My thinking is with the British / French mandate, the UN Partition, The 6 day war that was initiated by Israel that it was a Zionist invasion and occupation of Palestinians territory.
I don't know the history prior to WW1, but do understand that the area was part of the Ottoman Empire for 600+ years prior.
I don't know what justification Israel has for claiming this territory as their own.
Do you know why Israel acted pre-emptively in 1967?
I think the young people enjoy it when I "get down," verbally, don't you?
