How can one justify the occupation of Palestine?
[Answer has been Collapsed by Quora because it is considered Offensive!]
Occupation by Who?
The Occupation of Palestine by illegal Arab squatters known as Palestinians cannot be justified! It needs to stop!
Â Jews need to settle the Liberated area of Judah and Samaria. This is the West Bank of Palestine. The east bank of Palestine is now known as Jordan.
Â This too is at present illegally and immorally occupied by Palestinian and Arab squatters. They should be persuaded to move out.
Â The same principle applies to Sinai, Lebanon, Syria, and parts of Turkey, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and the Isle of Cyprus!
Â Palestine historically consisted of the areas now know as Gaza, Israel, the West Bank, and Jordan.
Â It once belonged to Israel and Judah. The Hebrews were exiled and squatters moved in.
Â These illegal occupants eventually became Islamic and since 1948 have been calling themselves Palestinians.
Â [The name Palestine is derived from a Latin term invented by the Romans to erase the former presence of Jews from Judah in the region.
Â Before 1948 the nomination Palestinian was applied to both Jewish and Arab inhabitants of the area.
Â In 1948 the Jews fought a war of defence in which the intention of the enemy was to exterminate them. They won the war and displaced some of the enemy.
Â Meanwhile Jews driven out of Arab lands fled to Israel and settled there.
Â More Jewish refugees from Arab Lands entered than Palestinian Arabs who left. ]
Â Before then, some Jews had always lived in the Land their numbers being determined by the political and economic possibilities.
Â Now more and more Jews have come in. At first they came to the areas held before 1967.
Â Now they have begun to go to areas held after 1967.
Â The same rationale applied to the borders held before 1967 also applies to the territories now held after 1967.
Â The Arabs know this and say it openly. We should listen to them on this point.
Â In the same way as they want to get rid of ALL the settlers who came in after 1967 so do they wish to remove all those who were in the area before that!
Â The Jews have to settle the so-called territories because the Bible tells them to do so.
Â That is the core area of the Promised Land according to the Bible and Jewish history.
Â It also contains most of the water (in underground aquifers) available to the region.
Â It contains other resources including space to dwell within and the ability to keep the Arab enemy at a greater distance from the population centers in the event of hostilities.
It has been claimed that the settlements are practically unjustifiable.
Â It is said that they divide the people in Israel, and that they are condemned by the entire international community.
We would answer:
The settlements do not divide the Israeli People BUT they do provide a point of focus for existing divisions to express themself.
Â The Israeli People may be divided between:
Â (1) They who believe in God, the Bible, and Judaism, who endeavor to have regular family life with children, and to see a continuation of the Jewish Nation. Most of this group supports the settlements.
Â (2) They who do not believe in God, lead promiscuous lifes, encourage homosexuality and feminist agendas, and wish to diminish the expression of Jewishness among Jews. This second group is against the settlements.
Â They often support illegal, immoral, and inappropriate, Arab Palestinian occupation of the Promised Land! Stop the Occupation!
