re: #174 Buck

Really? Who’s is it? Who is the rightful owner of the land taken from the Ottoman Empire after WW1? What country holds the legal deed to the land?

Israel does. The land was returned to the Jews in 1920. Britain was given a Mandate to help return the land to the Jews. No one can give that land to someone else.

At the same time that this land was returned to the Jews by the Allies of WW1, the league of nations and later the UN… Lebanon was given their land, Syria was given their land. No one disputes those land transfers. Why do you only dispute the transfer of land (from the Ottoman Empire) to the Jews?

It actually does belong to Israel.

The West Bank is considered occupied territory both by the Israeli courts and under international law.
