Comments on: Israelis give their votes to Palestinians in Facebook campaign http://972mag.com/israelis-give-their-votes-to-palestinians-in-facebook-campaign/63318/ Independent commentary and news from Israel & Palestine Sat, 20 Dec 2014 01:30:22 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.8 By: Friedrich http://972mag.com/israelis-give-their-votes-to-palestinians-in-facebook-campaign/63318/comment-page-1/#comment-103527 Thu, 17 Jan 2013 15:49:44 +0000 http://972mag.com/?p=63318#comment-103527 Well, the Palestinians have just slightly fewer advantages than the Israelis where the maintenance of infrastructure is concerned. I’m talking, of course, about the 6 billion dollars a year in aid that my country gives Israel for no reason better than the fact that Israel has a perversely influential lobbying organization.

Having reluctantly visited earlier this year after many years of chosen absence, I feel the urgency of the situation is unparalleled. A land of injustice and un-freedom. All support!!

Exactly! But I wonder why you told me this, since it’s obvious and I’ve said it myself many times? By the way, I ain’t your buddy.

For your information there have been Jews there for at least 3000 years without a break.
If it was not for the continuous murders and killings over the last 2000 years the Jewish population would have been far greater.
All the Jewish land acquired over the last 150 years has been legally bought from local landowners.
That does not include the lands owned by Jews prior to the 1850s’ that was owned by Jews, often for hundreds of years
State owned land is just that.
All state land in the British Mandate areas that fell under Israel, became Israeli State Land.
This applies to all countries irrespective of race, religion , creed or colour

Now that’s a huge chunk of nonsense.

On too many levels.

You don’t even understand the the story is not about Jews/non-Jews but rather Israelis and Palestinians.
