"The Jews did not invade Israel or Palestine" -- according to Infidel

"The Bible indicates that God cautioned the Israelites against the sexual depravities of the Canaanites and their fertility cult (Leviticus 18:27). Thus the land of the Canaanites (specifically the Amorites, Hivites, Hethites, Girgashites and Jebusites) was deemed suitable for conquest by the Israelites partly on moral grounds. Deuteronomy 20:16-17, one of the 613 mitzvot, prescribes that no inhabitants of the cities of six Canaanite nations, the same as mentioned in 7:1, minus the Girgashites, are to be left alive."
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canaan)

The Canaanites were the original people of the the land that is known as Palestine/ Israel.

In 1945 the majority of the land was OWNED by Palestinians (http://domino.un.org/maps/m0094.jpg), so just because 2000 years ago the Jews settled in what was Canaan it does not make it theirs. In fact since the land was settled by Canaan before the Jews, and since Phoenicians were members of the Canaanites, and since the descendents of the Phoenicians are believed to be the Lebanese then the land of Israel should be given back to the people of Lebanon.

Otherwise let us leave ancient history to history books and look at history that is in living memory. And living memory tells us that Israel was created on land owned by Palestinian Arabs.
And just because these Palestinians kept THEIR land barren that does not justify the occupation of this land...And yes, it will take either the genocide of the rejectionists to give Israel a victory or else give to Palestinians what is due to Palestinians, and that being the Palestinian land which the UN map of owership demonstrates quite clearly.

Americans can see no wrong in the brutal and barbaric way that Zionists siezed Palestinian land. That is understandable because the history of the US began with the brutal and barbaric acquisition of land that Native Americans lived on for thousands of years before.
