“A UN fact-finding mission says the Israeli government's settlement policy has clearly violated the rights of Palestinians and breaches one of the Geneva Conventions.

The settlements contravene the 1949 Geneva Conventions forbidding the transfer of civilian populations into occupied territory, which could amount to war crimes that fall under the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (ICC), it said.”

So, YOU like to pick and choose which violations that YOU wish to support, or not?

What about the 1948 resolution that the Arab camp has violated since day one....or UN Resolution 242 section II, that the Arabs have continuously violated since 1967?

YOU only seem willing to cherry pick on possible Israeli violations...but say absolutely nothing about the two MAIN violations by the Arab side...that have perpetuated this conflict for some 65 years now.

Until there is full recognition that a Jewish homeland in the Middle East has a right to exist (from the ARAB side)...there will be no serious negotiations with regard to final border lines, land swap deals, and so forth.

Israelis are not going to even think of dividing Jerusalem, or giving up the West Bank, Golan Heights, etc...IF their neighbours (from the get-go)....do not even recognize their right to exist in the region.

Israel will not negotiate with, nor accommodate a spitting cobra in her midst.

Not going to happen...

You may be a lonely soul holding on to your arguments.

You are so terribly wrong and unjust here.
