Reassessing Israeli Settlements.

Reader comment on: Reassessing Israeli Settlements

Submitted by Deborah (United States), Jul 12, 2009 17:12

Israel should stand strong and maintain all the settlements they have and not divide this land that was given to them, by God. All Israeli governments have supported settlements-which were permitted by the Oslo accords- because these reflected an Israeli consensus and, ast least initially, enjoyed the backing of U.N. resolutions: U.N. security council resolution 242 (1967) demanded only that Israel withdraw from territories it conquered-deliberately omitting "the" to indicate Israel's right to settle in those territories.

It is also a problem that Palestinians say that Jews Stole their lands, in reference to territory captured by Israel in 1967. To suggest the entire West Bank is Palestinian accepts a face value claim that is not grounded in International Law. The deception goes on in the Palestinian arena!
