Israel bought and paid for their ancient homeland. Something I don't think I don't think they had to do in the first palace because you have idiots like Tommy boy and the British Expelled nutcase who don't have a clue when it comes to history and think it belongs to the Palestinians who paid nothing, nada zilch!! In 1944, Jews paid between $1000 and $1100 per acre mostly for arid or semi-arid land; in the same year, rich black soil in Iowa was selling for about $110 per acre (U.S. Dept. of Agriculture)"<quoted text>
kinda like we did to the American Indians
--Land Ownership in Palestine, 1880-1948
According to British government statistics, prior to the establishment of the State of Israel, 8.6% of the land area now known as Israel was owned by Jews; 3.3% by Arabs who remained there; 16.5% by Arabs who left the country. More than 70% of the land was owned by the BRITISH GOVERNMENT!!! Under international law, ownership passed to Israel in 1948. The public lands included most of the Negev Desert --Survey of 1946, British Mandate Government
At least we gave the Indian millions of Acres and Federal aid not to mention other benefits!!
