#2 Boy, accusing others of illegally occupying land is NOT a conversation that Israelis want to start. Yikes. It will not end well for them.

#3 ..they didn't start it, Ben and Jerry's were way ahead of them. On that note, if you have know human history, very very few people can claim original ownership of the land they sit on. In the West, about the only people left are the Basques.

#9 Why doesn't Israel live up to its standards it's claiming to uphold here? Stop occupying land. It's pure psychological projection to accuse others of what you are guilty of yourself.

#10 But I thought they already gave The Sinai back to Egypt?

#11 Stop occupying land.

If only the Arab countries had not kept starting wars with Israel — and losing them, Tiny Jeater6933 — Israel would not have ended up doing all that conquering you object to. And having started and lost three wars in a row (1948, 1967, and 1973), if the Arab countries had been willing to give up their arrogance just the tiniest bit to negotiate peace treaties with Israel, they could have got all they’d lost plus the improvements Israel made in the meantime.

We know this is true because Israel gave Egypt back most of the Sinai (and did not have to take back the Gaza Strip) after they signed a peace treaty in 1979, Jordan got back two properties and did not have to take back the West Bank — both Egypt and Jordan have found the Palestinians just as troublesome for Arab rulers as for Jewish ones, and have refused to accept the headache. And while the Oslo Accords Israel signed with the Palestinians gave them self-determination within their communities in the Palestinian Territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, preparatory to signing a proper peace treaty which would have given them control of the rest — the Palestinians have consistently refused to sign anything since Oslo II in 1995. And we just saw in Gaza what happens when Israel just walks away from Palestinian territory — Israel completely pulled out of the Gaza Strip in 2005, and has been attacked regularly from Gaza ever since.

So you see, the reason Israel is still occupying portions of the West Bank is because despite Israeli efforts, it is the Palestinians that refuse to negotiate a serious peace treaty, not the Israelis.

#12 The same 'objectors' have no problem with the Russians keeping Kaliningrad, formerly German East Prussia for hundreds of years which they picked up a mere 3 years before the Arabs launched their first war of annihilation against Israel.

#13 "The Jews? An insatiable breed,
Seizing land that they don't even need,
For they shouldn't exist!"
Sure, this Gazan was pissed,
And all billionaire Saudis agreed
That those Hebrews were selfish indeed.

#14  Problem is Ben&Jerry are not illegally occupying someone else's land, Israel is and has been since 1967.

None of you guys would tolerate a foreign power doing to us what Israeli Jews do to the Arabs in East Jerusalem and the West bank. So why support them doing that to Arabs over there??
