Did you know that every time Israel takes over a Palestinians home, a buffer zone immediately goes up around that home? No Palestinians are allowed within a certain distance of that home once it is taken over. So every single time Israel brings in their "teddy bears" (a name they call their giant bulldozers) and destroyed a Palestinian home, Palestinians are (under Israeli law) immediately banned from even so much as walking through the area.

I can't help but wonder if there is not something "a little on the wrong side" of annexing a part of an established state into another country.
I have a feeling such actions may be frowned upon by others in the international community.
Would this not be much like the U S annexing a part, or all, of Canada into the U S ?
Since the other guy could not answer the question, I will propose it to you.
What country does the land belong to?
Israel informed the 15 members of the United Nations Security Council last week, as well as several other prominent European Union countries, that if the Palestinian Authority persists in its efforts to gain recognition in September as a state within the 1967 borders, Israel would respond with a series of unilateral steps of its own.
Please show me where I am dishonest.

Either show me directly where I have lied, or you are getting reported.
Okay, here are a couple of them.
One and a half million Arabs live in Israel, constituting about 20 percent of that country's population. They have the same rights as all other Israeli citizens.
Lie number 1: Arabs do not have the same rights as Israelis. You already admitted the checkpoints exist. They are also restricted from having family members visit them. That is just a couple examples. Do you not admit this is true?
Arabs in Israel live freer lives than Arabs living anywhere in the Arab world. No Arab in any Arab country has the civil rights and personal liberty that Arabs in Israel enjoy.
Lie number 2: Arabs in other countries can usually travel as they please. It is easier for an Egyptian, Jordanian, or even people from the United Arab Emirates to travel abroad and return without incident, compared to a Palestinian. If you don't believe me check with their embassies. The source you provided is once again laughable. If you call white phosphorus shelling and apartheid civil rights and personal liberty you can have it.
I could probably sit here all day and pick your posts apart, but I don't have time to debate Israeli apertheid.
You still going to report me?

What a joke.
You try to refute the 1000's of rocket and mortar attacks claim by saying: “ In fact THIS YEAR ONLY 173 rockets have been fired and 195 mortars which is a total of 368 “ ? As if it sums up the 1000's attacks carried out by the Palestinians since early 2000.
you arrogantly add “ONLY”, as if it's firecrackers were dealing with here, or as if 368 attacks is a negligible number. And lastly “only one dead”. Yes, Israel should apologize for protecting its own people.
You make me sick.
Put your money where your mouth is, go live in Israel for awhile and tell us how it feels to be under constant terror attacks. What it's like to feel the fragments and shock wave of “ only 173 rockets and 195 mortars” .
Unreal man how ridiculous the arguements these people try to come up with.Israel could have wiped out Palestine by now.
