Freeze on new Israeli settlements in Palestinian territories: Since Israel is a Jewish nation, does it has a right to settle on land with a Jewish population?

Freeze on new Israeli settlements in Palestinian territories: Since Israel is a Jewish nation, does it has a right to settle on land with a Jewish population?
  • There should be a freeze on Israeli settlements in Palestinian territories

    New Israeli settlements present new targets for attacks and an escalation of violence between Israel and Palestine. A freeze on Israeli settlements in Palestinaian Territories would help to keep things more simple, by reducing violence and creating an atmosphere for negotiation. If the Israelis build in Palestinian territories, the Palestinians will react and the conflict will be prolonged.

  • They should keep within the pre-1967, recognised borders.

    The very existence of settlements in the West Bank and Gaza contradicts with the 49th article of the Geneva Convention ((IV) relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War) which dictates that those living on settlements are committing war crimes. Secondly, many Palestinians feel that Israel isn't 'serious' about peace talks when they are effectively turning Palestine into a vast series of Islands separated by segregation and settlements.

  • Israel Needs to Stay Within Recognized Borders

    Israel needs to stay within its own borders and not press into Palestinian territory. The extra settlements exacerbate an already tense situation in the region. Anytime Israel increases its territory, Palestinians fight back with suicide bombers and rocket attacks. It doesn't matter who lives in what part of the region. Israel should maintain its borders as-is.
