"They will not be dispossessed because they unlawfully squatted on someone else's property." "Thou shalt not steal." This commandment even applies to Jewish supremacists like crazy Caroline.

Jews were buying (buying BACK)land in that are since early 1900s.
they had an International fund to do it.
Plus,both Egypt and Jordan REFUSED the return of Gaza and West Bank,after they signed peace treaties with Israel. No land theft occurred.
Palestinians ABANDONED their lands upon orders from the Arab leaders,before war broke out in 1948. they also were ordered to not return after hostilities ceased.

Wrong on all counts, Jay.

The West Bank, per the UN partition plan of 1947, and the Armistice of 1949, was to be a Palestinian homeland, under the rule of Jordan. After the 1967 war, Israel allowed only a small portion of displaced Palestinians to return. The policy of Israel has been to ruthlessly maintain a demographic edge for Jews.

Not, as others have pointed out, that this is in any way AMERICA'S problem. Our best policy towards the impossible situation in the Middle East is "hands off."

No, Paulus, YOU are wrong. The Arabs rejected the partition plan before it was implemented, and thus forfeited their claim to the disputed territories. Israel allowed most of the Arabs who wished to return to do so. The Arab governments forced most to remain in "refugee camps" in order to keep pressure on Israel to retreat from lands that were legally theirs. See the recent report for details on why, according to both international and Israeli law, Judeah, Samaria, the Golan and Gaza are Israeli posessions. And where in this piece deos Glick suggest that this is America's problem to solve? You are reading that into Glick's words. If you don't care, then don't read it.
By Tuesday, 50 Israeli families will have been tossed out of their homes in their village of Migron, which is set for destruction.

They will not be dispossessed because they unlawfully squatted on someone else's property.

The residents of Migron will be tossed from their homes - on the order of the Supreme Court - because Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein and his associates believe they are above the law. And due to this opinion, Weinstein and his associates refuse to recognize the sovereign authority of Israel's government or to act in accordance with its lawful decisions.
