agendas, and idiology, you share the Palestinian narrative. You identify with the Palestinian cause, you believe the Palestinians are "right" and Israel is "wrong" and "immoral", so at least be decent and true to yourself not to identify yourself as an Israeli.
