    History is clear. When Pal and Arab forces prepared to attack Israel to ty and regain property stolen from Pal refugees, Israel started the war with a preemptive strike. The most important fact, though, is that it occurred in 1967, not 1948. By 1967, there existed a body of international law and international organizations unprecedented in history. They had unequivocally and unabiguously dclared that no more shall land be taken in war. Even beforehand, the allies did not steal land from the Germans and Japanese, but this ethos had not yet been written and agreed to by most of the World. Israel, a signatory to the Geneva Conventions and UN Charter, considers itself above the law and sadly believes Jews have the right to kill and steal from Pals because of ethnicity and religion. This is precisely the mentality that makes war so likely and international law so important.
