You are just rationalizing in a highly biased way and none of your arguments have legal bearing.
What do you think is the basis of all legal injunctions? Reason. When reasoning upon how why an aggressive country should be penalized it becomes
plain that the aggressor is actually no different from the particular example of someone harming someone else; here, in law, we punish the aggressor
in order to show that we care about maintaining public order, and that those who harm the public order harm the whole of the society they live in.
When an aggressive country attacks another country, they force upon them a situation that the defensive country does not want to be in. So, if after
the war ends, and in an international tribunal the situation can be adjudged, it should be clear that the aggressor should be treated in the same
manner as in a particular case. The guilty party should not have a right to ask for his land back, because waging war implies the possibility of
losing, i.e loss of land. This should, in my opinion, and in the opinion of the professor of Harvard Law Alan Dershowitz - as well as in Hugo
Grotius' view - aggressors in war should be treated.
I know it completely dismantles your argument, so I suspect you will either ignore this fact, or shift the conversation to another area in which your
hatred towards Israel can be justified.
How is it "right" to punish the Palestinians for something a mythical "The Arabs" did?
"The Arabs" is also called the Arab League. And before 1948, there was no such thing as "Palestinians" - they had no sense of national identity -
which was created only post 1948, and they really had no culture or religious proclivity to differentiate them from other Arabs in the region (such as
"Jordanians", and "Syrians", and "Lebanese"...as other's have mentioned, at that point in Arab history, all people to that religion were more
or less known as "Syrians"; and their administrative center was not in Palestine, but in Damascus.)
So when the Arab League issued commands, they issued them to the general Arab population.
You may not know, but back in the late 40's, 50's and especially the 60's, Pan-Arabism was the rage in the Middle East. Why do you think Iraq,
Egypt and Syria have such similar flags?
There seems to be a de facto amnesty for criminals in Israel because of their connection with the self-appointed Global elites.
Oh, so more antisemitic theories. That is essentially the crux of your position.
Why is Israel anymore 'connected' to the global elites than any other country? Because "Jews control the world"?
This oil shell will most likely result in more travesties by the Israelis, displacing whatever Palestinians may still be in the area. (and giving
nothing to the true owners of this resource)
Firstly, almost all of the deposits are in the Negev. One or two may be in the west bank, the rest are in the far south, and a few in the center.
Jordan too has many of these oil rock deposits.
