Should Israel return the lands gained during the Six Day War (1967) and to whom?
Debate Rounds (3)
The nation of Israel was founded in 1948, when the International community decided to create a nation for the Jewish people. It was given a certain area and a limit to where the nation stopped. Misfortunately, Jerusalem was not included which became an objective for the new nation. Then it violated the treaty( although they might have just reasons to do so) and took Jerusalem. This hands of people were forced out of their homes as Israel invaded and were trapped in the Gaza Strip and West Bank. Now Israel claims that area as their own and these people are becoming or already are a stateless people. Although Israel did win the war, they did not have a right to take those lands and the just thing to do is give it back. So if my opponent was to prove his point he must prove that 1) Israel has a right to these lands. 2) Israel is not to blame for terrorist up comings 3) Israel did not violate the treaty which it was founded in.

Reasons for voting decision: A far too short debate, with forfeits from both sides. Pro conceded that Israel won a war--a war that Con noted was started by the surrounding areas. Pro argued that the just thing would be to give the lands back, but gives no justification as to why. This whole debate was far too short, but I think Con made at least a prima facie case, and Pro simply did not have an adequate rebuttal. Perhaps had the thing actually continued into the last round, it might have been a better debate, but overall, I'm rather disappointed. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
