Reader comment on item: Not Stealing Palestine but Purchasing Israel

Submitted by stephen (Israel), Jun 23, 2011 at 17:57

As you have rightly shown that all these righteous states today preaching in the U.N. have themselves aquired there vast lands through conquest of the original inhabitants.Why does the world use the name Jerusalem for the holy city ,and not call it by another name?The Jewish people called it Yerushalayim in the bible,phonetically they sound very similar. When these states are talking of the term "Illegal Occupation" it sounds very hypocritical. Why can a Jew not live in Judea and Samaria, when he can live in Paris, New York and London, if this is not racism then what is?
