1) Dr. Yehuda Blum, former Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Israel to the United Nations on June 11 , 1979 clarified Bill’s misconception as to Jews’ rights to reside on West Bank land:
“A corollary of the inalienable right of the Jewish people to its Land is the right to live in any part of Eretz Yisrael, including Judea and Samaria which are an integral part of Eretz Yisrael. Jews are not foreigners anywhere in the Land of Israel . Anyone who asserts that it is illegal for a Jew to live in Judea and Samaria just because he is a Jew, is in fact advocating a concept that is disturbingly reminiscent of the ‘Judenrein’ [‘Clean of Jews’] policies of Nazi Germany banning Jews from certain spheres of life for no other reason than that they were Jews. The Jewish villages in Judea, Samaria and the Gaza district are there as of right and are there to stay.
“The right of Jews to settle in the Land of Israel was also recognised in the League of Nations ‘Mandate for Palestine’ which stressed ‘the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and … the grounds for reconstituting’ – I repeat, reconstituting ‘their national home in that country’.
“The Mandatory Power was also entrusted with the duty to encourage ‘close settlement by Jews on the land, including state lands and waste lands not required for public purposes.'”

Is not Hanna Failer a Jewish squatter on Palestine soil? Secretary Clinton’s business just happens to be exactly what she is doing. Appointed by The 45th President of the United States of America to represent my countries interests on the international stage. I believe these ingnorant public comments made by selfish fools such as Hanna Failer who misinform the average viewer with disingenous remarks will continue to hinder resolution. I support then end of bloodsheed first and two state solution second. If Isreal wants to promote this position I am inclinded to support Hamas and will incourage my neighbors and our congressional leaders to push for a unilaterally impartial position and withdraw ALL support for Isreal until such time that Isreal can LEARN to be more Christlike.
