I believe the land belongs to the Palestine because they always were there and never left the land. But the Israeli was there before and left and came back therefore the land should belong to the Palestinian because the land always belonged to them.
I believe that the Palestinian have the right to the land because they did not leave in a large amount of numbers like the Israeli did. Also the land is a holy place of Muslims. The Jewish people forced the Palestinian to leave there homeland because they were on there homeland but in the time the Jewish people were gone the Palestinian made that land there homeland.
The Palestinians should receive the land because it was the promised land to them from God. Plus the Israeli are trying to take the land by force by calling in airstrikes and destroying the city they are trying to take over.
I think the Palestinians should have the land because they would keep God company and not leave the land ever so often. The Israelis left their land and weren't keeping covenant with God. They don't deserve it because they disrespected God. So that is why I think the Palestinians deserve the land.
The Israelis were forced out, they didn't have a choice in the matter. Also the Israelis would "keep God company" as well as the Palestinians, what evidence shows that Palestinians keep better company? Also, what makes you believe the Israelis broke their covenant with God? They didn't wrong God in any way.
Lucas Long - Palestine should get the land because they had it first and they don't even have a homeland! Israel really doesn't deserve it because they have tons of homeland and saying "God gave it to us," isn't a very strong argument - Lucas Long
Actually Abraham said that they deserve the land and that is the Muslims "god" pretty much. And the Israelis actually are the ones without the land because they got it taken away from them by the Muslims when Hitler drove them out.
The Bible actually says that the Israelis were there first. Also, the Israelis don't have another homeland either, so your argument is weak. Finally, this "God that gave it to us," is the God that created the world, he created you, your parents, everything. Yet, you question his ability to give people land?
Actually, the land was not theirs. There is archeological evidence that shows that Israel was present for 3,000 years before the Arabs. Also according to the PowerPoint MS. Swanson showed us, the land was Israel's first.
I think Palestinians should have the land, one it was there home for thousand years. They might say that they had the land first but we can just say that they gave it to us. Another thing is that they r forcing them to go away they should make an agreement.
I say that the land belongs to Palestine because, Israel bases most of their reasons off of their religion. Palestine doesn't need to give up the land if the Israelis left! they left giving it up and then later just flood back in using force? that's not right. The Israelis already have a lot of land, they don't need to take what little the Palestinians have. So again i say that the land belongs to the Palestinians.
Israel already has lots of land so they should just end the war because 6,862 people have died for the Palestine and 1,109 have died for Israel so instead of having more people die for both sides they should end the war and let the Palestine have the land.
Palestinians have always been on that land alongside the Israelis. The Palestinians never left all at once like the Jews, who just abandoned there country. Instead they left in small groups so that there was always someone there.
When the U.N gave the Jews the land, The Palestinians left the country to avoid war, thinking that they could come back home, but they couldn't because the Israelis wouldn't allow them back in. I agree that the Jews were treated horribly during the holocaust, but that doesn't mean that they have to right to kick others out of there own homeland. The Palestinians were forced into refugee camps in other countries, because they had no place to go.
The Israelite were forced out of Israel by the Romans. Israel was Turkish territory in till the British took it over in World War I. The British then promised the land to the Jews. When the UN voted to give land to the Jewish people they split it between Palestine and the Jews the Palestine then waged war on the Jews but were unsuccessful so then they had to go the refugee homes because obviously the Jews couldn't trust them to not wage another war on them. Written by Joe and Will.
I believe the land should belong to the Palestine because the Israeli already own a homeland and the Palestine doesn't own there own homeland. with the Palestine getting the land they can now have there own homeland just like the Israeli.
All though this is true the Israel people worked hard on the land and made it exactly how they wanted it. They went to the land and made it exactly how the Koran said it should be. As far back as the records show, the Jewish people occupied the land, when they got there they made worked hard on it only to have all of their work taken away.
It all comes down to who really left in the first place. That would be the Israeli. When the Israeli left, the Palestine rightfully took over. The Israeli came back forcefully yet the Palestine were already there. Therefore, the Palestinians deserve the right to the land.
I think Palestine deserves the land because the Palestine claims article says that the Jews made the Palestinians leave their homes and flee to neighboring Arab countries when the Palestinians always lived on that land. Also Palestine is a holy place for Muslims too that land has always been important to Muslim faith. The Jews just took over.
I strongly believe that that the Palestinians deserve the land over the Israelis. A reason I have for this is, Palestinians have always lives on the land or environment. One evidence is that,
Palestinians and the Jews have been there for same length of time but the Jews decided to leave and go somewhere else. So once the Jews left, the land was all to the Palestinians. So the land could of been the Jews but they left. If they would have stayed their maybe they would had have a chance to own the land. But it was their decision to leave. Source-Blue Sheet/ en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israeil-Palestinian_conflict
Palestinians were there before the Jewish. Also Palestinians have always owned the land but the United Nations gave it to the Jews. Even though the Palestinians dont have anywhere else to go. The Palestinians have been there for ever and its wrong to make them leave their home.
I believe that Palestine deserves the land because it was their land in the first place, they've had the land the whole time. According to the Blue Sheet, there was no time in history when Palestine has not lived there. On the blue sheet, and I quote, "Palestinians should have their own country as well. Why do the Jews get a homeland on what is our land, and we have not homeland." What this means is that, the Jews can't just take their homeland that was rightfully theirs. They had it first and the Jews can't just come in and take it for themselves. The land rightfully belongs to the Palestinians, they didn't do anything, and the Jews just shouldn't be able to come back with force and take over the land. It was the Palestinians land in the first place and shouldn't be taken by anyone else. According to Wikipedia.org, the Palestinians have had the land since the beginning. The Jews had no right to come back forcefully. The land belongs to Palestine. Because of the Jews leaving, the Palestinians get the Land. The Jews just can't come back and take it. That's not fair. Let me give you an example: Say "Roy" and I find a chocolate bar. We decide to split it. But later on he leaves, comes back later and forcefully takes the chocolate. That's not fair! So that is why the Palestinians deserve and should get the land.
They have never left in great numbers like the Jews did. Especially the city of Jerusalem is important to Muslim faith. Palestinians should have their own country as well as the Israelite. Why cant Palestine have their own land?
The Jews still had their presence their of the city's, coins, pottery, culture, etc... This was their homeland. Also Hitler did many things to them to deserve it more than the Palestinians. The Palestinians used to be in Turkey and they were only a settlement never a country.
I believe that Palestinians deserve the land because Palestine had the land for thousands of years and then it got taken by them unfairly. The United Nations just gave the land to the Jews who did nothing deserving of the land. On the other hand the Palestinians have fought to keep their land for thousands of years.
Going back to 1000 B.C. The Canaanites ,Palestinians ancestors, were raided by the Israelites and were fled out of the country of Israel, years later most of the jews left and the Palestinians regained the land.
The Palestinians also should get the land because the Israelis left the land. If they truly wanted it they would not have left. And then the United Nations gave them back the land when if they truly wanted it they would have got it back on their own. Some people claim that the Israelis are stronger and thats why they deserve the land, but they obviously were not able to get the land back on there own so they are not necessarily stronger or more powerful
Just because the Jewish were driven out by Hitler, doesn't mean that they have the right to come back and take the land from the Palestinians. The Jewish knew how it felt to be driven out of their country, they should have respect for the Palestinians, the country was empty when they came.
According to the bible the Israelis were there first. The land was given to Abraham and they were going to start a city there. All of the evidence that they dig up was also supported that the Israelis were there, The pottery, the coins, the city, and the people. It was all evidence that the Israelis were there 3000 years before the Palestine's.
I believe Israel should be able to have the land because the land was theirs to begin with. The Israeli people went to the land and worked on it until it was exactly how the Koran wanted it. They went to the land, stayed there, and worked on it until it was "perfect" only to get all of their hard work taken away. Also the Israeli people stated, "the international community granted the Jewish people the land in 1948. United Nations including the U.S. gave land in Palestine to Israel." This evidence gives the Israeli people that the land should be considered Israels land.
The Bible is also valid in this claim of Israel having the land. "The Bible says, 'The Lord said to Abraham, 'lift up now your eyes, and look from the place where you are northward, southward, eastward, westward: for all the land which you see, to you I will give it." "Hebron is in the west bank. It is at this place where God appeared to Abram and said, 'I am giving you this land.'"
I believe that the Jewish people deserve the land, because the Israelis were there first because of archaeological findings. According to the bible land was given to Abraham who was the leader the of the Jews.

I believe that the land belongs to the Israelis because it was there land for thousands of years. The Jews were forced out of the land by Hitler. The Palestinains never really owned the land. It was always owned by the Jews. The U.N. offially gave the land to the Israelis and it is theirs.
Israel has the right to the land because there is archeological evidence that shows that the Israelis were present in Israel 3,000 years before the Palestinians were. Archeologists recovered coins, pottery and more that back up there findings.
Israelis are not really more powerful than the Palestinians, just because the United Nations supports them, doesn't make them better, the other Arab countries support Palestinians so the Palestinians may as well be able to support themselves too. Also the Palestinians never unsuccessfully defended themselves because the United Nations took the land from them and gave it to the Israelis. The Israelis never actually fought and won their land back so the Palestinians should have the land
Israel serves the U.S. as a strategic ally. "They are our strategic ally. It is good to know we have a friend in the middle east." "The war we are now facing is not against a sovereign nation; it is a group of terrorists." They serve as a roadblock to terrorism.
The land belongs to the Israelis because they captured the land in a fair war, so it's now rightfully theirs. On top of that, the Israelis protected their land through many wars. It's not fair for the Palestinians to wage war, and then demand the land even after they lost it in a fair fight.
Another reason the land should go to Israel is that they're following their religion by having this land. They are following their beliefs and making the land how their holy book, the Koran, said it should be. They worked on the hard soil until it became the exact land of the Koran. They also claim that Palestine is never mentioned in the Koran. If they were told differently, they would not be very happy. Imagine someone telling you that your religious beliefs were wrong. Another claim they made was, " God promised the land to Abraham. God gave the Jews Israel." Both of these claims have the same meaning, their holy book basically told them the land was theirs.
Also There is biblical evidence that shows that the land was promised to the Israelites. According to their bible, God gave Abraham the land who then gave it to the Israelites. In the Muslim religion, Abraham is also a base in the scriptures. This means it makes no sense for the Arabs to have the land because they would be going against their scriptures
They Israelis won many wars for the land, just because someone put them their in the first place doesn't mean they couldn't support themselves. It just means that other people thought it would be a good place for them.
Israelis were their first, "Israelis had a presence 3000 years. The coins, the city, the pottery, the culture." "The Romans concurred the land. Israel had no homeland, although the Jews were aloud to live there."
I think it belongs to Israel because the territory was captured in the wars, so it belonged to no one. Then it was given to the Jews by the United Nations and only them. Then the Palestinians invaded and took over their land and demanded for the Jews to give it over due to spiritual reasons. The land should go to the Jews, it was given to the Israelis and the Palestines started all of the fighting.
It did belong to them but the Israelis left the land in the first place and never kept covenant with God. They don't deserve it if they disrespected God like that. They were forced away from the land but even when they came back, they cared about NOTHING but their land. Not even God...
I believe that the Jews should have the land because The Jewish people settled and developed the land. As far back as records show the Jewish people occupied the land, they also successfully defended the land by winning several wars and usually the deal with the war is if they won for whatever they were fighting they should get the land and the Jews won and they should be able to have the land. Also god gave the Jews the land and it is special to them because Abraham led them to it. So I believe that the Jews should have the land.
