Re: Israel's Settlement Policy

I support their right to exist and be free.  I also support them as a democratic country with a pretty good record in that regard.  Some of the things that they do....

A while ago I watched an interview with a Hamas leader and the interviewer asked him about his refusal to accept Israel's right to exist.  He answered that in order for him to do that, Israel has to first define what Israel is.

I hate to agree with him, but he's right.  Is he supposed to accept the Israel of today?  Of 1967?  Of 1948?

It's easy to say you accept Israel's right to exist, but if you support their right to exist as they are today, occupiers, then you are contradicting yourself when you say  you don't support their settlement expansion.

Either they need to annex the West Bank and grant its citizens rights (which will never happen), or they dismantle settlements and give back West Bank and East Jerusalem (which will equally never happen).

I can't' support' a country like that that knocks down homes and has keeps millions of people without human rights. 

How about you, which "Israel" do you support?
