Deuteronomy is a good place to start. Even today, writers on this website justify the take-over of what is left of Palestine as part of god's will.

Revisiting Hatred of the Jews

What I obviously did not get across is that I dislike this "ranking" of crimes against humanity - it detracts from who is oppressing whom today.
On the yearly anniversaries celebrating D-day or the close of World War II, the politicians of the western world make their annual "never again" speeches, and as usual neglect the dozens of acts of genocide and ethnic cleansing that have taken place since then - starting with the Nakba. In addition, neither France, England, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, or the United States has ever effectively dealt emotionally with the massive genocide over two centuries against the native Americans.

Doesn't labeling invasion or ethnic cleansing with "Territorial dispute" cause you any problems?

Neither Bush nor Obama could have undone the damage caused by Truman. in '47. As is usually the case, warnings were given and the later developments were predicted, but the desire to get re-elected was much stronger.

America has gone soft. The Founding Fathers would have never suspended the Bill of Rights at home or in Guantanamo for a causality rate under a thousandth of a percent per year. I suspect they would have seen this as the price of liberty. In contrast, many corporations in America kill orders of magnitude more people per year without demands for restrictions on fundamental rights.
The pendulum swings and as expected privatization is being reversed or stopped here in Europe. In France control of water distribution, after more than a decade of higher prices and reduced maintenance and investment, is being returned to the public sector in city after city. In Germany the negative impact on service, prices, and technical excellence caused by preparing the public train system for the stock market has been realized. A mixed system now exists where numerous private companies run trains on the public network on those routes abandoned by the state system. These experiments have led many to believe that accepting bureaucratic inefficiency is often better than allowing private companies to neglect infrastructure.
