so can we only bring up the past which suits you?<quoted text>
Bringing up the past does not change that what England, America along with other countries that you have mentioned have done was wrong. We are supposed to learn by our mistakes not continue making them. My only involvement is that I believe that what was done to them was a gross injustice which is being glossed over by people such as you. The Israelis agreed to the right of return for the refugees and then denied it them. They point to the phrase" living in peace". The fact is that they didn't allow the inhabitants who were there before them to live in peace. Like I said the land was in a trusteeship which was not the case I believe with England and America. I am a Christian who lives in Australia so I hope I have made my involvement crystal clear to you.
As far as the peace process goes, how can that occur when the Jews continue to build on occupied land that should be part of the Palestinian state?
This whole conflict starts in the past.
Leaerning from mistakes would mean:- Israel has retreated from Gaza, N.WB and S.Lebanon only to have missile hitting its cities. The lesson to learn is stop with the appeasement. They only thing the Arabs understand is strength.
Can you name any time the Palestinians have agreed to the idea of peace with the Jewish state still standing?
There is no legal right of return. Israel offered return after the war 1949 but they refused.
It was the Jews who lived under Dhimmi law as second class citizens on the land. It was the Arabs who started the war with the Jews from the end of WWII, they carried out the first massacres of the indigenous Jewish population who had lived there long before the large majority of the Palestine Arabs.
What legal document states the land as occupied? Read the Geneva convention. Palestine was never a country so has no connection to the legal definition of occupied territory.
Can you give any legal basis in international law which makes the green line a border?
General Armistice Agreement Between Israel & Jordan: April, 3, 1949,
Article II 2. It is also recognized that NO PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL IN ANY WAY PREJUDICE THE RIGHTS, CLAIMS AND POSITIONS OF EITHER PARTY.....
Notice how res 242 speaks of states and no mention of Palestinian Arab state.
Eugene Rostow and Justice Stone both experts in international law make it clear that there is nothing illegal about Israel building in the WB.
