purchasing by 'merchants'

Reader comment on item: Not Stealing Palestine but Purchasing Israel

Although it feels a bit unsavory to think of Jews/Zionists and purchasing, it is the truth and that is what matters in the end. The returning Jews did not come in and massacre, pillage and destroy communities like other conquerers; rather they were civilized and considerate in their dealings and gave the resident arabs what they wanted, money.
