Israel and Land.

Reader comment on item: Obama vs Netanyahu, Round Three
in response to reader comment: Negotiating in the souk

Submitted by Deborah (United States), Jun 5, 2011 at 13:30

Israel is not being asked to give up any land and get nothing in return. It depends on which part of the history of Civilization you would like to refer to about who owns what land. It appears to me that Arabs as well as some other think it is A-OK to move in and squat on land. Individual and private property rights are fairly new if we include thousands of years of the history of humans. Make no mistake about it; all wars are fought for plunder. The organization responsible for the war either wants, land, slaves, or natural resources or all of the above. They will tell you it is for a religion or some other noble cause but you only need to see who profits to know better.

To have a lasting Peace in Palestine/Israel each side must make some sacrifice and each must get some of what they want. After that it is important that all of the World agrees with the negotiated agreement and stays out of the mix unless the UN determines that there is a need for further debate.
