Google "Internet giant Google has changed the tagline on the homepage of its Palestinian edition from 'Palestinian Territories' to 'Palestine'. The change, introduced on 1 May, means google.ps now displays 'Palestine' in Arabic and English under Google's logo. Using the word Palestine is controversial for some. Israeli policy is that the borders of a Palestinian state are yet to be agreed." Good but daring move.

And they are welcome to stay. No one is kicking them out.


But you are kicking them out. Building illegal settlements while negotiations are happening.

But they do not have the right to take away parts of someone elses (very small country) to create yet another Arab country.


But you have a right, apparently...

Don't confuse national rights with individual rights. I am talking about national.


Oh the irony.

Why is it that Chinese have a right to build in China but Israelis don't have a right to build in Israel?

because they are building their settlements in palestine, not in israel

if you want to draw parallels to israel/palestine try something like china/tibet

I mentioned "illegal settlements". That is, those settlements are illegal under UN law. Have some respect for the law that made your country possible.
