2. build one house, apt for each pal released

3. We must massively build Judea/Samaria because we own them.
Chaim ,   Israel   (10.19.11)
We must never make any bargain regarding Judea and Samaria. Nor does building in Judea and Samaria have anything to do with the atrocious Shalit deal. We must massively build in Judea and Samaria because they are ours. We own them. They have been ours for more than 3,500 years and always will be ours. Many legal scholars have incontrovetribly proven our ownership of these lands.
4. @ 3 Chaim
Harmen ,   Leiden, Netherlands   (10.19.11)
Dear Chaim, you know that for every scholar who claims that these areas belong to Israel, many scholars can be found who will argue otherwise. The essence is, the territory is disputed; two sides claim it. Negotiations or a binding resolution by the superpowers, just as when Israel was created, will bring a more final status to the area.
5. Tzohar rabbis study something else rather than Torah
observer ,   israel   (10.19.11)
aren't the Ten commandments including at least TWO prohibiting stealing and be not good to neighbors.
6. Sorry Harmen, #3, you generalize
Robert Haymond ,   Israel/Canada   (10.19.11)
without giving any specific evidence. You might just read Torah and associated biblical scholars. Your own statement is sophmoric, i.e., trying to appear educated but remaining cliched and ignorant.
7. #4. No legal argument vs. Israeli ownership of Judea/Samaria
Chaim ,   Israel   (10.20.11)
#4 Harmen. Contrary to your claim, there is NO genuine legal argument against Israeli ownership of Judea and Samaria. There is only political opposition by Israel's enemies and false friends. Many world renowned international law experts, such as Eugene Rostow, author of U.N. Resolution 242, have proven Israel owns Judea and Samaria. To this day, NOBODY has seriously challenged Danny Ayalon's "The Truth About The West Bank", which sets out the basic facts of Israeli ownership. Ayalon challenged the P.A. to a public debate and nobody in the entire P.A. rose to the challenge. Harmen, deep down inside, even Israel's enemies know this land belongs to the Jews.
8. 100% occupied
observer ,   Egypt   (10.20.11)
no single world country identifies the West Bank & Jerusalem as not occupied. no single world country identifies the West Bank & Jerusalem as disputed land.
9. #8. Calling Judea/Samaria "occupied" is 100% politics.
Chaim ,   Israel   (10.20.11)
Fad, most nations once voted to condemn Zionism as a form of racism. This was 100% politics and zero percent truth. Referring to Judea and Samaria as "occupied" is also 100% politics and zero percent law. Nobody in the entire P.A. has even risen to challenge Danny Ayalon on this issue. Nor is anyone seriously challenging Eugene Rostow, or any of countless other international law experts who've incontrovertibly proven Judea and Samaria belong to Israel.
10. Jews build, Arabs vote, simple
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (10.21.11)
11. Proof!
Taz Man ,   USA   (10.21.11)
All I need is the proof found in the Old Testament. The land belongs to the rightful descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (who was renamed Israel). So if God said it...let it be so...let it be done! The Muslims, therefore, have no legitimate claim to the land, no matter what their false phophet declares. May the true God (not allah) bless Israel and His Jerusalem! A Christian Zionist
12. #11 you can't have proof and disproof in the same Torah
observer ,   Egypt   (10.23.11)
The promise that God made to Abraham in Genesis 12:3, "And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed." Is a promise that God made to just one person, Abraham. The original Hebrew is in the second person singular, meaning that God is speaking only to Abraham. The King James Version correctly reflects this grammatical construction, since "thee" is singular, referring only to one person, whereas "ye" would refer to multiple persons. They say that the promise of Genesis 12:3 applies only to the descendants of Isaac (Of course, there is no mention of Isaac in Genesis 12:3. They often misquote the verse, saying it refers to "blessing Israel," but Israel is not mentioned in the verse either).
