Israel still systematically appropriates land with the complicity of US foreign policy.
I'm really at a loss to understand the meaning of your post above. I don't know why you are bringing veterans into the thread? I'm a veteran from the Vietnam Era. Is there a reason you don't spell out the word God? I think Orthodox Jews don't spell out the word also?
I don't see Israel systematically appropriating land, since the land was obtained after the 1967 war, and it is too strategic to give back to Jordan. Since this land is under their hegemony, it makes sense to me to utilize the land for its best use, like in eminent domain.
Just my opinion, it has been estimated that if there had been no Holocaust, there would be 32 million Jews in the world today. However, there are 14 million today, and getting less with all the intermarriage with Christians, mainly. So, if those Orthodox Jewish settlers on the West Bank have 10 kids each, I applaud that effort. You know like a game warden telling fisherman that they have to throw back a fish into the lake, until the fish increase their numbers. Interesting how people treat fish with more concern then they do the people of the first monotheistic religion.
By the way, in the military, I met a good many people that were superior to me in intelligence, and other qualities/traits. This didn't bother me at all. I know my place in society. I especially was impressed with old line WASP's, whose families came here in the 17th or 18th century. So, since I defer to old line WASP's, with such veneration, how can I then treat other people equally? It would be trivializing the fact that the families of old line WASP's struggled for centuries to give us the lovely country we live in. I guess I internalized the social class system I discovered in my four years in the military.
