The Israel have fought multiple times to defend the land that they find rightfully theirs. People have lost lives because they feel so passionate about their sacred place. That sacred place should not be taken away from them.

I disagree with Nick. According to the Book of Genesis, the land was first promised by God to the descendants of Abram. It SHOWS that the land WAS given by God and that is exactly why the Jews deserve the land of Israel.

I believe that the Israelis rightfully own the land of Israel because they have fought many times to get it from the Palestinian. Many lives were lost and many people were injured.

Another reason I think that the Israelis should have the land is because they were offered the land of Israel.

Evidence: In 1948 the Jewish people returned to there homeland, Israel. The United Nation gave them the land and Israel became a new country.

I think that Israel deserves the land because the territory was captured in wars and given to the Israelites out of sorrow. This shows that it was a gift to Israel, not Palestine. Also God gave Jews the land in ancient times, and the Jewish people settled an developed in the land as far back as records show. This land was a given to the Isrealites, over many occasions not to the Palestinians.

it says that the Jews were there first. But that doesn't mean they get full rights. It just never recorded the Palestinians. and also, They shouldn't act like little kids. "We were here first." "NO you weren't" "Yeah" "No." stop acting like that they are all adults they should work it out like adults not base it off of "we were here first."

The Israeli didn't do anything wrong, but the Palestinian allied themselves with terrorists. For example, in March 1981, the towns of Zahlé in the Bekaa and East Beirut were shelled. In Lebanon, even the Red Cross was a target for the Syrians. Sister [Nun] Marie Sophie Zoghbi was one of the Red Cross ambulance drivers since the beginning of the war. She had forced her way through the front to the south of the town of Zahlé on the Saadnayel road. Alone at the wheel of her ambulance, she'd gone to fetch the dying in Zahlé. The Syrians shot the vehicle, killing her on the spot. The town's hospital was eradicated by thousands of shells which fell on it during one night. Water, food, and medicines grew rarer and the corpses of some of the wounded who'd died under the shelters couldn't be evacuated. In all, the fighting had left some two hundred dead and five hundred wounded in Beirut alone. The Palestinians, too, had participated actively in the Zahlé shelling. The Palestinian military commander was Ahmad Ismail. (I found that on this website - http://www.gotc-se.org/statements/Albani/Warcrimes.html )

Really, its the only place in the world that has a large community of Jew's; its important for people to stay connected with there heritage and where they come from. On the website (http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/01/us/jewish-coalition-rejects-lobbying-groups-bid-to-join.html?_r=0) on New York Times, “People whose views don’t fit with those running longtime organizations are not welcome, and this is sad proof of that,” he added. “It sends the worst possible signal to young Jews who want to be connected to the Jewish community, but also want to have freedom of thought and expression.” This shows that people in the Jewish community should be able to connect with each other.

I believe Israeli deserves the land, and here are some of my reasons. First off, the Jews settled in the land first. Right off the bat, that's one of the BIG reasons they have the right to the land. Another reason would be, when the Jews went to war with the Palestine, the Jews actually ended up winning, giving them the right to own the land. Both sides wanted peace, but kept fighting. The result, Jews won the war, allowing them to capture the land for themselves. Even when the Jews left the land, and the Palestine took over, they came back "forcefully," once again, taking over and controlling the land. My third and final reason is, the Jews stated that, "God gave us the land." If this is true, the Jews very rightfully deserve the land of Israel.

Basing your rights off of religion is a horrible idea. Because 1. Not everyone believes in that stuff. 2. It doesn't mean you have divine rights and 3. the government/architects build houses yet people come from all over and buy them in different areas. So isn't that the same thing. only difference is if its land or a building.

I say that Palestine deserves the land. Mainly because all of Israels Reasons are largely based around their religion, which doesn't provide great proof. MY first reason that Palestine deserves the land is because the Jews left pretty much saying "here have it." MY evidence to support this is that when the Jews left the Palestinians came and started to live there. Then the Jews come back and try to forcefully "regain" the land. If they want it that bad, try settling on terms or you know, they could just live on the land together. Anyway, my second reason is that the Jews have plenty of land already. They say that the land is theirs, but really the Palestinians are being pushed into little refugee areas while the Jews control most if not all of the land right now. Now they will say something like "God gave the land to the Jews." but they have to think, "Just because you say that, doesn't mean everyone else believes you have divine rights." So in conclusion I say that the Palestinians should have the land.

I believe that the land belongs to Palestine. One reason is that the Palestine always lived at the land and never left. while the Israeli was once at the land and left only to come back to fight and have wars over the land. The Israeli has only one nation and that means that the do not take very well care of there land to only have one nation. The Palestine has 21 states that they owned this means that the Palestine takes very well care of there land and keeps up with it. Palestine has more responsibility so they should deserve the land.

Palestinians should get at least half of Israel because, Palestinians have always been on that land and now they have no homeland. They left in small groups, but there has always been some of them there, unlike Israelis who left all at once.

there is many reason why each country should overtake the land but the advantages over rule on the side of the Palestinians, Israelite's have left multiple times and returned.

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.

I believe Palestine should have the land because they had it first! It's their home land and they deserve it, even though god supposedly gave the Jewish that land. But I think that that point could be disputed because god giving them their land isn't good argument when Palestine already had it in the first place. This is a very lopsided war because the USA is granting Israel $8.5 million and Palestine get $0! Plus for my strongest fact, I found that only 129 Israel kids were killed. I realize that that's bad, but 1,523 Palestinians are way worse. That's why Palestine should get the land no doubt. -Lucas Long

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. Thank you.

Also my second reason is that the Jewish already have a homeland and the Arab do not have a homeland. And without a homeland there is no place to call home. If the Jewish got to have the land they would have two different homelands and that is not very fair to the Arab who deserve the homeland.
