Israel is a rogue state. If they didnt have a strange hold on the US government they'd be destroyed and the world would be a better place.

The EU is a bunch of pussies. If Israel was demolishing my buildings I would be dropping some ordnance on theirs.

Cruise Missiles are louder than words....

The United States, whose ambassador angered Israel this week with criticism of its West Bank policy, said it was strongly opposed to any moves that accelerate settlement expansion.

"We believe they're fundamentally incompatible with a two-state solution and call into question, frankly, the Israeli government's commitment to a two-state solution," Deputy State Department spokesman Mark Toner said on Wednesday.

In a development likely to further upset Europe, Israeli forces demolished six structures in the West Bank funded by the EU's humanitarian arm. The structures were dwellings and latrines for Bedouins living in an area known as E1 - a particularly sensitive zone between Jerusalem and the Dead Sea.

Israel has not built settlements in E1, with construction considered a "red line" by the United States and the EU. It could potentially split the West Bank, cutting Palestinians off from East Jerusalem, which they seek for their capital.

"This is the third time they demolished my house and every time I rebuilt it, this time also I will rebuild it and I am not leaving here. If we leave they will turn the place into a closed military zone," said Saleem Jahaleen, whose home was razed.

Freeze Israeli assets in the USA and EU too.

According to some people, Israel already owns the US, so what would be the point of that?

The land, in an area fully under Israeli civilian and military control and already used by Jewish settlers to farm dates, is situated near the northern tip of the Dead Sea.

So, uh, Israel already has the land? There is nothing to seize? It seems they are just officially declaring it theirs?

Yes, but Israel is evil, therefore every move is questioned.

The land wasn't already theirs. They were using it and saying oh it's ok, you guys still own the land. It's not like we've taken sovereign control over it. Then the Palestinians were like, yeah, but you are going to do that. We know you. Then the Israelis were like hey, that anti-semetic to assume we will do something dirty. Because of your racism we now have the moral justification to ignore your racist fears.

Oh, this is our land now. We were using it anyway so this isn't a big change. Anyone who says something negative about it is only saying it because we are Jewish and they are conspiracy theorists. It's not fair that every move of ours is questioned just because you guys are racist.

It is fucking fair to question every move they make down to their eyes blinking. It's called history.

We (Americans) took land from the native American tribes. The British expanded everywhere. If we killed everyone that ever expanded their territory, there would be no one left on earth.

Let's just stop bitching about it... the stronger society wins.
